Enterprise view of social media: Collaboration, Jetpacks and Ray Guns!


Published on

Despite the wondrousness of Facebook and LinkediIn, these social networks and other tools like Wikipedia, YouTube and Twitter are pretty much a matter of course for us as individual users. But enterprises find themselves in a quandary, mostly because of access and security issues that using an open tool like these would entail. In the past few years, we've seen the rise of another category or layer of social media tools the emulate social media for consumers but are attempting to bridge the gap, addressing the concerns of the enterprise.

Okay, so i'll be talking about Yammer, SharePoint, NewsGator, etc. The problem is that these are old as dirt! They are not nearly as advanced as what's out on the front lines now. how can I start interacting as effectively with my work colleagues as I can my friends on Facebook? When there is a layer of security, what can I do to ensure collaboration within the enterprise on work projects?
