We live in a world where many people use their social networks to communicate and where we have access to instantaneous global or local news. In the same way, businesses have started to use business networks to ensure that they can share the latest information immediately. Business networks allow companies to build bridges with existing and potential customers, partners, suppliers, and other stakeholders. Sharing a free flow of information allows businesses to gain insight and value from others though connections which would be difficult outside of the digital economy. Without the digital economy, building connections and keeping up the conversation and flow of information would lose momentum as by the time the information gets through; it would already be outdated. Businesses can share ideas but also react to offer the latest deals immediately through business networks, without missing out or waiting for next month’s newsletter to disseminate the details.
