re: Will Google, Facebook Launch Business Social Networks?
It makes total sense that Google would provide an internal social network, given the potential for integration with Google Apps, Google Analytics, Gmail, and so on. I wonder what it would have meant for Google+ had Google positioned it as an internal tool from the very beginning.

I agree that this will happen, especially on the Google side. Facebook remains to be seen as they would have to provide better privacy controls and better data control for business then they do for consumers.
