The cover story to this month's issue of Financial Executive magazine is a must read for the social media illuminati: "Social Technology: The Next Frontier."
Written by Scott Klososky, founder and chairman of the board of Alkami Technology, and the author of three books on including Enterprise Social Technology, the article explores the explosion in use of social technologies such as twitter, facebook and linked in, and the potential implications for business.
FEI has also been making increasing use of social technology, including this blog (the FEI Financial Reporting Blog), our new sister blog authored by Tom Thompson of the Financial Executives Research Foundation, the FERF Research Blog, as well as our twitter accounts @feiblog and @feinews. We also have an FEI LinkedIn group. And be sure to check out FEI TV, FEI TV on Demand on youtube, and the FEI blog on youtube.
