    • Web applications with external database: WordPress, Drupal
    • Hosted Solutions: Blogger, MySpace
    • Corporate blogging encouraged on open platforms: IBM employees use Movable Type, WordPress, and many others
    How does it work?
  • 10.
    • Advantages
    • Collaboration & hierarchical “tagging” structure
    • Community formation, two-way connection
    • More personalized than marketing
    • Low cost or free in many cases, no training required
    • Faster communication than traditional methods
    Different from existing technology?
    • Disadvantages
    • Easy access to information about people, privacy concerns
    • Leaking of internal corporate information might have very damaging results for business operations
    • While “tagging” and additional meta-data help structure the data (e.g. for data mining), it is still largely unstructured
  • 11. Benefits
    • Blogs are more personal, IBM viewers are more comfortable with the information they receive from employees and feel it is more reliable and personal.
    • Used INTERNALLY to enhance the communication and culture in corporation
    • Used EXTERNALLY for marketing, branding or PR
  • 12. Risk/Cost
    • information released is not filtered before posting potential leak out of company secrets, get company is legal issues and give company wrong image
    • loss of employment or other consequences when there’s a violation of info posted on company websites
