Now here’s an interesting thing about a survey of UK government workers wanting to use social networking tools for their work (i.e. not playing Path Words on Facebook) but management just not “getting it”. The whole “social” networking terminology has been superseded surely. There are so many fantastic applications that can help you do your job more efficiently, effectively and cost-effectively thanks to these apps and platforms.
Access to my survey has been blocked by the web controls of many public libraries in the UK; I haven’t had that response from any of the many US respondents. This just adds more strength to my argument that professionals need to be accorded a level of respect according to their abilities and given the opportunity to communicate in these meaningful, interesting and often fruitful ways.
