Human resource and knowledge managers line managers and team leaders are ultimately responsible for the effective and efficient operation of the organization.

These responsibilities can only be born if the these managers have the appropriate knowledge in their respective fields of expertise and know how to share this knowledge sustainable among each other and have an effective awareness of the need for a knowledge sharing network within the organization. In this study we develop a social media based knowledge management system for a company which operates in the telecommunications market serving a special niche market. Managers from similar disciplines contribute to the project in sharing their knowledge on social media mainly Google Plus. We develop structures for a sustainable knowledge management environment for companies in the example of managers all of who have expertise in management or information technology. Applying social media for managing knowledge could turn these managers into knowledge leaders in their organizations.
