2 | Social Networks Can Work Hard Too Enterprise social networks will emerge within the walls of major global corporations to facilitate collaboration, reputation building, and knowledge transfer. Enterprise social network users will be able to create a sophisticated “reputation” system through which users can post rich profiles and peers can rate one another. Teams will be able to create smaller sub-networks and groups for specific projects and ideas. Teams will be able to grow organically based on interest, and teams will be able to communicate with one another without interrupting the workflow. Knowledge management will become simpler as users create wikis and internal encyclopedias and freely contribute to and grow them over time. “Experts” on a particular topic can be easily identified based on their contributions to these knowledge-systems.
