The Social Intranet Tipping Point
by Toby Ward - Two years ago, the social intranet did not exist. Social media tools on the intranet (intranet 2.0) have existed for a number of years, in fact, discussion groups and instant messaging first appeared on intranets in the late 1990s.
A typical social intranet home page may have:
A listing of the most recent blog posts
Recent wiki contribution
Most commented on stories / content (or most recent)
A tag cloud of the most hotly discussed topics
Multimedia including video and/or podcast
Twitter / Yammer or micro-blogging portlet (webpart)
Links to social media properties
Activity stream(s) of work colleagues / connections via social networking
The Social Intranet Tipping Point: incorporation of social media into the intranet home page. If you adopt social media, then adopt it whole-heartedly; don't hide your social media in far-flung corners of the intranet, integrate intranet 2.0 into your home page.
