LinkedIn Tips: How to Create a LinkedIn Profile and Build Your Network

LinkedIn Tips: How to Create a LinkedIn Profile and Build Your Network | Social Networking for Information Professionals | Scoop.it
As outlined previously on this blog, I’m running a Social Summer program for SAP employees who want to learn more about social networking and how to get the best out of it. At the same time I’m introducing them to some of the SAP social channels and our policies around participation. This weeks session was about LinkedIn – the starting place for your professional brand.

It’s a source of advice, support and sometimes your next career move. The power of networking should never be underestimated.

Here I’ll share with you just some of the tips I covered during the session...

Liking Library Data

Liking Library Data | Social Networking for Information Professionals | Scoop.it
Social networking websites have made us all aware of the value of modeling aspects of our daily lives in graph databases, even if we don't realize that's what we're doing. Since the "semantic web" is predicated on the idea that ALL knowledge can be usefully represented as a giant, global graph, it's perhaps not so surprising that the most familiar, and most widely implemented application of semantic web technologies has been Facebook's "Like" button.

The outpour of responses was fantastic and after reading through them all, one common theme bubbled to the top – real, authentic and transparent engagement is the key to social media success (over 50% of the responses touched on this theme). Below is a look at all of the responses.

Why Twimbow just became my favorite Twitter client on the web.

Why Twimbow just became my favorite Twitter client on the web. | Social Networking for Information Professionals | Scoop.it
My Twitter stream is noisy. Really, really noisy. It’s not so much that I follow a lot of people, it’s more that I have a lot of interaction. When I’m at home, I use TweetDeck to keep up, but when I’m not at my own computer, I don’t have that option.
Twimbowjust made my life a lot easier, and a bit more colorful to boot.
