Peter and a colleague set up the social bookmarking application in the Research and Development department using an Open Source tool. Peter wanted a better way to share important links connected with their research so he set up the social bookmarking application. Several people had used public social bookmarking tools such as del.icio.us

Introducting social media in organisations to improve the learning function is more difficult than you may think.

Joitske Hulsebosch

For some time now, I have an evaluation report of an organization that has experience with the introduction of social media (like wikis and blog) in the organization since 2009.
