>5 Tips for Job Seekers on Corporate Social Networks


Business Network Puzzle

Anne Berkowitch is co-founder and CEO of SelectMinds, the leading provider of networking and referral technologies and of the recently launched TalentVine referral recruiting solution. You can follow SelectMinds on Twitter at @SelectMinds.

There?€™s a lot of talk these days about using social networks as job search tools as well as sources for recruiters and HR executives to scout talent. Many organizations opt to build secure, private networks for their current and former employees that provide a place for people to connect and refer opportunities, contacts and information to one another. Here are some tips to get the most out of these increasingly common company networks.

1. Remember Your Resources

While it may be natural to dive into the wider web in your job search, you might be better served to take advantage of resources and people you are already connected to. Many businesses of all sizes offer networks to connect current and former employees. Check in with HR heads of former employers and find out what networking tools they offer. In the battle for great talent, it?€™s in their interest to keep up with you and where your career is headed.

2. Present Your Best Self

When building your identity and reputation on a company network, it?€™s important to remember that these networks are professional environments that are rarely anonymous. While you may have shared some drinks at the holiday party in 2007, you still want to engage with current and former colleagues on a strictly professional basis. Remember to update your information (title, company, leadership experience, etc.) regularly, perhaps every quarter, and point it out to relevant people as appropriate.

Also note that while you’re maintaining a professional presence on internal company networks, your public social profiles on Facebook, Twitter and other sites will often be checked by recruiters before they make contact with you. We?€™ve all heard the horror stories — for example, applicants updating their status or tweeting before and after an interview with disparaging or confidential remarks about the company. We?€™ve heard about recent college grads who have thousands of photos on Facebook, many of which are not work appropriate. These are lessons applicants need only learn once. Showing some personality is important, but it?€™s a fine line.

3. Reconnect

Business Team Image

People are used to getting ?€?Friended,?€? ?€?Followed,?€? ?€?Connected With?€? and more on a regular basis, so reaching out to past colleagues with whom you’ve worked should be well received. It?€™s a great way to share opportunities, personal and professional news, and stay up to date on happenings at your company. When you join a company network, spend some time identifying colleagues and friends within the organizations and acknowledge them on the network.

The foundation of many workplace relationships is gained in the first few days working together. A vendor my company works with recently had an influx of new hires due to business growth. The new team they assembled is full of characters and they promote camaraderie as an essential piece of their corporate culture. These employees are not just all Facebook friends but they?€™re neighbors, they Follow each other on Twitter, retweet each other, etc. They are connected personally and online in a way we know will continue even if one of them should make a career move.

4. Show Your Self-Motivation

As everyone knows, finding a job is work in itself. If you want to get advice from a former colleague or talk about business connections or job opportunities, you have to reach out. (Re)connect online and then consider setting up a get-together with former colleagues. Being outgoing and organized is a quick way to get recognized — a factor that’s sure to pay off in the future.

In-person meetings always go farther than a phone call ever could. For HR managers who work at large, global businesses, it?€™s nearly impossible to meet candidates face to face. But if you?€™re an executive and someone local is asking to meet up, it?€™s a great activity to make time for. I recently heard about a young job seeker who wanted to relocate and found out the local director at her dream firm had gone to a competing high school. That connection alone (pointed out in an e-mail she sent him when she happened to be in town) got her in the door and ultimately, the job itself.

5. It Can?€™t Hurt to Ask

Given the professional nature of company networks, it?€™s more common and expected for the topic of job openings and hiring to come up. Don?€™t be afraid to ask your connections how they got their newest job, why they left a company, or if they would be willing to make an introduction for you. Understand that these networks create mutual relationships, so be sure to offer connections, guidance and thoughts to others — engendering good will when it comes to a professional network goes a long way.

A woman my company works with has had previous high profile jobs in her field. As a result, many people know her and ask her for favors. The one she tells us she always obliges is giving honest answers to people who are considering going to work for her previous companies. Often these connections come through people she may need a favor from someday too, so it?€™s a valuable practice to help past companies find great talent, even though she’s already left.

>4 Reasons the Updated iPhone is Good for Business


This post originally appeared on the American Express OPEN Forum, where Mashable regularly contributes articles about leveraging social media and technology in small business.

A new version of the iPhone hit Apple stores all over the country this week, and while none of its new features are strictly for business users, we can already think of a myriad of great ways business users can use the device that weren’t possible until now.

Note that a couple of these are also available to owners of the previous model (iPhone 3GS) via a software update, but if you want the whole suite of new features in the software, you’ll want to grab the latest hardware, too.

