  • How to build an international network of contacts without leaving your desk Network with the world Step 3 : Create your social networking strategy Step 3 Summary: Take a strategic approach to social networking ✖ DON’T ✔ DO Jump right in with self-promotion Lurk and learn - Especially ‘local customs’ (etiquette) Use SNs as a place to vent Provide value - Entertain, inform, help, share information, etc Passively wait to connect Twitter : Tweet links, @reply, RT, ask questions Facebook : Update status, comment on others’ statuses, write on walls, post items, etc Be aloof/boring/corporate Show a little personality - Wish happy birthday, ask/answer questions, etc Talk religion, politics, sex , or swear Be sensitive ; it’s easy to lose friends/followers
    • Attract friends/followers/connections:
    • Be active & add value -> organic growth
