Design Considerations For Enterprise Social Networks

Collaborative Thinking

While enterprise social networking has been covered extensively in the media and by IT analyst firms, one of the least discussed aspects of the topic has been the issue of design and the potential impact of design on employee adoption of such tools and applications. At the June Enterprise 2.0 Instead, the information was presented at a holistic and inter-disciplinary level, covering a collection of related issues: Affordance-centered design.

Re-Thinking Follow Models Within The Enterprise

Collaborative Thinking

Past incarnations however were perhaps so subtle and housed within a particular use case scenario or application context, that we never really thought about how the model could be leveraged in a very broad and compelling manner. Social network sites ( defined by boyd and Ellison for consumer sites in 2007 and extended by myself (while at Burton Group) to apply to enterprise sites in 2008 ), were instrumental in making follow models more prominent.

Here is the first in a series of session notes for  KM World 2010  and  Enterprise Search Summit 2010. I attended the workshop, Designing Social Search in the Enterprise.
