Today everything and everyone is connected and crowd sourced. In fact, all social media, from blogs, to forums, and wikis have a profound impact on how people communicate, search for information, and make decisions. For vendors, social media is no longer an experiment or a moonlighting function. Social media is now an integral part of corporate communications.
SemiWiki has a strict NO SHILLS
policy. Vendor employees must properly identify themselves if they are going to answer questions, promote products, or say nice things about the company they work for. This level of security ensures the quality of the content.
While Google, Yahoo, Bing, and other search engines will continue to play an important role in social media, KNOWLEDGE SHARING
sites like SemiWiki are the new search. The role of user generated content has changed the way information is exchanged. SemiWiki brings technology and technologists closer together than ever before, providing in-demand content and facilitating peer-to-peer communications using Web 2.0 technologies.
SemiWiki Bloggers include industry professionals: Daniel Nenni, Paul McLellan, Daniel Payne, Eric Esteve, Don Dingee, Randy Smith, and Pawan Fangaria
