  • @sbg00sbg Social Networking in the enterprise is about delivering measurable value to the organisation. The object isn't to get the highest number its to get a ratio that demonstrates that the system is providing some value to those who are using the tools, including contributors and consumers. It also has to make sense.

    If I were deploying IBM SN tools to an organisation of 10,000 users and only one person was contributing but 10,000 were getting benefit then that might be enough to justify the SN investment. Although in reality further investigation would be carried as to why this was the case.

    The RoC is the most basic 'idea' in regards to measuring value - there are others. I think it is a good starting point but it is a long way away from a unified theory of SN value creation!

    Please keep commenting and thinking about this subject area with a view to refine and extend the subject of measuring the value of SN. Note that if we want enterprises to use/buy SN tools then we have to give them more than 'you just have to get it' as the reason.

  • Hi Sparkbouy,
    Thanks for your feedback Re: Community Equity
    Quote
    'm a bit concerned about the model you are using to calculate return on contribution as it seems to me as though it is supportive of a 'banking' model of knowledge (or shall I say information transition), which is not what social networking is about. If the objective is to get a higher number, then that would mean that less contributors and more readers would be an ideal model, which goes against the principles of social networking. I'm most probably missing something and would be glad for you to point it out to me.'
    Our goal is to build a social VALUE system (not a frequent flyer program model) were the system automatically evaluates Contribution (input) Participation (feedback/reuse) Value of people,content and communities
    So we honor not just contribution but also participation. As example - usually 10-15% of a community regularly contribute but the others are usually 'just consuming' content. That's fine as long a consumer provides feedback trough rating/comments etc. Also our Community Equity services have some pattern matching logic e.g. a user can contribute 100s of documents but its only counts when some else has viewed/downloaded it.
    Summary our goal is to build a qualitative value driven system versus quantitative ..
    or as one of our CTO's recently sad :
    'I rather prefer to have on artifact been downloaded 100 times then 100 artifacts once '
    :-)
