Share information and know-how using a social network on your business intranet. A place where employees can interact and share information on their roles and projects within your company.

Enable your association members to interact and share news about their profession or common interest. Use a social network as an equipment exchange or for recruitment. You can brand the site to your organization's look-and-feel.

Or you can build a niche social networking site, fan sites or dating site to collect memberships and generate advertising revenue.
