Portals and KM

Now with the increasing use of social media, asynchronous transparent conversations are on the increase. Each new advance in communication and learning technology has expanded the possibilities for communication, knowledge capture, and distribution. In each case it took a while to understand the possibilities and the implications. Much of sensitive communication with most enterprises occurs through direct person-to-person conversations, or at least through emails.
