Buildings are much more than steel, cement, sand and wood. They are not only known as homes, office or a community space, they show the symbol of modernity and progress. A recent market survey showed that by 2025, buildings will be the single largest consumer of energy. In today's world with the change in the ecosystem and also the market, your building need to be more cost-efficient, more value for the money, less polluting-more green and meet the occupants requirements. The challenges for achieving this are many. How do you manage them better and what do you need to know to manage them smarter.

This is my first blog. Was thinking of what to blog on. Then, was wondering why I need to blog? Got the answer that I need to be 'Online Social Human'. Man is a Social Animal, now its the era of becoming 'Online Social Animal'. Recently I was introduced to many tools available to make me "Socially Enabled", ofcouse in the internet world. Was trying to figure out how each of these tools can be leveraged by any person or company to advertise, socialize or market their resources including people. I mention people as they are the best asset for any company. Started to use some of the tools available for becoming 'Online Social Human', like Twitter, Facebook, Blogs etc. and realized how powerful these tools can be to promote your thoughts, ideas weather personal or professional and get the feedback immediately.
In today's world, the buzz word is 'Social', weather it is Social Computing, Social Networking, Social Marketing, Social Enablement, Social Media, Social Software, Social Business etc. There are pros and cons for each of these buzz words. In all the cases, its about how effective and efficiently you are capable of conveying the message across the board.
Each of the 'Social' feature have their own tools. It would be good if all these 'Social'ness come together on a single platform so that it would help in having the information at the tip of your fingers. Like integrating the Social Media tools to enable Business in Marketing and Networking.
