Risky Business

25 Aug

Hello readers! Today I’m going to blog about the risks and benefits of implementing Enterprise 2.0 into your business. Since Enterprise 2.0 has become integrated in most peoples daily lives through the forms of social media such as Facebook, Tumblr, and Twitter, it is becoming increasingly important for a business to make the decision of whether or not they would like to integrate Social media and web 2.0 strategies into their business practices.

Since it hasn’t been completely adopted by businesses one could assume that their are some risks attached when implementing the software. When setting up an e-commerce business there are always going to be risks. These can include risks to the business security, and risks to the business’s public image.

This includes significant risks to the security of the business, with the possibility that employees, even if they are bound by contract, will leak confidential business information to the public through the means of Facebook, Twitter, and potentially other social media sources.

Even though there are some significant risks in setting up an e-commerce business, it does not come without having some strong benefits such as attracting attention towards your business as a contributor to the community, and with enough popularity it becomes a form of advertising and reputation that is inherently free, in comparison to traditional methods.

It is incredibly important in this day and age for a business to have control over it’s image through social media, and it is becoming more and more common for a business or corporation to have social media outlets through Twitter, and Facebook to ensure that their image is positive, and that they can continue to monitor and improve upon their current image,
