Examples of Web 2.0 include web-based communities, hosted services, web applications, social-networking sites, video-sharing sites, wikis, blogs, mashups (site with many feeds/sources) and folksonomies (picture sharing). A Web 2.0 site allows its users to interact with other users or to change website content, in contrast to non-interactive websites where users are limited to the passive viewing of information that is provided to them. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web_2.0) <br />Web 2.0 is a collection of technologies that allows users to interact with online content. This means Web surfers are no longer bound by the static experience of Web 1.0. These tools engage users by letting them participate in, control and guide their online visit. Some of the most popular Web 2.0 applications include: social networks, blogs, podcasts, and online video. Widespread adoption of Web 2.0 in America indicates that Web users have become more sophisticated and desire a personalized experience. <br />■ By 2012, the number of people reading blogs, at least once a month, is expected to grow to 145 million.<br /> <br />■ The number of people who visit social networks at least once a month is projected to increase to 115 million by 2013<br />. <br />■ Podcast audience will increase 251% by 2012. <br />■ Online video consumers will include 88% of Internet users by 2012. <br />Quick Profile of Internet Users <br />■ As of 2009, there were 199.2 million Internet users.<br />■ 55% of adult Americans have high-speed Internet connections at home.<br />■ Research by Pew Internet found 72% adults go online on a daily basis.<br /> <br />■ 34% of Internet users are always connected, using internet services away from the home.<br />■ 18.8 million people used the Internet to search for a job in December 2008.<br />■ 34% of active job seekers visit company websites to search and apply for jobs.<br />■ 19% of people use a social networking site daily.<br />■ Over 30% of social network users are college graduates<br />What is Social Media?<br />According to Wikipedia: Social media is media designed to be disseminated through social interaction, created using highly accessible and scalable publishing techniques. Social media supports the human need for social interaction, using Internet- and web-based technologies to transform broadcast media monologues (one to many) into social media dialogues (many to many). It supports the democratization of knowledge and information, transforming people from content consumers into content producers. Businesses also refer to social media as user-generated content (UGC) or consumer-generated media (CGM).<br />(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Social_media)<br />Examples of Social Media<br />Forums and Online Communities (yahoo.groups, google.groups, etc)<br />Blogs<br />Social Networks (facebook, myspace, etc)<br />Multimedia Sharing (YouTube, Flickr, Picaso, etc)<br />Digg<br />RSS readers<br />Microblogging (Twitter, Jaiku, Plurk)<br />Top Social Media Sites (ranked by unique worldwide visitors November, 2008; comScore)<br />Blogger (222 million)<br />Facebook (200 million)<br />MySpace (126 million)<br />Wordpress (114 million)<br />Windows Live Spaces (87 million)<br />Yahoo Geocities (69 million)<br />Flickr (64 million)<br />hi5 (58 million)<br />Orkut (46 million)<br />Six Apart (46 million)<br />What are Social networks?<br />According to Wikipedia: A social network service focuses on building online communities of people who share interests and/or activities, or who are interested in exploring the interests and activities of others. Most social network services are web based and provide a variety of ways for users to interact, such as e-mail and instant messaging services.<br />Popular methods now combine many of these, with Facebook widely used worldwide; MySpace, Twitter and LinkedIn being the most widely used in North America; (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Social-networking)<br />Networking 2.0. The days of blind resume searching and generalized branding messages are over. It is all about who you know, and who they know. The two most important online networks for recruiting are Facebook and LinkedIn. These online networks provide very different types of user engagement. Facebook is used to connect classmates and old friends, while LinkedIn is purely for professional use.<br />Social Network Stats<br />Great reference for up-to-date stats: http://socialmediastatistics.wikidot.com/start<br />According to Anderson Analytics, Generation Z (13-to-14-year-old) social network users were more likely to use MySpace than Facebook. Only 9% of them used Twitter and none used LinkedIn<br />Generation Y was a somewhat different story. Three-quarters of 15-to-29-year-olds used MySpace, 65% used Facebook, 14% used Twitter and 9% used LinkedIn. <br />Generation X, 30-to-44-year-olds, and baby boomers, 44-to-65-year-olds, connected on LinkedIn more than any demographic. <br />Nine in 10 older social network users, which Anderson Analytics called the WWII generation, used Facebook, and 17% tweeted. <br />When it came to why social networkers joined a social network, however, the reasons were similar from generation to generation. <br />Sizable percentages of every age group wanted to keep in touch with friends, have fun or stay in contact with family, or had been invited by someone they knew. The youngest users were most likely to be interested in fun and friends, while family contact appealed more to older social networkers. <br />Top Worldwide Sites unique visitors (June, 2009).  Source: comScore<br />Google Sites: 844 million<br />Microsoft Sites: 691 million<br />Yahoo!

