What drives Social Media Learning

It is the “intimacy” and “immediacy” aspects of social media that is prodding small, medium, and big enterprises to evaluate the option of implementing social learning solutions. Users are connected by more than one type of relationship today – as sweeping changes are dictating the world of business. Work is no longer confined to cubicles and office spaces. It has not only become seamless but also an integral part of our lives. That’s what the smart technologies have managed to do.
