Social Networking for Knowledge Sharing

All of you know the value of Facebook and Twitter these days. Have you ever thought of such social network within the organization where all can share their work related knowledge and also share personal feelings. It works wonderfully as it is not dependent on organizational hierarchy. Japanese enterprises have successfully done this. But, it works best with a few dedicated persons' voluntary contribution and the organization's moral support for such endeavor.

Conditions for Establishing a Social Knowledge Network within a Firm

In 'Handboek Communities (p. 46-52, in Dutch) a number of conditions for establishing a social knowledge network within a firm are presented that could be useful:
1. Have an open culture (be as transparent as possible and be honest about things you don't want to disclose)
2. Be prepared to share (start with giving in the conviction that you will eventually get back more from the community)
3. Management involvement (show it is important)
4. Be flexible (internet and audiences are unpredicable, so adapt your project continuously)
5. Accept and use critics (even when they seem/are unfair)
6. Be realistic (only a low percentage of people is willing to actively participate, but for them the fact that lots of passive followers are there is relevant. Take a long term view. Communities are not built overnight nor can you change your company quickly).
