However, social media channels are clearly here to stay. With more businesses looking to understand and utilize these platforms to engage employees and customers in ways that drive innovation, the real danger is for those who do not adopt. There are dozens of applications beyond Facebook, YouTube and Twitter that are being successfully deployed to enable collaborative innovation processes.
