Harvard on social networking

I spotted a couple of interesting perspectives on social media today on the Harvard Business website & blog. Charlene Li, Vice President at Forrester Research, feels corporations should embrance sites like Facebook, whilst Tom Davenport, President’s Chair in Information Tecnhology and Management at Babson College, is a little more sceptical. You can check out their views for and against here. These articles aren’t  particuarly ground breaking, but they do provide a good introduction to the debate and capture well the two sides of the argument.  Personally, I’m with Charlene on this.
