LinkedIn can be a real workhorse when it comes to our networking efforts. The potential benefits are huge, but filtering content can become a challenge. The good news is, like most networking sites, we have the ability to customize how we’d like to receive information from our connections. I’ve recorded a short video demonstrating how to change how you receive these notifications from LinkedIn. Let me know in the comments if this was helpful to you and if you’ve got other questions.

And, at what point, do real-time tools stop being new toys which only truly-geeky people use and start becoming so embedded into our everyday lives that we don’t really think about them, but can’t imagine living without them? While most of the conversation at LeWeb was fairly technical and focused on what’s ahead, such as exciting new applications and tech start-ups, I wondered what tools these uber-geeky folks are using day-to-day in their real lives which are simple enough for the rest of us non-geeks to use.

Use Social Media to Be Human: Tips from Michael Brito

We see them online on Facebook and Twitter, though we’re not always quite sure what they’re doing there. Are they there to sell products? Reply to customer complaints? Monitor our conversations? More importantly, if they are using the tools and platforms successfully, is there anything that those of us with small businesses can learn from them? Are the same strategies they’re using applicable to small businesses without the same brand recognition? Recently, at BlogWorld in Las Vegas, one of the nicest guys in Silicon Valley, Michael Brito , shared some of the principles he feels are central to effectively using social media for business. As Michael says, it is all about the people and the relationships, not the tools. It is critical to understand your audience – their needs and interests – in order to begin to communicate in a way which is meaningful and helpful to them. Credibility and trust are never built when shortcuts are taken and this isn’t given top priority. Your turn: Which brands or companies do you see “doing social media&# right?

How To: Enjoy SXSW (Without Being at SXSW)

Almost Savvy

In the real world, it may not be that big of a deal, to many in the tech, film or music worlds, it is a must place to be to see the latest and coolest things happening and mingle with those making it happen. While all the festivities take place in Austin, Texas from March 12 – 21, there should be quite a bit of content you can enjoy from the comfort of your own home (or office…just don’t tell the boss you heard it from me). The festival has three primary tracks: Interactive (Tech/Social Media): March 12- 16 Film: March 12 – 20 Music: March 17 – 21 I’ll be attending Interactive events and will be blogging one of them (my blog posts will end up on the SXSW site, not here). If you happen to be at the Microsoft BizSpark Accelerator event on Monday, be sure to stop by and say hello. This event will be streamed live online for those who’d like to watch. I’ll be sure to post a link on Twitter and to the AlmostSavvy fan page on Facebook , so stay tuned for that. Massive schedule of events Stay up to date on the full SXSW schedule of events here (note that you can filter the massive schedule with “browse by&# options near the top of the page) and what you’re able to watch online here. And, if you’re game, you can always experience it by watching the Twitter stream here , though my guess is that this will be extremely chaotic as it will be a mix of content from cool panel discussions, people wondering when the bus will arrive and a few late-night tweets from party which are certain to be regretted the next morning. Is it too noisy? If you’re using Twitter and finding that the SXSW tweets are clogging your stream while you’re trying to focus on other content, before unfollowing your friends en masse, check out these options to simply “mute&# tweets containing certain keywords or hashtags. Bring it on So, sit back and enjoy the event, whether you’re in Austin with cowboys boots in tow, or at home in your jammies. Which of the events look most interesting to you? Will you be there or have you been before? Any tips for me, a first-time attendee? If you enjoyed this post, make sure you subscribe to my RSS feed !

Posted by Irene Koehler in Blogging , Facebook , LinkedIn , Social Media , Twitter on July 20, 2010 | 15 responses Does it ever feel that there is a non-stop downpour of Facebook posts, YouTube videos, Twitter tweets, LinkedIn connections and blog posts? Do you ever feel like you’re drowning in content? If so and you spend any amount of time online, it isn’t just your imagination. The larger our networks of contacts, the more information we see pushed in our direction every time one of our friends shares a link to a news article, their latest blog post and a funny video of a cat dressed as Lady Gaga. How frequently is new content added online, you may ask? It can take an awful lot of leg work and number crunching to figure that out. Luckily, Gary Hayes from Personalizemedia has put together a nifty tool which easily allows us to get a snapshot overview of the flow of uploaded content. Take a closer look and you’ll see that you can customize the data you see by selecting a timeframe and type of information (social media, mobile or games). If you’re interested in digging deeper into the source data used here, you can find all the relevant links on Gary’s blog. I’ll keep this blog post short because I just found out that I’ve got several hundred thousand YouTube videos to catch up on and that’s going to take some serious time.

