More and more companies are implementing social software for employee use, and many more that aren’t find that employees are taking advantage of services that exist outside the firewall in order to do their work more collaboratively.
One of the first books to appear on this subject is Enterprise 2.0: How Social Software Will Change the Future of Work, by Niall Cook of Hill & Knowlton, the global PR agency.
In this FIR Interview, Niall provides an overview of the book and explores some of the issues arising from integrating social media into an organization.
Niall has arranged a 20% discount code on the book for FIR listeners. Visit the Enterprise 2.0 site and use the discount code G8AQL20.

Interesting podcast. I’m already curious to read the book. I think that Niall has made an important step in educating business people about Enterprise 2.0. It’s strange that we don’t have a book on Enterprise 2.0 from Andrew McAfee yet. His blog makes a great reading though. He already has many followers, like Andrew Filev of Wrike, for example, who writes the Project Management 2.0 blog.
Thanks Alice. I agree with you about Andrew McAfee – he was the first to publish his thoughts in this field and no doubt has much more to say.
