A recent research from Deloitte – see chart – gives us a clear signal that Enterprise 2.0 is making progress in our 2009 corporate world. As expected, this social transformation is coming from the people getting self-organized rather than from the top, as anticipated in the very good book Here Comes Everybody: The Power of Organizing Without Organizations.
As a matter of fact, 55% executives reveal that their company do not have an official policy for social networks. They’d better have one because it’s easy to damage a company’s reputation on social media as nearly 75% employees agrees.
There is also a risk for employees to expose their profile on social media as it can impact their reputation in their job context in a negative way. We need to address these privacy issues over time, but for now just beware to separate what your “friends” see from what the world can see.