  15. 15. Initiate curiosity and drive people to generate awareness
  16. 16. Get your brand (yourself and company) out to the people</li></ul>Building your Brand – Being the next Band-Aid or Kleenex<br />In its simplest form, a brand is a noun. It is the name attached to a product or service. However, upon close inspection, a brand represents many more intangible aspects of a product or service: a collection of feelings and perceptions about quality, image, lifestyle and status. It creates in the mind of customers and prospects the perception that there is no product or service on the market that is quite like yours. A brand offers the customer a guarantee and then delivers on it.<br />Viral Marketing – allowing your message to disperse among your community and out to other communities within your network – via blog, twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, etc..<br />How do I get started?<br /><ul><li>Go and meet users on the Internet – LinkedIn, Facebook, MySpace, Twitter
  17. 17. Create Group or join groups of interests
  18. 18. Participate
  19. 19. Build trust</li></ul>Listening Post<br />Get a Google account and get Google Reader. Go to Technorati and/or Google Blogsearch. Find the search bar and put in:<br />-Your name in quotes.-Your company name (if that matters).-Your competition’s name.- keywords to your industry. <br />A Social Hub or Two<br />Go to FriendFeed. Build an account and add your blog, your Flickr photos, your Upcoming.org, and your whatever-you’re-doing-on-the-Web into it. This is another way to share out what you’re doing, but also another place where conversations are happening that you might not see if you’re not there with another kind of listening post.<br />Some Social Network Outposts<br />At this point, my top 3 choices for social networks are:<br />-LinkedIn – for professional networking.-Facebook – for social circles.-Twitter– for everyday conversation and networking. <br />On those sites, amongst other things, be sure to point links back to your primary site or your blog. Thread the needle for people.<br />What to Do With It All<br />This is partially difficult to answer, as it’s up to you what your goals are for using social media. But some of the things you can do once you have this all in place are:<br />-Learn who’s talking about you (or your company, or the other keywords you put into your reader), and engage them in conversation on their site.<br />-Make relationships with others before you need them on social networks.<br />-Find other professionals in your field, or in unrelated fields on social networks.<br />-Connect with old friends and business colleagues.<br />-Discover new people through reading and learning, and follow the media they make on the various networks, and/or in Friendfeed.<br />-Learn more about your competitors through the media they make, and discover where you can build more value. <br />With a good core blog, you can further reinforce this positive brand. Have conversations on Twitter, share your pictures, guest post and comment. Participate in forums that relate to what you do and your audience. <br />Above all where you want connections to be made, use a consistent avatar, picture, nickname and style. Connect all the profiles back to your blog, and where appropriate link out to the social media sites.<br />Growing your LinkedIn Network - Being a Linked-In Open Networker (LION) <br />Search LinkedIn for colleagues and classmates <br />Auto-scan your Webmail (Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail, AOL, etc.) and Outlook for contacts<br />Use “Discover your contacts” at least once a month<br />Upload new contacts regularly using the Outlook toolbar<br />Build your Network Quickly – <br /><ul><li>www.opennetworker.com

  22. 22. Have access to all those who join – it’s your group!
