As you arrive @jiveworld, you may have noticed that some of our tweets and blogposts featured #makemagichappen.  When you visit the Social Edge JiveWorld booth (#G1), you will also see that #makemagichappen is a big part of our design theme, headlined by our magic playing cards featuring Jive community tips. So what’s the story here?

At Social Edge we’ve helped over 100 firms and organizations grow their Jive communities into thriving workspaces that are integral to their social business success. In fact, if you stop by either of our Demo Theater sessions at Jive World this year (Wednesday, 10/22 at 5:30 pm, and on Thursday, 10/23 at 12:30 pm) you’ll hear a few of those stories. But when we talk about #makemagichappen it’s not just the skills and expertise that all Social Edgers possess when it comes to Jive — it’s also about setting the foundation for an organic and authentic community that creates “magic” through the participants and members of its community. #Makemagichappen is a call to businesses, community managers and end users to use Jive in order to capture innovative ideas and build connections and bridges between people and business functions that rarely interacted previously. It’s also about embracing the changes that occur through Jive, including the magic of transparency and knowledge sharing.

There are a number of things we’re looking forward to at Jive World this year; new product information, meeting up with colleagues and sharing best practices. Whether you use Jive for an internal or external community, we always look forward to helping our clients discover the magic within their own organization.
