Facebook’s Greatest Hits – five years of saying sorry
Yet another reason to jump to (the eagerly awaited and slightly overdue) Diaspora when it becomes available
I’m still playing with it so I can’t recommend it yet, but if you are looking for a Facebook style site that only allows access to people from your work (based on email e.g. @monash.edu) then have a look at Yammer.
“Yammer is revolutionizing internal corporate communications by bringing together all of a company’s employees inside a private and secure enterprise social network. Although Yammer is as easy to use as consumer products like Facebook or Twitter, it is enterprise-class software built from the ground up to drive business objectives.
Yammer is free for your whole company, enabling users to communicate, collaborate, and share more easily and efficiently than ever before. It reduces the need for meetings, increases communication across silos, surfaces pockets of expertise and connects remote workers.”
