Social Networks Go To Work

MSNBC reports in "Online Social Networks Go To Work" on the increased adoption of social networking tools for business networking, and includes brief interviews with several folks in the industry. A theme in all their responses: we need good filtering. Joi Ito hit the nail on the head:

I think email is broken in a serious way, and SNS is trying to address some of the issues associated with that breakdown. These networks may get it right and really change the way we do business, but we're still at the beginning of the development and evolution curve.

So, a while ago I bookmarked PeopleAggregator. I think it had some a nifty tool for analyzing AIM buddy lists. Or maybe I'm thinking of another site. Anyway, it's now doing something vaugely FOAF-like. There's kind of an explanation hiding in the privacy policy. Another one to keep an eye on.
