And there’s the professional anti-advisers: Many companies are thinking about how they can take advantage of social-networking technology, but analysts at Gartner are warning against getting caught up in the hype.

The article says ” the Gartner report says the hype around social networking doesn’t necessarily mean it’s a mature enough technology to make it a critical business requirement. . . There is also little evidence that social networking will be as beneficial for businesses as other Web-based communications technology, such as instant messaging.”

Beneficial for businesses? What if it’s seen as detrimental? Either way, hiding in the bushes and watching things happen is hardly the appropriate reaction!

So I’m wondering . . . what percent of your employees do you want representing your company form home or from work without a company-wide interaction strategy in place?

And what is instant messaging? I haven’t heard that term since right after I donated my 8-track tape collection to the library.
