Social Media: Job Searching & Business

From YouTube clips and Flickr posts, to the friend finding searches of Facebook, nearly everyone is using social media today.  These days, email addresses and chat software are a thing of the past.  The new way to stay connected is through Tweets! Are you on Twitter?

Even the library is on board for social media connections.  We have Monday Minutes on YouTube, a daily updated Facebook Page, and we Tweet!  So, how about you?  Are you using social media to stay connected? 

Have you considered using social media for Job Searching?  For business development?  As a marketing strategy?

Check out these great ideas from bloggers published on Social Media Today!  Here’s one I found from Dave Writes (blog).  Some people are using Twitter to follow people who are in the same professional field.  Facebook users are often members for networking purposes.  Becoming a “Fan” of a company’s page might help keep you up-to-date with the trends of that company.  Anywhere you can make connections could help you in your job search.  From job leads to referrals, even just having others know your work history and desired positions can help!

Maybe you’ve just started a new business and want to get the word out there.  Many social media programs are free and the numbers of users are growing daily.  Check out this blog for more information on how to use social media for your business!  social media books
