Evolution of Social Networks into Virtual Organizations
Monthly Event - First Monday of every month
Although modern social networks such as Facebook, LinkedIn, and XING are enjoying a great deal of success these days due to their popularity with--and wild embrace by--today's youth and the business community, their roots can be directly traced to Classmates.com and SixDegrees.com, both of which were formed in 1995 and 1997 respectively. In other words, it took over 18 years for modern social networks to finally reach their peak--become ascendant--instead of some spontaneous explosion in popularity. Therefore, contrary to the idea that this is some sort of new phenomena, this ascendant position most resembles the supernova stage of social networks and the beginning or emergence of a new phenomena.
The question now before us is: What is this new phenomena and where do we go from here?
During this session, we will make a serious effort at examining this new phenomena, how it is currently being manifested in the marketplace and on the Web in general, the short- and long-term implications for all organizations who want to remain or become viable players on the Web, as well as the importance of timing and execution. And, last but not least, we'll indulge our senses and take a futuristic look at where we are headed.
This lively, engaging, futuristic and very interactive 2-hour session with Prof. Pierre Coupet and other attendees is designed to excite your imagination and give you the sort of wake-up call we all need from time to time in order to remain relevant.
