Business Tips Segment:
Jill Foster:
Online social networks and the 15 minute time saving tip

Online social networks (OSNs) like Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Plaxo, etc can be fantastic ways to fertilize or ‘warm up’ new relationships i.e. idea partners, new talent for your company, or certainly new customers.  But sometimes participation can be big time occupier.  Colleagues and I have found it can be daunting on deciding which OSN to contribute to and for how long.  But allowing yourself just to start is key and worth the benefit.  A suggestion:  choose one or two networks depending on your ultimate goal and conversational style.  Then participate daily for just 15 minutes.

Joe Loong:
Don’t forget to network: Use local tech and social media events to network, gain expertise, and meet contacts. If these events don’t exist in your area, start some!
