I read a lot. And believe it or not, it’s not all about social media and risk! But a lot of it is. Even within that niche genre, I collect a lot of links from around the web. I can’t possibly dedicate a post to each, so going forward—and schedule permitting—I’m going to post a “round up” of various links and tweets I find. . . probably on Fridays.
If you find any of these links interesting, please let me know in the comments or by contacting me privately. If you’d like to find more information or similar articles, let me know, and I’ll try to help.
Articles and blogs (not necessarily published in the last week)
Research on Tweeting Inside and Outside the Enterprise – A summary of a study on microblog usage inside and outside the workplace. “In both settings, posts that provided information or were directed to others were more common than posts on status. Within these categories, it was more frequent to provide information externally than internally but more common to ask questions either through broadcast or directed posts internally than externally.”
Half of social networkers post risky information, study finds – Consumer Reports notes that “52% of adults who use social networks, such as Facebook, MySpace and Twitter, have posted personal information like their full birth dates and other revealing facts that criminals could use to victimize them.” I can see the need forming for a spin-off of enterprise risk management: “personal risk management.” Even the acronym PRM is catchy.
The Two-Year Lag from Web 2.0 to Enterprise 2.0 – A very interesting piece that explores the length of time it takes for Web 2.0 tools to go from consumer adoption to enterprise adoption.
E2.0 evangelists : the Revolutionaries and the Evolutionaries – An interesting attempt to group Enterprise 2.0 advocates into two distinct personality types and the effect of each on gaining management approval.