Fortunately, most of that content is pretty repetitive – everyone’s still talking about the same news events, sports figures, and internet meme.

At 12:01 a.m EDT (9:00 p.m. PDT), there will be an unprecedented rush to the Facebook website as millions of users try to be the first to claim their desired Facebook username. What is the fuss all about? Right now, to direct your friends and family to your Facebook page, you must share the current URL, which likely includes a string of random characters and numbers. Wouldn’t it be nice if linking to your Facebook page was as simple as directing people to www.facebook.com/yourname? At the appointed hour, go to [link] to request your desired username. Be prepared for the site to be running slowly as you’ll be joining as many as hundreds of millions of people around the globe doing exactly the same thing at that time. For further information, see the Facebook blog. I’ve got my alarm set to remind me to be online at this time. Will you be there to claim your Facebook identity?

Directory of All Things Twitter – Finally!

Posted by Irene Koehler in Business , Social Media , Twitter on September 30, 2009 | 5 responses Twitter can be confusing, especially when you’re just getting started. The Twitter website itself is fairly simple. It allows you to post messages (or “tweets&# ), view tweets from people you’re following and run a search on everyone’s tweets. That’s about it. The magic really begins to happen when you are able to use Twitter on-the-go on your phone, build groups of people who seem most interesting to you, or share photos and files through Twitter. All this, and so much more, is possible because Twitter has made it extremely easy for developers to build applications (commonly known as “apps&# ) which enhance our Twitter experience. Some of these are designed to make us more social, more productive, just have fun, connect with people based on geography or expertise, manage our brand reputation, and offer a customer service outpost. I’m often asked to recommend the best apps to manage Twitter from someone’s iPhone, which apps allow photos to be posted to Twitter and so on. To date, there have been many people who have compiled lists of Twitter apps, but with the speed of all things Twitter-related, the lists are outdated within hours of being posted. Plus, for the most part, lists are just lists – without the additional information which makes finding and choosing the right app for your needs. To make sense of it all in a clean and easy-to-use format, Lauren Fitton ( @pistachio ), has just released oneforty.com to open beta (meaning that it is now open to everyone). The site is well organized, allowing you to search for an app by category, read reviews and share your own experiences with the apps you’ve used. I encourage you to take a look. You just might find the perfect app to make your day a little easier or more productive. What do you think? Do you expect oneforty.com to be a helpful resource to you?

Every now and then, our enthusiasm can get the best of us. As the number of multi-generational families using online social networks increases daily, so does the number of “Oh no, she didn’t!&# moments where that fuzzy line between what you want your mom to share and what she actually does share is suddenly crossed. Face it, there are things we can talk about with our friends, but let Mom or Dad say exactly the same thing, we immediately pack our belongings and look for the nearest cave to take up residence for a few months. If this is the case when our kids or parents say something “inappropriate&# in person, imagine the widespread humiliation (and hilarity) that ensues when this all takes place on a social networking site for all of your friends to see. Let’s take a peek at three humorous looks at how social media is, or might be, used to connect with our beloved family members. Twitteleh – Twitter for Your Jewish Mother Why answer the simple “What are you doing?&# question on Twitter, when you could be providing the information you mother really wants to know? “Oh Crap. My Parents Just Joined Facebook&# On this site, you’ll find hundreds of gems sent in by kids who take revenge on their parents for humiliating them on Facebook, by sharing it with the world. Names are hidden to protect those we refuse to admit are related to us. Parents, you’ve been warned! Sample some tasty tidbits from the site : Facebook, Twitter Revolutionizing How Parents Stalk Their College-Aged Kids This parody by The Onion, America’s Finest News Source , is so well produced that some people didn’t realize at first that it was a parody.

