Social business is no longer a nice to have, but now a business imperative to improve customer engagement, build loyal partner networks, and improve internal collaboration. All of the most popular web sites on the Internet today — meaning the most visited and most engaging — are either social networks or online communities. It is now a leading trend that these social elements take place within a company or organisations own online space, providing a number of user and stakeholder benefits.

  • Key components and best practices in building communities of value
