Social Networking

Did you see the potential out there for social
networking but so far it has had limited benefits
for you?  I have.

Two recent articles talk about growing benefits
for specific groups.  A new software platform
Lotus Connections is expected to connect
employees in corporations in a “virtual world” 
to exchange information and ideas to improve
productivity.   Laurie J. Flynn,
NYTimes.com, “IBM to introduce workers
networking software”.

Also, “Google” lotus connections.  It may be
an exension of the former product Lotus Notes
with updated components– blogs, bookmarking,
profiles and communities.

Contrasting in-company networking is another
article that interested me by Kristi Essick on
networks helping mid career people find new
positions. 
Please read the article for some details.

But connecting to the sites may prove more revealing–
