Often in business meetings I’m being asked why social networking websites have rapidly increased in popularity and how social networking can help businesses. Here are a few reasons:
Social networking websites are, for the most part, easy to use and they also make it easier to meet new people online although the majority are free to use, many websites require that you register with them. This registration will not only allow you to create your own profile or a link to your website, but it will also allow you to contact other networking members.
Before you start communicating you need to develop your online profile or profile page. One of the most important things to include in your online website is your picture and your name. Most of the social networks are well optimized for search engines such as Google and Bing, therefore it’s useful to add your full name.
