Abstract
With the advent of on-line social and collaborative technologies, our ability to connect and the way we communicate with one another have changed dramatically. Social networking platforms that allow communities to form virtually have been quickly adopted in the recreational and business worlds. They are a powerful means for communicating and for finding and linking with new as well as existing connections. In defence and security organizations teams are often not co-located. Virtual social networking might be a valuable tool for finding expertise and team members with whom to share information. This document reports on the findings from a preliminary study that examined the requirements for enterprise virtual social networking collaborative technologies within the Canadian Forces. A number of military communities participated in the study and the findings overall provide strong evidence of a broad requirement for this kind of technology that generalizes across the organization as a whole.
