Use of Social Media to enhance collaboration, marketing and learning

Rising popularity of social software (aka Web 2.0) has lead to an exponential growth of user-generated content (UGC).  Prima facie, such a dramatic increase in the amount of information will lead to further information overload and complicate the task of obtaining useful insight and knowledge . Nevertheless, a positive result can be obtained if available tools and content are leveraged appropriately and especially among trusted networks. This talk will outline new developments in the field and showcase the results of several prototypes.
