Submitted by on December 17, 2012 – 10:44 amNo Comment

Despite the prominence of one of 2012’s biggest emerging trends – business social – many companies remain reticent in getting on board, viewing social tools as a burdensome ‘extra’ rather than ingraining them in practice for smoother, more efficient operations.
