THE IT CORNER: Linking Up to LinkedIn

By Nhat Pham
Technology Chairperson

Nhat answers the question about LinkedIn - a Social networking Platform - and one NSA-Virginia members can connect to. Why should I use it?

"This initial roll out features productivity applications that range from gathering information that professionals around you are generating to enhancing your abilities to collaborate and communicate more effectively," Reid Hoffman, chairman and president of products at LinkedIn wrote in a blog. "You'll be able to work much more closely with your contacts on LinkedIn with tools such as file sharing, project management, business trips and many more."

You will be able to set public and private controls as well as being notified when information is pulled or shared. These new applications will allow users to stay nimble, competitive and in-the-know for this ever-changing business climate.

Many of my clients use LinkedIn to stay in touch with former clients & colleagues; get referrals & introductions; and add value as experts.

Still wondering why Linkedin? Why should Social Media be part of my plan? Who is using it ?

SUCCESSWERKS is offering a Social Media Crash Course WERKShop on November 12 or 13th. NSA members get in for $35 instead of $48 (or $58 at the door) by using promo code NSA1108.
