I get asked this question a lot "Why can't I just use email instead of enterprise social networking?" This is often followed by "we have these great distribution lists..." etc

This is my simple explanation that sometimes works to convert emailers into enterprise social network evangelists, or at the very least, users.

Why can't i just use email instead of enterprise social networking?

  1. 1. Why don’t we just use email instead of enterprise social networking?
  2. 2. I get asked this a lot This is how I explain it
  3. 3. it starts with an idea shared with 5 people for comments
  4. 4. This generates 5new emails
  5. 5. 1 response from each team member
  6. 6. Generates 25 new emails
  7. 7. thats 5 new emails each person has to read
  8. 8. Thats just to get everyone’s first response this is not collaborating this is socialising an idea
  9. 9. collaboration noun 1. the action of working with someone to produce something. Definition
  10. 10. Collaboration is a fluid exchange of perspectives from a group of people to produce something
  11. 11. When everyone responds twice thats 50 new emails
  12. 12. When everyone responds 3 times thats 75 new emails
  13. 13. What if you add a 6th or 7th person? adding people exponentially increases the number of emails
  14. 14. you get the idea
  15. 15. email looks like this
  16. 16. enterprise social networking looks like this its linear it flows its easy to read
  17. 17. Moving from email to enterprise social networking
  18. 18. will increase your productivity by up to 25%
