Social networks are no longer informal but have become part of the prescribed network system of organizations. Understanding the nuances of social media in the twenty-first century is as or more significant than comprehending the chain of command or bureaucracy theories. Requires students to examine their own organizations in terms of the intelligent use of communication technology for information management and to develop a plan for improving communication in their organizations by incorporating social networks with conventional networks for the purposes of efficient information management.
