Social Networking Just Fun and Relevant for Business?

Anyone who has spent more than a few minutes with me recently is well aware that Social Networking is a hot topic for me. And those who have known me for long know that if I can find a way to use technology, well…I’m all over that! So now the challenge becomes for me and for you, is this time well spent?

What I know is that in a few weeks I have seen my networks grow exponentially. So yeh, it’s been fun. While I watch T.V. in the evening I watch friends, family (kid in college) and chamber members posting messages about what they’re up to. But here’s the cool thing. I also see a tweet from Congressman Thompson announcing his support of the Secret Ballot Protection Act http://tinyurl.com/c3sft5, important to preserving workers rights and protecting business in PA. In can also check into a networking sight for those involved in the pursuit of Main Street designation for Oil City, www.ocmainst.ning.com.

Now for those who really just want to watch T.V. I get it. You might not have time for this, but if you’re with me, tweet me, skype me or invite me to be your friend!

It is quite fun to hear people talking about ‘tweeting’ on Twitter. It’s great to do if you have time for it and if you are motivated to reach out and connect on another level with people.

Gotta go…I hear a tweet!