BREAKING NEWS: It Takes Work To Get Ahead | Almost Savvy

Almost Savvy

Home About Testimonials Events Services Webinars Twitter Getting Started on Twitter Webinar Twitter Webinar: Tools and Tips (Intermediate Level) LinkedIn LinkedIn 1 – Getting Started LinkedIn 2 – Building and Leveraging Your Network Ask Calendar Contact Blogging Branding Business Career Facebook LinkedIn Networking Social Media Tips Twitter Lijit Search BREAKING NEWS: It Takes Work To Get Ahead Posted by Irene Koehler in Branding , Business , Career , Networking , Social Media , Tips on September 13, 2010 | 16 responses Lately, I’ve found myself repeatedly faced with the same request. Whether the goal is the increase sales or to find a job, the request is often the same. “Tell me the one thing that I need to do.” While the request may come in different forms, it is really the same. “I’ve heard that all businesses should have a Facebook page. Should I get one?” “Should I just call the HR Manager to say I’d like the job?” “I need to get more leads. Should I get a LinkedIn account so this will happen?” It seems everyone wants the sure-fire and easy answer. People, it’s just not that simple. Success isn’t that simple. Life isn’t that simple. I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but getting ahead takes work. Hell, just getting noticed takes work. Sure, you are fabulous; no one is disputing this. We all are. But, no one will know this if we don’t work our tails off to make it dead easy for people to see hard evidence of the valuable assets we are. Just because we proclaim ourselves to be fabulous on our resume or on our website doesn’t make it so. What good does it do to work hard to become fabulous, only to stop there? What an enormous missed opportunity it would be to become something special, only to hover just below the radar, remaining a well-kept secret? It’s a big world out there. That big world is full of people who, at least on paper, are equally fabulous. The challenge is figuring out how to stand out amidst all the others. And here’s the bad news: this takes work, lots and lots of work. And the news gets worse; what worked for the person next to you may not be exactly what will work best for you. There are no cookie-cutter approaches, so stop asking what you “should&# do and start learning as much as you can so that you can determine what will work best for you. Figuring this all out is hard. If it was easy, everyone would be doing it. Herein lies the good news: everyone isn’t doing it. If you are willing to put in the time to develop a plan and learn how best to use the tools available to tell your story, you’re already ahead of the game. Instead of looking for that one thing that you “should” do, you may want to take a step back and begin by asking yourself a few hard questions, such as: What have I accomplished? This is not a list of tasks or duties. This is a story of what you’ve learned, along with the value and results you’ve been able to deliver. What makes me special? On paper, you may have held the same job as or received the same degree as the person next to you, but the two of you are as different as night and day. What is it about your style, thinking process or voice which sets you apart? How do the two items above make me uniquely prepared to deliver? Whether you’re trying to get business or a job, it is critical to define how and why you are the solution to the problem your audience may not even know that they have. Am I prepared to prove it? Rather than just telling someone how talented you are, how can you creatively prove it in a way that is easily accessible to them? Here, the internet is your friend. Have you taken the time to understand social media and social networking tools which can be a huge asset in this area? Am I connected? Relationships are critical to business success. Have you virtually connected with your real-world connections? Are you actively working to build new relationships with key influencers in your field of interest? So, stop looking for someone else to supply the answer and start looking to create your own opportunities. If you thought this could happen from the passenger seat, you’re wrong. Slide on over to the driver’s seat, grab the steering wheel and take control. Don’t worry, you don’t have to hit the gas right away. There are many excellent resources around to help you learn – if you’re committed to doing the work. Image courtesy of elfon.

And, it just got a little sexier in that you can now show off your best assets more prominently. No, I’m not talking about push-up bras; the change I’m talking about allows you to bring more attention to your professional assets. Until now, the LinkedIn profile was very structured and inflexible in its design: Summary and Specialties Applications (i.e., Blog, SlideShare, etc.) Experience Education Recommendations These sections were listed in this order and there was nothing you could do to change things around. If you wanted potential employers to know that you’d just received a PhD in Astrophysics from Harvard, you had to hope they had the patience to read through all of your part-time jobs as a paper-boy and as a cashier 7-11 to find your education way down at the bottom. Enter drag-and-drop. You can now rearrange these sections and move the most important information to the top. Have you worked with Bill Gates and want everyone to see his recommendation praising your role in building Microsoft? Move your recommendations to the top. Have you increased sales for your company over 500% in the last year? Upload a slide showing the results to SlideShare and move it where it will best show off your talents. Kudos to LinkedIn for allowing us to take more control over the look and feel of our profiles. In the future, I’d like to see the ability to drag and drop pieces of these sections, rather than the entire section. For example, when you move recommendations to the top to highlight the feedback from Bill Gates, all of your other recommendations move, too, which might make it difficult for someone to scroll down to find your skills and experience. Still, this is a fabulous step in the right direction. Take a peek at the LinkedIn video and let me know in the comments what you think of this new feature.

