Social Business = Social Bonding

Found at Social Business = Social Bonding.

Social business activities can pay off in various ways. Earlier this year, MIT Sloan Management Review and Deloitte highlighted benefits related to better market intelligence, faster customer service as well as improvements to internal operations, such as finding expertise, distributing knowledge and more effective project collaboration. (See our 2012 Special ReportSocial Business: What Are Companies Really Doing?)

My point of view: bonding may also impact encounters and pseudo-relationships. Not limited to relationships!

Watching and listening: Race Against the Machine: A Conversation with Andrew McAfee (no typo)

Digital technologies are rapidly encroaching on skills that used to belong to humans alone. This phenomenon is broad and deep and has profound economic implications. Many of these implications are positive; digital innovation increases productivity, reduces prices, and grows the overall economic pie. But digital innovation has also changed how the economic pie is distributed, and here the news is not good for the median worker. As technology races ahead, it can leave many people behind. Workers whose skills have been mastered by computers have less to offer the job market and see their wages and prospects shrink. Entrepreneurial business models, new organizational structures, and different institutions are needed to ensure that the average worker is not left behind by cutting-edge machines.

McAfee brings together a range of statistics, examples, and arguments to show that technological progress is accelerating, and that this trend has deep consequences for skills, wages, and jobs. He makes the case that employment prospects are grim for many people today, not because technology has stagnated, but instead because we humans and our organizations aren’t keeping up.
