Talk about how I didn’t “get” the Pinterest experience – and that I am not here hawking Pinterest – but want the audience to consider the Pinterest experience, and what makes it so powerful, so compelling, and why it is growing faster than either Facebook or Twitter grew at the same age
To make social work, we need to better understand what is happening across the platform, and have the ability to set guidelines and restrictions based on security and compliance requirements. Where are people collaborating? Who is (and isn't) participating? How much content is being shared? Where is it working, and where is it not? Why are some teams more successful than others? Where do tools make sense versus team culture? What can you do to support your Power Users?

Microsoft tells us to:
I would put them in this order or priority. You always begin with the people – if you don’t design your platform, your experience with the end users in mind, they simply won’t use it. And the most beautiful, technically accurate and robust solution in the world is still a waste of time and money if, in the end, end users reject it. But second then is process – your alignment with business processes. Its about recognizing the value of your social interactions to your business. And finally, there is your technology platform.