It is virtually impossible for most people to stay up-to-date with all the tweaks being made on all of the various social media sites. Glad you found it useful.

Reply Irene Koehler says: February 5, 2010 at 7:51 pm Thanks, Susan. Even though it doesn’t allow that level of micro-customization, I’m happy with the change. Definitely a step in the right direction. Reply Marcelino says: February 11, 2010 at 9:13 pm Wow, I didn’t know that.

Facebook Tip: How To Choose Who Can See Your Friends

Home About Testimonials Events Services Webinars Twitter Getting Started on Twitter Webinar Twitter Webinar: Tools and Tips (Intermediate Level) LinkedIn LinkedIn 1 – Getting Started LinkedIn 2 – Building and Leveraging Your Network Ask Calendar Contact Blogging Branding Business Career Facebook LinkedIn Networking Social Media Tips Twitter Lijit Search Facebook Tip: How To Choose Who Can See Your Friends Posted by Irene Koehler in Facebook , Tips on September 7, 2010 | 8 responses If it feels like it is next to impossible to keep up with all of the changes Facebook seems to implement on a weekly basis, you are definitely not alone. What’s public? What’s private? How do I know who is seeing what I post? Staying on top of all the changes can be an overwhelming task indeed. One of the many recent tweaks which hasn’t received much coverage is the ability to control who sees your list of friends. Most people don’t seem to mind if the world can see who they’re connected to on Facebook. Then again, is it that they don’t mind or that they didn’t know that they had a choice about it? Display Your A-List Friends on Your Profile On each person’s profile page, a sampling of their friends’ photos are displayed. Each time you visit that profile (or if you have the time to refresh the page over and over), you’ll likely see a different set of friends. Did you know that you can choose which friends of yours are displayed when someone visits your profile? What if you wanted to impress everyone by showing off that you’re connected to that famous author who wrote that book, that socialite who keeps getting into trouble and a couple of 20-something CEOs who just sold their companies and are now billionaires? Or, perhaps your priorities are slightly different and all you’d like to do is to be sure that no one visits your page only to see your mom’s photo waiting to greet them? Here’s how to do this: Navigate to your own profile page. (When logged into Facebook, look over to the right at the top of the page. Click on Profile.) Find your ‘Friends’ section. (On the left side of the page, about half way down.) Click on the small pencil to the right of the word ‘Friends’ This will bring up a box where you can edit your settings. You can choose to display 6, 9 or 12 friends. Below this, you can enter specific names of friends you would like to have displayed permanently. If you choose to display 6 friends, you may specifically name up to 6 friends to display (it can also be fewer than 6). Click outside the box. Your settings are saved. Take a look at your profile. You should now see your A-listers’ faces adorning your profile. Manage Who Can View All Your Friends Have you ever received a Facebook friend request that left you wondering “Who the heck is Joe Friendalicious and why does he want to be my Facebook friend?&# When you view Joe’s profile, you notice that you are both friends with Samantha, leading you to suspect that he might have simply sent friend requests to all of Samantha’s friends. This scenario is only one of many which may lead some people to choose to hide their list of friends from prying eyes. Not long ago, Facebook removed the ability to hide one’s friends, explaining that allowing users to keep this information private presented an obstacle to the overriding benefit of public sharing – to help users discover friends and news they otherwise might not have seen. Not surprisingly, people were none too happy with this change. After the enormous missteps Facebook has taken lately with respect to privacy and control over our own content and a tidal wave of bad press, they’ve modified the settings and the ability to manage who can see our Friends has returned. To customize this setting, click on the same pencil in the ‘Friends’ box as described above. This time, click on ‘Change Visibility Settings’ which will bring up a page with numerous options. Included on this page, you will find ‘See my friend list’ as show here: Clicking on this setting will display the options, as shown. If you’d like to specifically choose which of your friends may or may not see your list, select ‘Customize.’ This will bring up the following box: As with other privacy settings on Facebook, here you may specifically name people to either include or exclude. This can be a rather cumbersome task if you’ve got more than a handful of Facebook friends. I’m a big fan of using Friends Lists on Facebook to organize and categorize my connections. This significantly simplifies the process for those of us with a relatively large network. Rather than name the individuals who I will permit to see my Facebook friends, I simply add the name of the list. For example, several of my relatives are connected to me on Facebook. I’ve added them all to a Friends List I cleverly call ‘Family.’ I don’t mind at all if my family members would like to eat up their spare time by viewing all of my friends. (I’m not sure why they’d want to do this, but if they’re dying to know who I know, let it be a mystery no more.) So, rather than enter each of their names into the field above, I simply enter the name of the list that already includes all of their names – Family. I recognize this can get dicey as the lingo is mighty confusing. The field that contains all of my friends is called a list. The feature I use to organize all of my Facebook friends is called a Friends List, yet they are two completely different things. No worries, though.

