Abstract
A new class of internet-enabled software applications, called Social Networking, has gained prominence in recent years. Defence Research and Development Canada – Atlantic (DRDC Atlantic) is investigating the potential for these tools to benefit the Canadian Forces (CF) through improved networking, information sharing, and expertise location. They have developed a research program to investigate the benefits of social networking tools in the context of military interoperability. This report deals with the work from the second year of this program, in which, a questionnaire on social networking was designed and deployed. The results indicate that the Training Development Officer (TDO) community has strong potential as a test community for the experimental phase of this research, and have led to a number of recommendations about the types of social computing support that could be relevant for this community.
