The end of crowdsourcing, long live crowdsourcing
Digiday
It might sound strange coming from the founder of an agency built on crowdsourcing, but we've reached the end of the initial phase of crowdsourcing.

In the industrial manufacturing space, this doesn't happen often enough.

What is the big deal about the modern social business and social collaboration platforms?
WendySoucie's insight:

One of the better pieces I have read that points out what you really need for your goals in build a community collaboration platform : connect people to people, places to places, content to content. Then take it a step further and allow connectivity between all three important areas.

In summary, robust social business platforms excel in enabling three network layers: they connect people to people, content to content and places to places. The best ones go one step beyond and treat all 3 constructs as nodes, effectively connecting people, content and places with each other.
