The Problem Social Media: The value of social media –as formed today- stops at ‘telling people things’: ⇒ artiﬁcial one to many communication 96% of users never go back to a Facebook page they like ⇒ content clutter ⇒ lack of control ⇒ lack of privacy ⇒ user=spectator with no power to ACT Enterprise Social Networks: Despite the privacy beneﬁt, it is a closed doors network: ⇒ Limited to a company’s employees, approved partners and collaborators only ⇒ Excludes the end-user from the discussion; whether that’s a customer, a citizen or a consumer ⇒ Prevents any group or individual from creating a community around anything that interests them due to their high prices and lack of ﬂexibility
