The Social Media Revolution is upon us:
* 80% of companies use LinkedIn as the primary tool to find new employees
* If Facebook were a country, it would be the world's 4th largest.
* 96% of Generation Y uses some form of Social Media
Instant Messaging (IM) is also growing in popularity with both corporate and consumer users, it is estimated there will be nearly 2.4 billion IM accounts worldwide in 2010, growing to just over 3.5 billion by 2014. These communications will be subject to the same retention regulations as email and companies to prepare for this.
If both Google and the Library of Congress have decided to archive EVERY TWEET (all 11 Billion of them) since the inception of Twitter in March of 2006, don't you think your company should archive them as well? Check out the Webinar: Hosted Archiving Solutions for IM, Texts and Tweets to learn how to integrate these communications into your data archiving strategy.
