What is The Social Intranet ?
"I define intranet as, 'an internal website that helps employees get things done'. What makes an intranet social is the addition of two very important elements; Authorship (the ability for everyone to create content) and Connections (the ability to see the people behind the content and connect with them in some meaningful way). These definitions were originally developed by ThoughtFarmer and I think they are spot on. " - Andy Jankowski
What is Enterprise Social Media ?
"Enterprise Social Media I define as social media being used holistically by employees, both for internal and external communications and collaboration, to engage with both other employees and with customers. A social intranet is by definition limited to employee to employee communication behind the firewall. Enterprise Social Media spans both internal and external and breaks down the barrier between employee and customer --- enabling social business" - Andy Jankowski
