Intranet 2.0 tools explode but Social Intranet still rare

by Rob Lewis | Culture

The 2010 Intranet 2.0 Global Study found that 87% of organizations have at least one social media tool on the intranet.

Not surprisingly blogs are the most popular tool and are present on 53% of intranets of all sizes. However they're only deployed enterprise wide (available to all employees to read or write) on 18% of intranets.

The 2010 study by Prescient Digital Media contains the most current and comprehensive intranet data from more than 525 participants in organizations of all sizes from across the globe. The key findings of the study were:

  • 52% have intranet discussion forums (a 13% increase from last year's survey); 23% enterprise use; 9% have no plans or interest
  • 51% have intranet instant messaging (an 11% increase from last year's survey); 34% enterprise use; 19% have no plans or interest
  • 49% have intranet wikis (a 4% increase from last year's survey); 17% enterprise deployment; 11% have no plans or interest
  • 53% of organizations that have social media tools on their intranet use Microsoft SharePoint

Looks like intranets could still get a whole lot more 'social' and Vancouver's ThoughtFarmer is here to help.

On October 28th they're hosting a Social Intranet Summit in Vancouver which includes a top-notch mix of cross-disciplinary intranet experts. Attendees will learn how real companies are using social intranets to transform collaboration and knowledge sharing through case studies presented by real organizations, like Oxfam America.
