A story from the Business Week reveals that IBM has been encouraging social networking among its employees with in-house versions of Web 2.0 hits such as Facebook and Twitter. A lot of companies are into corporate blogging already but social networking is another story.
Facebook, Friendster, LinkedIn, Twitter — Does your company encourage its employees to use Social Networking sites?
It may be a stretch but yesterday, I saw Petron XCS added me on MyBlogLog. I checked them out and looks like they’re also on Pownce, FriendFeed, BlogCatalog, Twitter and Delicious.
It’s a step forward but other companies are more careful. It might be good for Public Relations but might hit them in the productivity department. Transparency is also a double-edged sword — do you really want your boss being able to read your Twitter updates?
If your company allows you to use social networking site, which one would you think it would be? My bet is on LinkedIn — not to time consuming but very informative.
