By now, you’ve probably heard a little about the latest report from HRxAnalysts. The 2012 Index of Social Technology in HR and Recruiting is a comprehensive look at the new technologies that are entering the organization in the 21st Century. While they are generally lumped together under the rubric of social media, a lot more is happening.
The report documents the 16 different kinds of social technology and their ultimate place in the various HR Silos. While the organizational focus seems to be on the control of these grassroots technologies, what’s really happening is pretty interesting. There is very little that is actually social about social technologies.
