Social Networking at BT

In the past many companies tried Yellow Pages to help employees find other relevant employees to be more productive and effective. Of course, on the Internet, we now have social network tools that help us connect to relevant people from all over the world. Some companies are starting to apply this inside the organization. BT is one of them. They just released their social networking tooling. Very interesting! They "easily" built in on BEA AquaLogic. I've heard of other large companies working with PeopleAggregator, but I haven't heard what their experiences are.
What I was wondering is this: employees can mention their skills; do other employees also get to rate their skills? And what is the incentive to keep your profile up-to-date (- which was a big problem with Yellow Pages)?
