While there are known favorites, success stories and both public domain and made-for-business networks out there o’plenty, adoption of social networks as fundamental ways of doing business is slow to come.

Some early predictions were that “intranet 2.0” would overtake tradiitonal methods of collaborating for most organizations by 2008. http://www.prescientdigital.com/articles/intranet-articles/intranet-2-0-social-media-adoption

Can we tease apart the elements that cause this slow uptake of what promised to be the ultimate silo buster, productivity enhancer and shared object holder? New programs like slack https://slack.com/ are gaining steam by aggregating common services… what other keys are there?

Q4. What might critical success factors be of enabling tools for productivity?