The primary networking platforms which many of us use – Twitter , Facebook and LinkedIn – have all undergone huge changes, seemingly at a breakneck pace. Some have been well communicated in advance, many weren’t. Some have been well-received, many have led to frustration. A few have worked well immediately upon launch, most seem full of bugs and perform inconsistently. It’s no wonder that so many of you are frustrated and confused. You’ve been through it all. With an array of buttons to click here and there to manage privacy, sync updates with other sites, and manage spam – how is a person supposed to keep up? All this, in addition to having your account hacked. It can be a challenge. Not doubt about it. What’s Happening Now I’ve forged relationships with many of you. I cherish each one of those relationships and deeply appreciate your trust. What has happened, though, is that every day I receive emails, DMs (private tweets) or other requests for help. Since these are all out of the public view, I’m sure you don’t realize how much of my time is spent answering questions. I have three concerns about this: I have to be perfectly candid and acknowledge that it takes a huge amount of time to manage each interaction, as most involve several back and forth messages. While I enjoy doing this and want you to continue to ask for help, I have to be practical also. Chances are very high that if you have the problem or question, you are not the only one who would like to know the solution. Since these interactions are private, no one else gets the benefit of hearing the advice or solution. I don’t always know the answer. But, we’ve got some brilliant folks in our community who may know the answer or have advice to share. My Request and Solution Whenever possible, I invite you to post your question to the AlmostSavvy Facebook fan page. This addresses all three issues above. Trust me, you aren’t the only one with that question. And, if you have an answer or suggestion for someone else’s question, by all means, add your input – please! Most importantly, keep those questions coming. This just gives us a home for the interaction to take place within our community. If you haven’t already joined AlmostSavvy on Facebook , doing so only requires visiting the page and clicking the “Become A Fan&# button at the top of the page. If you are reading this on my blog, just click the button (top, right – under my picture) and you’re in! Of course, you’ll need to have already set up a Facebook account, but with well over 300 million people on Facebook, it could be just the place for you to (re)connect with your favorite people.