1. Video Calls

The most touted feature of the iPhone 4 is a video calling mode called FaceTime. Just one tap on the screen will connect you with any other iPhone 4 user for a virtual face-to-face conversation using the device’s new front-facing camera ?€” provided you’re both connected to Wi-Fi hotspots.

3G calling capability is expected next year, though it’s not clear whether or not you’ll have to buy a new model to do that. We’re guessing you won’t; it should just be a software update once AT&T’s cellular data network is up to the task.

Talking to clients or partners face-to-face instead of just hearing one another’s voices can be a major boon if you’re trying to build and maintain strong relationships, especially over long distances. Sure, you could do video calls on services like Skype before, but it just got a lot easier with the new iPhone.

2. Unified E-mail Inbox

Depending on what kind of business you’re trying to run, you might end up with multiple e-mail addresses to check. Even if it’s just your personal and your work account, it’s hard to keep it all straight sometimes. Previously the iPhone wasn’t very helpful on this front, because it wouldn’t display e-mails from different accounts in the same inbox.

That’s changed with iOS 4, the new operating system software freely available for the iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4. Now you can view your account inboxes individually or all together in one.

Additionally, e-mail conversations are sorted by “thread.” That means that when you receive 20 replies to a single e-mail, your inbox will have a link to a thread of messages in the conversation instead of throwing all 20 out in front, drowning out other e-mails.

Both new e-mail features are welcome additions for business users who deal with a lot of e-mail coming in from many different places.

3. Better Battery Life

The iPhone 4’s battery life is significantly better than that of the iPhone 3GS or either of its predecessors. The 3GS would run out of juice after a long day of flights, layovers and meetings. Not so with the iPhone 4, which gets an astounding 300 hours of life when on standby, and 9 hours of 3G talk time.

Apple accomplished this despite added features and increased performance by installing a much larger battery in the device. It won’t be a night-and-day difference, but you’ll still be happy with it on long trips.

4. Better Enterprise Support

Apple has updated the iPhone operating system with improved enterprise features that its customers in the business world have requested time and again.

Those updates include features like wireless app distribution and mobile device management, along with SSL VPN support. Further, data protection of business-critical information is improved by protecting e-mails and attachments stored on the phone by using the device passcode as an encryption key.

Perhaps most notably, Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 is now supported, and the phone can handle multiple Exchange accounts, which quite a few executives and medium business owners use.

It’s still not a BlackBerry, but the iPhone is closer than it has ever been. Note that these enterprise features will also work on the iPhone 3GS or 3G if you upgrade them to iOS 4.

These new features have certainly enhanced the iPhone’s appeal to business owners. Will these new offerings persuade you to purchase an iPhone 4 for your business needs? Let us know in the comments below.

>Can Robots Run the News?


News Robot Image

To the chagrin of sports reporters everywhere, a team from Northwestern University’s engineering and journalism schools has created a program that automatically generates sports news stories. Stats Monkey uses the box score and play-by-play — even quotes, if they’re available online — to compile articles that follow one of the system’s pre-defined narrative arcs.

Despite the lack of human involvement in this process, New York Times columnist David Carr delivered a verdict of “not-that-terrible” on the result. A company called Narrative Science has even licensed the Stat Monkey software and now provides automated stories to news outlets, including the Big Ten Network.

Reporting and writing, though possibly the most disconcerting, aren’t the only newsroom tasks that are increasingly being handed off to computers. Here’s a look at some other journalistic duties being outsourced to A.I. and whether or not they are ready for prime time.

Editorial Automation

Instead of copy editors making the final call on how to headline articles at The Huffington Post, computers run an automated test period with two options. The headline that gets the best response from readers sticks.

The process of finding the content itself is also becoming more automated. Instead of editors trolling for the best stories to post on their websites, some news sources employ algorithmic systems to decide which stories to put on their pages and when. And another project from Northwestern University, News at Seven, has been compiling information on the web to create automated newscasts since 2006.

A company called Demand Media, though not a traditional news outlet, is probably most well-known for using automated computer processes to help create content. It uses an algorithm to generate headlines that will do the best in search engines and be most appealing to advertisers. Once the headline is generated, a pool of freelancers can sign up to write or create a video of the story for about $25. More than 10,000 freelancers create about 6,000 pieces of content every day. One of the most popular sites Demand Media produces is, which anyone who uses a search engine knows is often successful in launching content to the top of results — so successful, in fact, that Google seems to be interested in creating a similar model.

The Pros and Cons of Computational Journalism

News Search ImageProponents of what some call “computational journalism” argue that there are many upsides for computer involvement in news tasks. Computers can more accurately and efficiently find patterns in data. They can alert journalists to what’s new, create visualizations and timelines, track sources, and interact with readers. Invaluable news resources like The Washington Post’s database of congressional voting wouldn’t be possible without computer automation.

