Emerging Web 2.0 provides an insight into its application to enterprise 2.0 that is currently in an immature state. The effort to apply the successful Web 2.0 to Enterprise 2.0 requires careful analysis of similarity and dissimilarity of “state of the art” social systems such as Web 2.0 and proposed Enterprise 2.0. For this analysis, a knowledge-seeker/sharer paradigm is proposed from the assumption that these two parties may have different perceptions towards the social systems.
The paradigm consistently works as a baseline that comparison and contrast of Web 2.0 and Enterprise 2.0 are performed based on. This answer is organized as follows. First, two social systems are compared from knowledge-seekers‟ perspective, knowledge-sharers‟ perspective, and both parties‟ perspective by supporting with relevant literature. Second, two social systems are contrasted from knowledge seekers‟ perspective, knowledge sharers‟ perspective, and both parties‟ perspective by supporting with relevant literature. Third, meaningful implications are suggested from the analyses.
