Enabling Conversations

Beth Kanter makes a useful distinction between the (a) use of social media to enable conversations and (b) the use of social media to support communities. (a) does not equal (b), although I suppose it could be used as a preliminary stage. Communities may be more likely to surface if the environment is inherently collaborative and open.
