Social media has become a fixture in many of our lives. For proof, look no further than the more than 1 billion active Facebook users, 72 hours of video uploaded to YouTube every single minute and 175 million professionals on LinkedIn.
How can the enterprise and Chief Learning Officers harness the collaborative and interactive nature of these platforms for learning? It's not as simple as plugging a social tool into a corporate Learning Management System (LMS).

The sum will always be greater than the parts when it comes to social technologies, because each of the pieces works together to create a unique learning environment.