Important Facebook News: Privacy Updates

Almost Savvy

Home About Testimonials Events Services Webinars Twitter Getting Started on Twitter Webinar Twitter Webinar: Tools and Tips (Intermediate Level) LinkedIn LinkedIn 1 – Getting Started LinkedIn 2 – Building and Leveraging Your Network Ask Calendar Contact Blogging Branding Business Career Facebook LinkedIn Networking Social Media Tips Twitter Lijit Search Important Facebook News: Privacy Updates Posted by Irene Koehler in Facebook , Social Media on May 26, 2010 | no responses Just a quick post for today as I’m out of the country with limited internet access, but I wanted to share this email I received from Facebook today. As you probably know, Facebook has been facing a barrage of complaints regarding their “public is the new norm&# approach to privacy which resulted in much of your/our content being made public by default. This criticism has come from journalists, users, senators – pretty much everyone. I’m hopeful these changes will make it simpler for all users to understand how to control you can see and have access to their information. Still, please always remember the often-repeated advice: If you aren’t prepared for everyone to see your content (information, photo, etc.), you probably shouldn’t post it online anywhere – period. Please share your thoughts, questions and observations in the comments below. My email from Facebook: Hi Irene, Facebook will roll out changes today that will make it easier for our users to understand and control their privacy settings. As this change will have an impact on our users, we wanted to let you, a valued advertising partner, know about it. Please note that this change will not affect your advertising campaigns and there is no action required on your part.Facebook is a company that moves quickly, constantly innovating and launching new products to improve the user experience. The feedback we heard from users was that in our efforts to innovate, some of our privacy settings h ad become confusing. We believe in listening to our users and taking their feedback into account whenever possible. We think the following changes address these concerns by providing users with more control over their privacy settings and making them more simple to use. Starting today, Facebook will: *Provide an easy-to-use “master&# control that enables users to set who can see the content they share through Facebook. This enables users to choose, with just one click, the overall privacy level they’re comfortable with for the content they share on Facebook. Of course, users can still use all of the granular controls we’ve always offered, if they wish. *Significantly reduce the amount of information that must be visible to everyone on Facebook. Facebook will no longer require that users’ friends and connections are visible to everyone. Only Name, Profile Picture, Networks and Gender must be publicly available. Users can opt to make all other connections private. *Make it simple to control whether other applications and websites access any user information. While a majority of our users love Facebook apps and Facebook-enhanced websites, some may prefer not to share their information outside of Facebook. Users can now opt out with just one click.I encourage you to take a moment to read our CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s blog post and check out the new Facebook Privacy Page.

11 Sure-Fire Ways to Get Me to Unfollow You on Twitter

I have found it to be a fabulous tool, through which I’ve come to know countless brilliant and fascinating people. To me, Twitter is about building relationships. Like all social media tools, there is no one right way to use Twitter. I cannot control how others use it, but I can control who I follow and how I interact with them. I follow most people back who follow me. I like to give people the benefit of the doubt, but I do aggressively unfollow if your use of Twitter is not aligned with my own style. Of course, you are always welcome to similarly unfollow me if you feel my content is inappropriate or a bad fit for your twitterstream. Just so we’re clear, here are some of the deal-breakers for me which will likely earn you a big unfollow from me: You’re naked (or nearly naked). Yeah, I don’t really know what you’re wearing, or not, when you’re actually tweeting, but please put some clothes on that avatar. You talk about yourself endlessly. This is where most of your tweets are just broadcasting links to your blog, your e-book, your teleclass, your LinkedIn profile…enough already. Way to take the “social&# right out of social media. You tweet links for me to “Click here to make money on Twitter&# or “… get 1,000s of followers.&# I’m here because I want to know *you* – if the feeling isn’t mutual, that’s OK. We’re just not a good fit. And, I appreciate that you’re guaranteeing that I’ll make tons of money on Twitter; I’m still not interested. You recommend people you don’t even follow, including me, in a #FollowFriday tweet. What’s up with that? How can you recommend someone you don’t even remotely know? You include links which are misleading. I’m not talking about RickRolling here; I mean making it seem like there is really great content if you just follow this link, only to have it lead to promotional material or a squeeze page. This happens when you take advantage of the common convention of shortened links on Twitter and is a violation of the trust your followers have placed in you. Your tweets are automated and often post content repeatedly in bursts where suddenly my twitterstream is nothing but you. It may be easier on your end, but it is just rude for those of us on the receiving end. You don’t engage with others. When I look at your profile and don’t see any tweets which begin with an @ symbol, this means you are just broadcasting information, not actually talking or replying to anyone else. You don’t practice what you preach. There are some on Twitter with huge numbers of followers who preach about the importance of engagement, yet routinely don’t reply to others. When following huge numbers of people, this can become a challenge, but there are many who manage this successfully building their own credibility by walking the talk. You have tweeted twice, yet are already following hundreds of people. I sense you’re a bot, rather than a real person, and can already see spam on the horizon. You use TweetLater or some other service to send auto-DMs (direct messages) to me once I start following you. You are so excited that I’ve decided to follow that you tell me that I seem like a really interesting person or you offer me a free e-book or send me a link to take a survey for new followers to help you get to know me (yes, really!). I’d much prefer that you read a few of my tweets, interact with me and really get to know me. I don’t need to be bought with a gift for being your friend and, heaven knows, I surely don’t want a stranger selling stuff to me right out of the gate. You don’t get that authenticity is a key component of social media success. You have the default Twitter avatar or are using a photo of your dog. You haven’t completed your Twitter bio – come on, it is really, really easy to do. I don’t know your name and can’t find your blog, your LinkedIn profile or any other online presence. I’m here for networking and to get to know people. If you want help setting up your profile, all you need to do is ask, I’ve helped many others and would be happy to help you. Even on a list of 11 items, it is worth repeating #1 – Go put some clothes on. Seriously. What about you? Do any of these sound familiar? What would you add to the list?

