Learning to Master LinkedIn

Hola Todos!

I was listening to the Social Media Examiner podcast the other day and learned a few new nuggets about LinkedIn.  Podcast host Michael Stelzner interviewed Stephanie Sammons who writes exclusively about LinkedIn for Social Media Examiner.  Stephanie dove into a number of excellent topics such as how to generate leads, the power of groups, optimizing your profile and some rules of thumb on whether to link to someone or not.

Of all the social networks, I use LinkedIn the most so any nuggets I can find go straight to my journal.

Something to check out today…

Topic Talk Thursday – Networking, Networking and More Networking

Hola Todos!

“How to network” is one of those topics to which I truly have a passion. Yesterday, I had Seton Hall Pirate Mentor Gabino Roche in class and we got into a solid “how to network” discussion.  Within the next 8 hours, I came across three solid networking articles that are loaded with nuggets.

The first is from Entrepreneur Magazine (click here) and it’s focus is on more than just being a networker, but also being a connector.  Second, is from the Harvard Business Review Blog (click here) and it details tips for introverts to network effectively.  Third, is from Fortune Magazine (click here); its excellent and features a lengthy book review from none other than the founder of Linkedin – Reid Hoffman.

Enjoy!

Networking and How to Fit in at Apple

Hola Todos!

On of the best Apple blogs I follow is Apple 2.0 by Philip Elmer-Dewitt.  In a recent post (click here), Fortune Magazine editor Adam Lashinsky was doing a presentation on his new book Inside Apple at the corporate HQ of Linkedin.  As part of the Q & A, a current Linkedin and former Apple employee, for the most part, confirmed Lashinsky’s assessment of Apple’s secretive corporate culture.
