Interesting read Deirdre! Guess what - this is exactly what I do at IBM. In addition to what you mentioned, I try to engage members in the community by channelizing the conversations otherwise taking place in mailboxes.

Employees may spend hours on FB but never login to internal communities as they don’t want to change and then complain about lack of time. However those who realize the value of it, take out time every day to spend some thought in the communities.
