Social media for project managers

On the 10th of June 2010 the APM Women in Project Management SIG held a telephone conference titled Social media for project managers that was hosted by Elizabeth Harrin. The well attended session looked at the theory and practice of using social media tools to get things done in business. Is it hype or do these tools actually work? And how do you get started with a project-based social media initiative in your own company?
