          “Social Computing is not a fad. Nor is it something that will pass you or your company by. Gradually, Social
          Computing will impact almost every role, at every kind of company, in all parts of the world. Firms should
          approach Social Computing as an ongoing learning process, using some of the best practices of firms that
          have successfully taken the first steps.”1
