As a knowledge manager and a user of social media, I can appreciate the distinction that this article makes--if only to start a discussion between the appropriate roles each might play in an organization. We have had success in both structured and social formats, but we have also experienced deadwood, duplication, and dispersal in both due to the numerous personnel and purposes our organization has included in the creation and use of knowledge and information. It is the challenge of our organization to best use each location appropriately over time and as knowledge grows and matures, and we have the same issue with our personnel. Sharing is one thing, but we also have the challenges of individual preferences and also the priorities people bring to the creation, use, and maintenance of information. I will use this article as the basis of some brainstorming our organization will conduct in order to understand whether we are doing all that we can as best we can. Thanks for this insight.

Such a platform would thrive primarily on its ecosystem, enabling hundreds of different vendors and custom applications to easily plug into the backbone.
In such an environment, each marketing organization could weave together its own unique fabric of different components — a best-of-breed strategy, but one that could be more easily executed because the integration points in the backbone would be stable and standardized. Implement one integration to the backbone and gain loosely-coupled interoperability with everything else that’s connected to that backbone. Zapier is a terrific example of an early incarnation of such an approach.

In fact, one of the many fascinations of the 21st century is the arrival of computer - mediated communication (CMC). Several research studies support that CMC, in its synchronous manifestation, facilitates the acquisition of oral competence.
What’s the difference between the two? On the surface they sound very similar, particularly for someone who had had experience with knowledge management. Both involve people using technology to access information.
"I recently did a mindmap on my personal and professional connections (See below). I have to say that my past achievements were not products of just my hard work, ambition, and drive.
