The content you share on social media determines the network you build and the audience you get. There may be times when you stumble upon great content but don't want to share it all right then. An awesome app, BufferApp solves your problem by queuing up your content so that it could be shared at a later point of time depending on the time the users are more active.

Effective networking: perfecting post-meeting contact

Effective networking: perfecting post-meeting contact | Business Tips | Scoop.it

Networking is more effective the more you do it; it shouldn't be something you only do in a crisis. Don't become the sort of networker who only contacts people when they are looking for a job – that's not the way to build lasting, successful relationships. Successful networking is an ongoing career activity, and your contacts should be people you can get in touch with at any time without feeling awkward or embarrassed.

 

The first meeting you have with someone is usually just about getting to know each other. The real results come over time, as you and your contact each begin to understand each other's needs.
