New Study on Organizational Use of Social Media

The Ragan video featuring Mayo Clinic, which I described in the last post, is well timed.  Earlier this week, Cisco announced the findings of a study on social networking and its adoption in the enterprise.  Based on interviews with more than 100 companies , the study explores the primary tools being used, which areas of business are adopting them and how they’re putting them to use, and some of the challenges that are arising.

One of the lead researchers, Neil Hair of the Rochester Institute of Technology, discusses two of the study’s most interesting findings:  the proliferation of social media tools to new areas of the business and the growing need for governance models.  Both are issues facing the modern employer.
