Join Dave Crenshaw for an in-depth discussion in this video Choosing the right social networks, part of Building Your Professional Network.
There are so many options for social networks and it is important that you make wise choices…as to which ones you use.…Think of social networking sites in the same way that I asked you think about in-person…business networks, it is a good idea to participate in a few of them.…However, if you participate in too many you will spread yourself too thin and your relationships…with people in the online world may be very superficial.…Because of this I recommend that you participate in three networks at any given time.…
Keep in mind that by a network I am referring to an online networking portal where people…gather to share information, collaborate, and discuss.…Given how many networks there are and how quickly they change.…How do you know which would be the best three for you to join?…First, consider their popularity.…In your region or country, there are likely social networks that are more popular than others.…I recommend that you participate in the most popular networks available to you.…
Next consider your target market.…
