The never-ending debate about whether Facebook is good or evil grinds slowly on. Various news sites, including the Beeb, have swung the pendulum back towards social networking being 'a good thing' for businesses. Graham Jones gets it right again though - this isn't anything new!
"Let's get this right - social networking has been around since humans first started walking on the face of the planet."
As an interesting coincidence this comes out at the same time that LinkedIn and Huddle announce a link-up. At Plusnet we use LinkedIn for recruitment and business development. Pretty much all of our staff use Facebook on a daily basis too. We've also played around with Huddle before as it has some interesting similarities to our own Workplace system. Talking of Workplace, we've just been identified by Information Age, a US-based publication, as 'One of 10 outstanding Web 2.0 success stories'. Which is nice :-) Neil Armstrong Products Director, Plusnet
