Collaboration networks, such as Slack, Yammer, and Chatter, create important digital workspaces, where employees can communicate with each other, share ideas, share code, manage projects, and sustain long-lived conversation threads. Slack, which started a platform for development teams, now has 8 million active users, including 3 million in the enterprise –and is being adopted by many other departments including marketing, sales, HR, and partner channels.
