Zuckerberg’s Stand on Information: Sharing is Caring

Saul Hansell recently posted on NY Times Bits blog that Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook, believes that internet users are becoming more prone to sharing information on what they’re doing, who their friends are, and what they look like over the web. Here’s “Zuckerberg’s Law”, as Saul calls it, in Mark’s own words:

“I would expect that next year, people will share twice as much information as they share this year, and next year, they will be sharing twice as much as they did the year before,” he said. “That means that people are using Facebook, and the applications and the ecosystem, more and more.”

Will teams across organizations innovate more efficiently if employers allow their workers to add social networking elements to their practices? How will the growing popularity of information sharing affect the innovation process?
