IBM is proud to sponsor the 2011 IT Social Media Awards

The world now spends more than 110 billion minutes on social networks and blog sites per month. This equates to 22 percent of all time online or one in every 4.5 minutes.

IBM logoJust 10 years ago, there was another significant shift in the way people interacted with each other: the Web came to the workplace. From e-commerce and peer-to peer file sharing to the emergence of web-based solutions for financial, accounting, and supply chain systems, the web has become a serious business tool for organisations and industries of every kind. And the evolution continues.

Now social networking services are on track to replace email as the primary communications method for many business users in the next few years.

Learn more about this trend in a series of IBM thought leadership papers around how industry leading organisations are harnessing social media to drive real business results.
