Social Learning -- How Social is Your LMS?

With the all the hype and reality, it’s tough to know what you really need.  Here is my unsolicited advice; you should never buy a LMS for the social learning features unless you have a measurable social learning business plan.  If you can’t justify who would use it, why and the business impact –skip it for now.  Social learning is not going anywhere, let others bleed on the cutting edge.
