Using Twitter and Other Social Networks for Low-Cost Collaboration

There are plenty of corporate-ready tools for communication and collaboration out there, but you may be able to improve the way your employees collaborate just by using social networks they’re already familiar with.

Michael Klynstra of custom software development firm Geneca notes a number of ways that popular social media platforms can be used to improve collaboration in small businesses.

  • Twitter could be used with dedicated accounts, protected tweets and hashtags specific to your business projects.
  • Instead of Facebook in the office, have your employees sign up for Yammer accounts and create groups to get people collaborating.
  • Set up a wiki as a shared notebook.
  • And use video services like Vimeo and YouTube to add a more personal touch to communications. But limit access, of course.

sadly none of these networks are really that secure so a big risk for the businesses that use them in the way suggested.
