An Enterprise View of Social Media, Collaboration, Jetpacks, and Ray Guns
Todd Nilson

About the Topic

For many business professionals, social media only extends as far as professional networking on LinkedIn and keeping track of friends and family on Facebook. But, social media is a rich category consisting of a broad array of tools that have been leveraged for enterprise users. These tools are in varying states of maturity and can be much more valuable than any science fiction future with ray guns, jetpacks, and trips to the moon! In this session, Todd will present a framework for understanding the many categories of social media tools, the difference between Web 2.0 and Enterprise 2.0 social media applications, how they are being leveraged by large enterprises to foster greater productivity and collaboration, and how these new and powerful tools will continue to impact the immediate future.