  23. 23. Join other groups – monitor discussions
  24. 24. See where the experts are and network</li></ul>Why create your own group?<br />LinkedIn Groups are free to create and boost your niche candidate pipelines<br />People are more likely to accept a group invite than a personal networking connection<br />You can send a message to everyone in your group, even if they are not your direct connections<br />It's a great destination to include in your signature file<br />Prequalify members by obtaining detailed information listed in their profile<br />If your group content is good it can drive viral marketing (word of mouth)<br />Groups are an easy way to build your brand in your target niche almost overnight<br />Offer immense value to your target audience. <br />Groups can be focused and adjusted on-the-fly, responding to your community's needs in a timely way. <br />Gain your audience's trust and attention, particularly if you offer valuable insights or information they don't get elsewhere. <br />Group Discussions are an excellent way to engage your target community in a conversation.<br />You can even have several different groups, one for each of your niches. <br />Sales and Recruiters = Offense and Defense = Team CDI <br />Communication critical to success<br />Provide Recruiting team with information to succeed <br />Provide Sales with vetted candidates<br />Time = $ so be as efficient in your disciplines as possible. YOU are the EXPERT<br />A client placement is a Homerun or Touchdown for Team CDI – Everyone involved WINS<br />For Sales/Account Mgrs<br />One of the best ways to find targeted industry professionals is a combined search of related job titles and company names (use tools like Indeed or SimplyHired to find).<br />www.Indeed.com<br />Indeed.com is a search engine for jobs, allowing job seekers to find jobs posted on thousands of company career sites and job boards.<br />Find similar jobs – <br />various titles for that job – <br />Companies looking for that job – <br />Locations - <br />Breakdown on Employers and Staffing agencies looking for that job<br />Create a RSS feed to monitor future jobs from a company or in the job in general<br />Analytics on a particular Job trend – see if a demand<br />www.SimplyHired.com<br />Same as Indeed, but breaks down into more detail.<br />www.Zoominfo.com - Expand your list of relevant companies to target –especially under-the-radar players Shows. Free and premium service – Free service provides Company name, info, summary, job openings, employee names, list of competitors, News articles, etc. The premium service provides email address/contact info. But you can probably figure out how to get that info, like company email address, just by using some other people finding/locating techniques within this presentation<br />www.Jigsaw.com – interactive site – you put in your contact and you get access to someone else’s. Swap database of employee info – like a electronic rolodex where everyone can share provide they participate.<br />try company search.(All choices are in the Search menu atop the homepage.)<br />Find people being talked about by sales people and/or other recruiters<br />You can mix industry/subindustry, geography down to local level, etc., in your criteria.<br />Downloadble company lists (free company data)<br />Run your search on 2 million companies<br />www.linkedin.com – great tool for gathering intelligence on your targeted accounts and prospects.<br /><ul><li>You’ll find company information, locations, subsidiaries
  25. 25. Current employees, new employees, and former employees (assuming they are in LinkedIn of course)
  26. 26. Common job titles, recent promotions and changes
  27. 27. Popular profiles</li></ul>Targeting such searches to blogs will often get you additional useful intelligence<br />WIN THE WAR. The National Sales Executive Association has conducted a survey on how many sales you can get depending on how many times you contact your prospects.  Their statistics show that most sales are made from the 5th contact through the 12th contact.  Here is the data they have compiled about on which prospect contact the sale is made: <br />Cumulative<br />2%   of sales are made on the 1st contact 2%3%   of sales are made on the 2nd contact 5%5%   of sales are made on the 3rd contact 10%10% of sales are made on the 4th contact 20%80% of sales are made on the 5th - 12th contact100%<br />With these statistics in mind, structure the mix of your calls to maximize success. The first calls require 50 attempts to succeed while fourth contact calls require only 10 attempts to succeed. Follow-through drives results.<br />CALL ACCOUNTS RECEIVABLE OR PAYROLL. Employees in these departments are taught to answer telephones and return messages. Customer service is important to their job function. They will talk with anyone. Ask some questions and get a lot of useful information before asking to transfer to another extension.<br />E-MAIL A FOLLOW-THROUGH. An e-mail follow-through to your listener greatly increases the chance of a return call. I encourage you to turn on the return receipt requested feature in your e-mail software. Knowing that the listener opened your e-mail is a very valuable when making the next telephone call. The subject line should reference the voice mail and have a date stamp: "Follow-through on Tuesday's voice mail" or "My xx/xx/xxxx voice mail". An email follow-through builds recognition with your listener.<br />Try to Get the following from Hiring Manager during discussion of Requirement<br /><ul><li>“Must have” keywords that if absent will eliminate candidate
  28. 28. Preferred or Nice to have keywords that would elevate a candidate to the top of the list
  29. 29. Names of Competitor Companies

  32. 32. Social Networks (LinkedIn, MySpace, Facebook, Twitter, Xing, Blogs, etc)
  33. 33. Groups, Associations, and Conferences
