Social Networking for Professionals
(Page 1 of 4 )
If youíve ever used the Internet at all, youíve probably seen the evidence of social networking. Itís everywhere you look online, with buzzwords that are becoming more and more part of popular discussion. Youíve probably heard of the popular social networking sites like MySpace and Facebook, but what do you know about the world of social networking for professionals?
Professional Social Networking
The Internet today is filled with opportunities and possibilities which make it possible for people to meet other people online. Itís the same idea whether itís a site meant for finding dates and mates, friends or even business contacts -- itís networking. With all social networking, the basic plan of attack is that you fill out a profile and allow others to find you. With professional social networking, the goal is for all that networking to produce usable business contacts and new career opportunities. In professional networking, the hope is that the contacts you make will help you further your own job goals. You arenít just meeting people with professional networking, youíre meeting people who can help you with your career.
Social networking is a proven formula, and thatís one of the reasons itís so popular. By filling out a pre-designed form, you can share information about yourself that others can easily search. People youíve met before and perhaps those you havenít can find you and then connect with you in some way, either by sending you a message or marking you as a contact through the networking site itself.
Highly-popular social networking does work. But what about career-themed professional social networking?
