Hi there,

I am pulling this old thread to get some specific discussion along
social networking inside organizations. There is a lot of buzz out
there. MicroSoft SharePoint's new Beta has a good tool built in.

However, I am not sure in what context is it used inside
organizations. Do you guys have any stories to share? What points you
bring to address its "must have" case (as against "good to have").

I look at Social Networks inside enterprise along two dimentions --
talent management (identifying/retaining) and sales force
infrastructure (for operational efficencies). Any thought?

Thanks,
Prady
