You’ve got a friend in me

Ah, the perils of social networking.

What exactly did people do before Facebook? Much less Gmail (and GChat) oh, and AIM. These social networking/communication tools make my life *that* much easier to get in touch with people. So, piggy-backing off of this article from Joel Postman over at Talent Zoo, I’d like to share some advice on how exactly to use these communication channels effectively.

  • Connect with people you already know, be weary of “friending” strangers.
  • Be professional – even if it’s a personal networking site.
  • When sending messages, ask yourself, is this message about something that will be meaningful to the recipient?
  • When in doubt, don’t.
  • Focus on making the most of your contacts, not making the most contacts.
