Bill - great write up, and although I'm largely bullish on Facebook, in the face (no pun intended) of the privacy mishaps they've had, twice now (most recently "BeaconGate" just in the last month), I wouldn't recommend companies just leap into the void here. Caveat emptor... even in the face of companies like Alfresco, who are bringing my normal working world into the Facebook world, by providing back-end security around ECM.

It's still very early days for "enterprise Facebook" IMHO.

And Andrew's question on findability within intranets notwithstanding, I've worked with plenty of organizations who have great intranets and knowledge sharing facilities, and are easily able to point major revenue generation, cost reduction, process efficiencies, etc.. It's not the norm (although it's not THAT hard), but it's not as though all past investments in search, collaboration, etc. has been entirely wasted either.

All for experimentation at the front edge of this trend though - and my underlying point is that there are plenty of ways to move in this direction, without embracing Facebook as the next intranet platform.

Have you ever considered using Facebook as a project management portal? I found this post while Googling on the topic. For me it would be nice.. create individual facebook pages for each client then use apps as necessary (like 30boxes and others for calendar, messaging, milestones, updating, file sharing etc..). Q: Would it be secure? Q: Will facebook allow multiple accounts?

Very good article,

Surely the fact about the intranet information and the lack of Social Cohesion is very true ...

I'm currently looking for a tool to have a tool to create this social cohesion within the company so that people know eachother.

Any ideas are always welcome

Thanks for your comment. You could build mashups to enhance connections with a tool like Serena or look at tolls that focus on connections like Connectbeam or Cogenz.

As I mentioned before you could build mashups for this. There are also an increasing numbers of applications for connections such a Connectbeam, and collaboration such as Quickbase, Manymoon, and Qtask. Look at the AppGap blog were I have reviewed many of them. There is a few feature, Appopedia that allows you to browse through old reviews. Bill

Also, I too am getting the warning that yutaka is along with a few other similar ones about “Group”, “Link”, “Entry”, etc. It doesn’t seem to be breaking anything, just throwing a warning.