Chances are that you’re one of the over 300 million people who have set-up a virtual home on Facebook because it is a great place to keep up with family and friends, as well as connecting with businesses and groups of interest. It is also a place filled with fascinating information – blog posts, videos, photos and news articles. Recently, I’ve been asked several times about the proper etiquette when sharing this information. As we all know, etiquette is a relative concept, but with the introduction of “mentions&# (similar to tagging) on Facebook, it is now easier than ever to share the information and let the person who originally posted it know that you appreciated it. Rather than explain how to do this in writing, I think it might be simpler to demonstrate how this works step-by-step. Other than the fact that I’m in serious need of better lighting (long story),? please let me know in the comments below if this was helpful to you. How are you using, or do you expect to use, the new “mentions&# feature on Facebook? (This is the first time I’ve used this new screencasting software. It didn’t come out exactly the way I’d hoped, but it gets the job done. The good news is that it’s all up from here! Take a look at a few seconds of one of my earlier, and ill-fated, attempts. ).

Facebook @mentions are the proper way to credit my excellent facebook friends whenever I re-share a link or video. By the way, your earlier attempt was hilarious!

Reply Irene Koehler says: October 6, 2009 at 12:33 pm For those of us using Twitter, the @mentions feature feels a little more familiar, but I’ve found that it is confusing to most everyone else. And, yeah, the cat – I had recorded several minutes before this happened. I was trying to nudge her out of view with my elbow, but you can see she had other plans. Reply Anastasia Schuster says: October 6, 2009 at 8:12 am Hey Irene, This was very helpful. I’ve been using @ mentions to pull people into joint wall posts, but never as a way to thank the originator of something I shared. I haven’t been using FB professionally nor are the people I tend to be connected with so it didn’t occur to me to use the @ mention as a way to publicly thank them and bring attention to their profile. None the less, it is good etiquette so instead of just mentioning them, I’ll use the @ mention. Reply Irene Koehler says: October 6, 2009 at 12:36 pm Excellent point, Anastasia! Use of the @mentions feature is definitely not limited to thanking someone. It can be used for many purposes to let someone know you?re talking about (or to) them.

Watch and Play Along! Posted by Irene Koehler in Blogging , Business , Facebook , Networking , Social Media , Tips , Twitter on December 8, 2009 | one response Here in Paris, the excitement about LeWeb is palpable. While the actual conference will take place over the next two days, there are many pre-conference parties and activities today.? I’m thrilled to be here as one of the LeWeb Official Bloggers and looking forward to meeting many of my peers from around the world. One peek at the agenda and it is easy to see that the conference is packed full of meaty content. For those of you who aren’t lucky enough to be here, you may watch the events below. If for any reason, the embedded videos don’t work, just go to the LeWeb homepage, I’m sure there will be an updated link, if needed. Whether you are participating in person or via the web, I invite you to have a little fun with the content by playing LeWeb Bingo. If you’ve never played bingo , it works like this: Print one or both Bingo “cards&# and keep it with you as you listen to the presentations. (To print, click on the image once, then click on it again. You’ll get a nice, large image suitable for printing.) As you hear one of the speakers use one of the terms listed somewhere on the Bingo card , place a large X in that square. The center square is a “free&# spot. It automatically counts as having an X. When you have an entire row, column or diagonal filled with X’s, you have Bingo! (I only advise yelling the traditional “Bingo!&# if you are watching remotely and are alone at home. Yelling at the conference is done at your own risk.) If you really want to win it all, go for a “blackout&# – which means you continue to play until all squares on your card have an X. (And, by “win it all&# , I mean that you get absolutely nothing as there are no prizes at all. You may, however, feel free to wager with a friend to see who will achieve “blackout&# first.).
