    Impromptu and informal discussions
    Getting to know your coworkers interests
    Office parties and lunches
    Organized team-building events
    Having fun together
  • Today people would say that social in the enterprise is:
  • Geographic separation – Multiple offices / Multiple time zones
    Cultural / language differences
    On-the-road / In-the-field
  • And many more
    But how do the features and capabilities integrate with the enterprise?
