Social Media and the New Year

In the last decade we've seen a great change in communication caused by the Internet. It's changed how we send out information, how we get information and how we deal with information.

Social media and social networking which are still in their infancy have had a profound effect on how people communicate and relate to teach other. Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn are the three top social networks and LinkedIn is the one that is used solely for business.

Think about the reasons that you either use LinkedIn or will be using LinkedIn.

Hunt for a job.

Look up profiles to find out information about people.

Search for people you've lost contact with.

Use the Q & A for expertise or fun.

Join groups for information or networking.

Use the company profiles to find out more about a company.

Link yourself to people across the world.

These are a few of the ways LinkedIn can work for you.
