re: Radian6 Chief: Ignoring Social Could Bring 'CEO Spring'
Name it what you want, embracing social and making everyone post everything to a SharePoint site will not fix your management problems. At my work I constantly get pestered to post my latest gossip and pictures on a company wide social side, so much so that I added a local filter that deletes these messages right away. That site only includes bad mug shots and stuff about people that nobody should know about them. But sure, it makes people feel nice, when there is a company endorsed way to waste a lot of time. And at the same time IT is trying to one up the few that circumvent the latest Facebook filter.
Rather than embracing social, cut work hours, increase salaries, and add a few weeks vacation time so that your employees have time to be more social...I mean the real social, where you go outside and talk to real people.
