Social networks aren't just for home users to keep in touch with old acquaintances and to try and increase their friend-count like a top score, they can also be beneficial to IT pros. At least that's what HP is banking on, which will soon unveil its own social network aimed at the enterprise.
HP is calling it 48Upper, and as the manifesto reads, "We have lived with the stereotype of being introverted, pessimistic loners for too long."
Right now HP is getting 48Upper ready for beta testing. It will be delivered as a software-as-a-service (SaaS), giving subscribers the ability to control how technical information is shared, and whether or not to tag information as "public."
