As more companies begin to embrace social media it is predicted by Gartner that by 2014, social networking services will replace e-mail as the primary vehicle for interpersonal communications for 20 percent of business users and by 2012 50% of companies will benefit from the use of micro-blogging.
In our experience there are a number of benefits that having a social intranet can bring to an company such as; enhanced employee engagement, faster decision making, improved knowledge sharing from all levels and departments to help breakdown company silos, increased innovation, which in turn leads to greater satisfaction in the workplace and this filters through to the customer experience.
Social intranets also need the intelligence layer that Interact Intranet offers to ensure that the right content is pushed to individual users so that they keep commenting and collaborating. By pushing the right articles, forums, blogs to users you have a much better chance of your intranet being a success.
