Social Computing Tools in Industry

Our recent discussion in CSE 252 was on integration of social computing tools in business. We discussed how much of an impact it can have on business performance. Our assignment was to write a 6-8 pages on researching social computing tools and its impact on our field of study and the profession I would be in. Essentially, I had write a paper on social computing tools used in software firm. Some examples of these tools include video conferencing, blogs, wikis, Twitter, internal social network, etc. From my research, I learned that it is predicted that business that use social media will have Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 61%. More importantly, it connects network of employers, partners, stockholders, and customers at a different level which can not be achieved with traditional workplace platform. In addition, it provides richer insight, enables knowledge sharing platform, and creates easier solution to problem solving.
