Reading the NZ Herald today I came across an article by Debbie Mayo-Smith. The topic of discussion was Social Networking sites in business. This of course aligns with my recent posts on Web 2.0 tools for marketing and Using Web 2.0 Tools for Value Add.
Ms Mayo-Smith’s column is well worth a read. It can also be found via her web site.
A friend of mine gave me one of Debbie Mayo-Smith’s books to read, Conquer Your email Overload and I found it very useful. Some of the tips I knew, but being reminded was not an issue.
Interestingly, at least I think so, the issue of Web 2.0 tools ties into a post of mine much earlier in this blog’s existence when I wrote about an article by Andrew Sullivan at The Atlantic and the use of blogs as a communication tool. In that post I extrapolated from O’Sullivan’s article and wondered for example about using a blog in a project context for example. More and more it would seem that social networking sites may have a role in business.
