    • What is it and Why Do We Care?
      • Social Media is many things to many people
        • Blogs
        • Tools like Twitter, Friendfeed, Plurk and Jaiku
        • Public social networks like Facebook and LinkedIn
        • Social bookmarketing/tagging sites like deli.cio.us and digg
      • We care because all of us pulling in the same direction can help us create greater awareness AND demonstrate our capabilities
      • I DON’T ever want anyone to feel like the HAVE to participate though. We all have different comfort levels and we all need to respect those comfort levels.
    • Sample Blogging Policy
      • NO astro-turfing and NO infomercials (aaron)
      • Be authentic! (aaron)
      • Respect the company’s confidentiality and proprietary information.
      • Ask your manager if you have any questions about what is appropriate to include in your blog.
      • Be respectful to the company, employees, customers, partners, and competitors.
      • Understand when the company asks that topics not be discussed for confidentiality or legal compliance reasons.
      • Ensure that your blogging activity does not interfere with your work commitments.
      • Make it clear that the views expressed in the blog are yours alone and do not necessarily represent the views of your employer.

    • When to Comment
    • Twitter
      • We have a corporate account @poweredinc
      • There are about 15-20 of us already on Twitter
      • Want a tutorial?
      • Interested in “follow” suggestions?
      • Looking for tips on “how to” or Twiter etiquette?
    • Yammer
      • Great way to share
      • Desktop version = GOOD
      • Real pictures are also good EVEN if they aren’t that cool
      • Think “MORE” vs. “less”
      • Be sure to update your profile
    • RSS Readers
    • Five Bloggers to Follow (there are many more)
