I am a big fan of Elizabeth Harrin (author of the forthcoming Customer-Centric Project Management) and she has been one of the leading lights on the topic of social media for project management. You can download her 2011 Social Media in a Project Environment Survey Results from her website – here are some of the key highlights:
– 20% more people are using blogs for business use than in 2010;
– Over 90% of respondents use social media tools to stay in touch with colleagues;
– A quarter of respondents use social media tools for managing project teams;
– Over 75% of respondents feel that social media tools can, or do currently, improve the way they manage projects, but this is down from 83% last year.
