Central Desktop’s greatest blog hits of 2012
We’ve posted a lot of content in 2012: collaboration tips, social enterprise trends, expert advice for agencies and marketing departments, Central Desktop product updates, best practices and even the occasional superhero video.
We’re going to have even more to share in 2013 – but let’s not get ahead of ourselves. It’s that time of year to sit back and reflect on the best movies and music and memes and burritos that 2012 had to offer. And so, too, do we reflect on some of our best (and most-read) blog content – advice on breaking free from productivity shackles, insights on the shifting world of marketers and agencies and tips on making your collaboration solution stick.

One of my favorite lines from our Collabosphere user conference was “If you build it, they will ignore it” (thanks, Carl Frappaolo).

Carl’s session on building a collaborative culture is also well worth a listen.
