The adoption of social media by customers and employees is pushing companies to re-examine how they engage with these audiences -- and in particular, to decide how open and transparent they can and should be.

I believe that social networks will be like air. I’m not talking about social networking SITES like Facebook or MySpace. I’m talking about the relationships that each one of us has to the people who are important in our lives. I imagine a future where those connections will be anywhere and everywhere when and where you need them. And that they will be essential to our lives, like air. And without it in sufficient supply, we will feel not quite whole. We will look back in 5 years and think, wasn’t it quaint that we had to GO someplace to be social. So I believe that social networks will be like air – everywhere, and essential to your life.
