SOCIAL computing platforms like Facebook and MySpace have proven to be a hit with consumers but most businesses have not tapped on the opportunities presented by such Web 2.0 technologies.

A new website launched by AsiaOne will attempt to bridge this gap. Called AsiaOne Innovation, the portal aims to promote greater awareness of social computing tools and provide business owners with the know-how to use them to facilitate collaboration with different stakeholders.

Content for the new website is delivered in partnership with IBM Singapore over a three-month period. The portal will consolidate information from multiple sources into a single, comprehensive content repository on Web 2.0 topics.

'Social computing technologies are poised to change the way businesses are conducted, just like the way the Internet revolutionised businesses a decade ago. This partnership offers an opportunity for individuals and companies to understand and leverage on the potential of social computing for their businesses,' said Chris Tan, marketing manager of IBM Singapore.

Besides features and news articles, users can also expect videos and audio presentations on social computing on this website.

In addition, the site will host an online forum to encourage user discussion and AsiaOne Innovation surfers can also be kept abreast of events such as breakfast meetings with business leaders.
