Finding and following on online networks

This is the third webinar in the three-part series "Getting online information to come to you," but stands alone, so feel free to attend, regardless of whether or not you participate in the others.

Whether it’s figuring out the next book to read, movie to see, or contractor to hire (for example), we each have trusted advisors we turn to with questions on a particular topic. Social networks (e.g., Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+) can be used to find people whose opinions you trust or who have similar interests. By tuning in to what they are talking about and engaging with them, we can discover information that we would have had difficulty finding on our own. This webinar will explore how online networks can be used to find interesting people and topics to expand your knowledge and discover hard to find information.
