Social networking is now a very important part of our lives and our businesses.

Facebook and Linkedin – how to use them to make your life easier and more productive.
Facebook is very much a social networking site – its a great way to keep connecting to friends and family. In fact, like many others I know, I got a Facebook page – so I could keep in touch with the generations below me in my family – my nieces and their children and friends. Since then it has grown, but my page is definately a friends and family page. I have done some great business networking on it, but I have come to believe it is best to be clear about the difference in my personal and public life.

Linkedin is focused on business and business networking. You can set up groups, connect with similar businesses and network.
Better still: The Tweet Deck application enables you to connect to Facebook and Linkedin all with one login. Its fantastic!
