Sharing of tacit knowledge is not without its own challenges. It is proposed here that in order to encourage tacit knowledge sharing, interpersonal trust and social networking must be present. These proposition were tested among ICT employees in Amman, Jordan. The data collected were analyzed using Pearson correlations and multiple regression, and the findings indicated that both interpersonal trust and social networking are important for tacit knowledge sharing to occur. These findings suggested that tacit knowledge sharing could only happen when there are trust between those who are involved, and that it happens they have are good at social networking.
