  1. 1. Social platforms
  2. 2. wikis • collaborative documents • shared online workspaces • searchable knowledge (text, images, tags, docs) • anyone can post or edit (controllable)
  3. 3. • A wiki is a collection of web pages designed to enable anyone who accesses it to contribute or modify content, using a simplified markup language[1][2]. Wikis are often used to create collaborative websites and to power community websites. For example, the collaborative encyclopedia Wikipedia is one of the best known wikis.[2] Wikis are used in businesses to provide affordable and effective intranets and for Knowledge Management. Ward Cunningham, developer of the first wiki software, WikiWikiWeb, originally described it as quot;the simplest online database that could possibly workquot;.[3] • quot;Wiki Wikiquot; (/wiːkiː wiːkiː/) is a reduplication of quot;wikiquot;, a Hawaiian word for quot;fastquot;. It has been suggested that quot;wikiquot; means quot;What I Know Isquot;. However, this is a backronym.
  4. 4. blog platforms • chronological posts about anything • taggable and searchable • Really Simple Syndication (RSS) • every GCI user is an author • get the content you want, when you want
  5. 5. • A blog (an abridgment of the term web log) is a website, usually maintained by an individual, with regular entries of commentary, descriptions of events, or other material such as graphics or video. Entries are commonly displayed in reverse chronological order. quot;Blogquot; can also be used as a verb, meaning to maintain or add content to a blog.
  6. 6. why go social at GCI? • Improve communication among teams • Share knowledge past natural boundaries • Reduce knowledge transfers via email • Corporate knowledge base can supplant intranet • Watercooler in a virtual world
