SlideShare is a great platform for visual content and an amazing company: in just a few years, it has become the YouTube of presentations, one of the Top 150 sites in the world with an impressive 3 Billion views per month from 60 million unique visitors.

It should come as no surprise that a one-dimensional approach to network “deployment” will yield lackluster results. In the heyday of the Enterprise 2.0 movement, it was largely IT that introduced social networks to the workforce. The mistake that many customers made in those early days was viewing social networks as a technology platform vs. …

Don’t mistake cooperation for collaboration. While there may be a gift economy in cooperatively sharing via social media, you cannot engage in it unless you give gifts as well. For example, you would not show up at a potluck dinner with empty hands.