Another upside is that automating news tasks is more efficient and profitable. Narrative Science doesn’t need to pay a reporter or even buy a game ticket in order to sell an article about a sporting event. They could produce and sell an article on every little league game in the country without substantially increasing their overhead costs (provided they have a reliable source of game data, of course). On a similar note, by catering to search engines and advertisers, Demand Media has, not surprisingly, demonstrated a potential to sell a lot of advertising. They’re expecting an annual revenue of about $250 million.

But, as the once fully automated blog Techmeme found out, there are also limits to what computers can accomplish without real, flesh-and-blood reporters. The blog analyzes the way sites link together in order to determine what is newsworthy. In the beginning, the automated posts to the blog were unedited, but after some embarrassing headlines (including one about Anna Nicole Smith’s hospitalization posted after she had already been declared dead), the blog founder announced in a post entitled “Guess what? Automated News Doesn’t Quite Work” that he would be hiring a human editor.

And while Carr was impressed with the automatic article that Stats Monkey produced on a playoff game between the Angels and the Red Sox, he also noted that the computer program missed the most important detail: That the winning team went on to play the Yankees for the championship.

While automatic news generators do a great job of compiling information that other people put online, those people still need to put it online. According to a 2010 Pew Research Center Study that tracked several news threads, 83% of content was essentially repetitive. Of the 17% of “news” that actually contained new information, nearly all of it came from traditional media outlets — a.k.a. people.

>10 Cool Facebook Status Tips and Tricks


With Facebook’s ever-changing layout, and the fact that other social sites are encroaching on its real-time update strangle-hold, it’s easy to forget that there are some pretty nifty tricks you can pull using your humble Facebook status.

We’ve pulled together 10 great how-to tips that will help you get the most out of your status update, from official features to apps, Easter eggs, jokes and more.

Perfect for newer Facebook users, or anyone who is looking for a refresher, read on and let us know the ones you like in the comments below.

1. HOW TO: Add a Dislike Option to Your Status Update

“Like” buttons are everywhere on Facebook, and they’re everywhere on the web. But what if you want to update your status or share something that your friends can “dislike?” We know, your friends can choose to “comment” on your post, but where’s the fun in that?

The clever Status Magic Facebook app can add a dislike button to any status updates posted via the app. And if you wanted to really mix it up you can actually customize the second emotion to anything, such as “love,” “hate,” “disagree” or even “LOLs.”

2. HOW TO: Hide Status Updates From Certain People

Using Facebook’s general privacy settings (find these by hitting “account” on the top right of a Facebook page) you can select whether everyone, just friends or friends of friends can see your status updates. However, there is a way to narrow those options down even further.

You can select specific friend lists to see your status (relevant for work, special interest groups, etc.) or even individual people by name, which is useful for anyone organizing a surprise party.

To take advantage of these options, click the padlock icon just below your “what’s on your mind” box on your wall and a drop down menu should appear. Selecting “customize” will bring up more options such as “make this visible to” and “hide from” with the option to make your selection a default.

3. HOW TO: Pre-Schedule Status Updates

While SocialOomph, Sendible and HootSuite offer the same kind of service, the simplest way to schedule Facebook status updates is by using the easy, free Later Bro service.

Just sign in with Facebook Connect, select your time zone, type in what it is you’d like to say, set the calendar and clock to when you’d like to say it, and presto!

4. HOW TO: Tag People in Your Status Updates

This was quite a big deal when it was announced this past September, but from the amount of searches on the topic “how can I make someone’s name go blue in a Facebook status?” it seems it’s not universally known.

To mention someone in a status update just type “@” (a la Twitter) in the status bar and start typing their name as it appears on Facebook. An auto-generated list will then come up with people in your social circle whose name starts with the letters you’ve typed. The feature also works with pages, brands, events and companies.

Hit the name you want, complete the update, click share and the name will become a hyperlink (you won’t see the @ symbol) and will appear in blue text.

5. HOW TO: Add Symbols to Your Facebook Status

Although there are plenty of emoticons that work with Facebook Chat, typing “:)” into Facebook’s status bar will not magically transform into a smiley yellow face. In fact, the only symbol you can create in a Facebook status update through the shortcut keys is a ?™?, by typing “<3.”

While this won’t bother many Facebook users, others more used to punctuating their missives can copy and paste web-happy, universal symbols into the box, as you can see in the screengrab above.

PC users can also access some symbols by hitting “alt” + various number combinations (on a numerical keypad). So, while smileys are yet to hit Facebook statuses, you can annoy or amuse your buddies with symbols right now.