  34. 34. Company Pages</li></ul>Find resumes and listings of people on the open Internet, who are often never found in subscription-based resume databases. Remember that the best results come from using more than one search string, on more than one search engine, because the overlap is very small – usually under 10% of the first 100 results. (Thumbshots.com ranking tool illustrates this.)<br />Internet Mining or Web Sourcing for Resumes<br />Searching prospect’s via Google, Yahoo, MSN/Bing, and other search engines.<br />Searching on Google<br />Resumes by geography on Google<br />Useful for zip code search<br />Use a tool like ZipMath’s Zip Codes in a Radius (under Applications menu) to find the low and high zip values<br />Example: Seattle area resumes ~cv (C++ OR MFC) ~ui 98001..98599 -example -job -jobs -sample -send -submit -template -your <br />Try these only on Google because they use the tilde ~ (like or related):<br />Example with "interior design" - KEYWORDS (built | created | designed | worked) (intitle:~blog | inurl:~blog) ~cv -job -jobs -send -submit -you<br />Example with "public accounting" -KEYWORDS education (blog | blogs) (comments | rss | feed | archives | posted | tags | trackback) ~cv -job -jobs -send -submit -you<br />Searching on Yahoo<br />Same searches can be performed on the Yahoo search engine except tilde ~ cannot as that is unique to Google only. However, one command is unique to Yahoo and that is the <br />Use linkdomain: to find pages that point back to your target site.<br />Yahoo’s linkdomain command allows you to search for and find websites/pages that link back to a specified site. For example, we can leverage Yahoo’s linkdomain functionality to search for websites/pages that link back to Facebook groups and pages.<br />Let’s look for websites/pages that mention groups, organizations, or associations, “accounting,” CPA, and “New York” as well as link back to Facebook:<br />linkdomain:facebook.com (group OR association OR organization) CPA accounting “New York”<br />Let your imagination and creativity run wild – using Yahoo’s linkdomain search functionality you can target Facebook groups of minority groups, industry groups, skill groups, etc. For example:<br />linkdomain:facebook.com (group OR association OR organization) women engineers<br />Use feature:homepage to find personal and professional pages<br />feature:homepage C++ UNIX (resume or cv or vitae or bio)<br />feature:homepage (biztalk dallas)<br />KEYWORD1 KEYWORD2 (resume OR vitae) feature:homepage<br />Site: Command – for searching within a web site<br />Blogs<br />Use Blogs to find experts and track people who comment on specific subjects or to source competitive intelligence.<br />Focus on site(s) known for hosting many blogs<br />("j2ee application" OR "j2me application") site:spaces.live.com-job -jobs<br />"investment banking" analyst site:blogspot.com-job -jobs <br />Social networks<br />Sites like LinkedIn, Xing and MySpace are searchable:<br />site:linkedin.com “sales executive” Hallmark “atlanta area”<br />site:linkedin.com "software engineer|developer * Lehman brothers" -intitle:directory<br />site:linkedin.com "software engineer|developer * verizon wireless" -intitle:directory<br />site:linkedin.com "software engineer|developer * motorola" -intitle:directory "new york area"<br />site:xing.com "product manager" baxter<br />site:myspace.com" mtvnetworks "producer " santa monica<br />Company pages<br />Search corporate sites for pronouns and job titles:<br />site:pfizer.comregulatory (he OR she)<br />Events, Conferences, Groups, Associations<br />site:raps.org director pfizer<br />site:mvpa.com geffen<br />Search for Filetypes<br />Most Search Engines can find documents written in: MS Word (doc), Adobe (pdf), Rich Text (rtf), Plain text (txt), PowerPoint (ppt), Excel (xls), and others<br />Use filetype: to find only that kind of document<br />If they are talking about themselves they may publish resumes, white papers, etc. Find documents in Adobe and MS Word:(filetype:doc OR filetype:pdf)<br />If they are being talked about they may be mentioned in spreadsheets or powerpoint presentations:(filetype:xls OR filetype:ppt)<br />Examples:<br />(filetype:doc| filetype:xls | filetype:ppt | filetype:txt| filetype:rtf | filetype:pdf) engineer (*@dell.com | *@hp.com)<br />filetype:xls (Alumni OR Attendee) *@ibm.com<br /><ul><li>(filetype:doc OR filetype:wpd OR filetype:wps OR filetype:pdf OR filetype:rtf OR filetype:txt) AND (intitle:resume OR inurl:resume) AND ("software engineer" | “software developer”)

Instead of delivering millions of search results in one long list, our search engine groups similar results together into clusters. Clusters help you see your search results by topic so you can zero in on exactly what you’re looking for or discover unexpected relationships between items. When was the last time you went to the third or fourth page of the search results? Rather than scrolling through page after page, the clusters help you find results you may have missed or that were buried deep in the ranked list.<br />www.Dogpile.com<br />www.AllTheInternet.com<br />** Special commands from the major search engines are not universal.

The Semantic Web is an evolving development of the World Wide Web in which the meaning (semantics) of information and services on the web is defined, making it possible for the web to understand and satisfy the requests of people and machines to use the web content<br />And beyond Web 3.0? Perhaps combining the virtual worlds of tomorrow with Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter. We’re already seeing a need to have one place to manage family and business connections and eliminating the need to maintain multiple sites.<br />Whatever it may look like – know that we’ll have access to vast amounts of information and applications which may blur the line between reality and cyber-space.<br />
