Read many articles this weekend on Social networking, social media, Knowledge management and on and on…. Interesting take by different people. Seems like many people still don’t know how to make this work. I think associations are the best place to use social media due to the nature of associations. What we do is help members network and learn about the industry. Social media allows us to use the internet to help the members get qualified information that they need and a place to have discussions that are protected. many companies are starting to block Facebook, myspace and other open platforms. Companies are more likely to allow their staff goto a secure site that protects their network.
