If you read my April 2012 blogs about “Making Microsoft Social” (read part 1 and part 2), then you know that my IT colleagues and I are focused on connecting Microsoft employees, their insights, and information. We’ve seen that enterprise social tools can have a positive impact. So you can imagine how this focus became more complex on June 25, 2012. I think this Tweet of mine summarizes it best.
