Many say this is the year social media broke into the mainstream, and I was one of many who jumped on board with LinkedIn the first of this year, then Plaxo a short time later, Facebook some months later, and most recently Twitter, which is basically a micro-blog limited to 140 characters per post.
Both LinkedIn and Plaxo are professional social networks, while Facebook is a more traditional social medium of over 120 million members. Although many say Twitter is for entertaining, engaging or educating, I’ve been using it strictly to inform and educate.
If you’re looking to learn more about social media, join a social media, or further your social networking, here’s a link to an article I read – “Nine ways to get involved in social media” – that you may find helpful, and here’s another helpful article - “10 Facebook tips” – if you’re looking for some tips to assist you with Facebook.
