Enterprise Social Network or ESN is an internal business community of employees who are working in those enterprises or companies. You can also consider them to be social networking platforms but only for internal teams of organizations.
ESNs were popularized in recent years as a way to help reduce communication silos being created after the world was forced into remote work. It was obvious that most organizations were not prepared for a shift like that and had to counter remote work with a better online presence. A more prominent online presence lets you be more transparent with the rest of the team and reduces any friction that may have persisted.
