Benioff monitors worker communications | ZDNet UK

Benioff monitors worker communications | ZDNet UK – This story caught my eye because it is referring to Marc Benioff, the CEO of, that has recently rolled out Chatter, an internal social networking application.

There’s a key difference between monitoring what employees voluntarily post on an internal social network and what they write in e-mails to each other (understanding that both forms of communication can be monitored by the employer). In my own experience I have learned an incredible amount of helpful information about what people are applying their talent to in the use of an internal social network. If anyone reading this is using an internal social network where they work, please post in the comments.