6. HOW TO: Turn Your Status Updates Into a Word Cloud

There’s a really fun way to visualize anyone’s status updates (even an entire country’s) as a word cloud. The <a href="
?id=233422326462″ target=”_blank”>Status Analyzer 3D app will look at what it is you’ve been chatting about lately and generate a list, and then a pretty, colorful, animated cloud as pictured above.

You can share the results with others on the social networking site by posting it to your friends’ walls or by adding it to your profile.

7. HOW TO: Have Fun With Facebook’s Humorous Language Options

While you can always change your setting into more sensible alternative languages, the site offers a couple of fun linguistic Easter eggs.

You can chose to have Facebook display upside down English, or, for anyone feeling a little salty, in “pirate.” Pirate essentially turns your status into your “plank,” your attachments into “loot” and instead of “share” it offers the option to “blabber t’ yer mates.”

Sadly, anything you type in the status bar won’t be upside down, or pirate-y. But with the use of some external sites you can achieve the same effect. and are just two examples of sites that can flip your text, while the Talk Like a Pirate Day site can help you with your pirate translations.

8. HOW TO: See Status Updates From Around the World

If you want to get a glimpse of the thoughts of Facebook users from around the world’s, head over to OpenBook.

Created by three San Fran web developers with a serious privacy message in mind, the site aggregates the status updates of everyone whose privacy levels are set to “everyone.”

You can narrow your searchable results down by gender and keywords to find out what people are saying about a certain topic. Or you can just browse the recent searches.

9. HOW TO: See Your Status Update Stats

Have you ever wondered how many times you have updated your status on Facebook? The Facebook app Status Statistics, can tell you this and more.

The app analyzes your updates and gives you a tidy list of how many you’ve written, the average word count and how many times a day you post. In addition, it generates a graph that shows you what time of day or what days of the week you normally update.

Old statuses are also searchable via the app, so you can find that witty retort you made back in November 2009 without having to scroll back through your history.

10. HOW TO: Play a Trick On Your Friends in Your Status Update

We have a funny one to end on — a way to play an amusing trick on your Facebook buddies.

This clever link “; looks like it could be a URL for anyone’s Facebook profile, actually takes anyone logged into Facebook to their own profile page.

If you try it out, be sure to remove the link preview that Facebook auto-ads. Have fun, and don’t be too mean…

>Day Trading Blogs – 12 Features Of An Excellent Blog Day Trading Blogs – 12 Features Of An Excellent Blog


At one point of time, emails caught everyone’s fancy as the quickest way to get in touch with one another, but now even they have become passe. The latest fad is “blogging”! There are blogging sites concerning everything under the sun–education, shopping, entertainment, sports, employment, business, and so much more! So, why not a blog on day trading?

Let us take a look at some of the features of a blog on day trading, starting with the definition of what a “blog” actually means–

(1) The real term is “weblog”, which has been shortened to “blog”. It is similar to a blackboard with matter written on it with white chalk, for public display. In this case, the blackboard is substituted with an online message board where opinions are expressed by individuals for everyone to read.

(2) To be able to view the blogs posted on various sites, one has to sign up for memberships on each one of them. Entry into the web site is via a password.

(3) A blogging web site provides a common platform for people with similar interests to come together and share views and reviews. The topics could be anything, ranging from movie stars and characters in soap operas to strong opinions on articles published in newspapers and social issues! If it is a blog on day trading, investors and brokers can share detailed information regarding the stock market trends. There are many more people to interact with, which would not have been possible in a physical setting.

(4) The primary intention of any blogging web site is to supply a reader with necessary tools and materials for whatever reason. Of course, what has to be checked is that blogging does not become a gateway to not-so-accepted forms of communicating, such as abuse and hurt.

(5) With so many programs and tools coming up to help out bloggers (business owners and personal users), a new problem has cropped up, especially for companies. Their HR departments and internal security divisions are finding it difficult to come up with an Acceptable Usage Policy (AUP) concerning blogging.

(6) Each organization has its own AUP regarding blogging, and users will have to stay within the constraints set by the policy. This type of policy is vital where something like a blog for day trading is concerned, since so much of information is being passed around.

(7) The AUP comes into force only where technology related to peer-to-peer communication, instant messaging and email is concerned. It involves any web-based communication process. But whether the employees can actually read blogs or post blogs, is something that can be decided only by the organization employing them.

(8) Coming to a blog on day trading, companies have to be clear-cut about company policies. Employees should not be blogging without prior permission. In case they should express opinions strongly disagreeing with what is stated on another blog, it could escalate into a blogging war! The company management will then be held liable for the views expressed.

(9) That is why AUP looks after the financial and legal aspects related to day trading blogs. With screening software in place, it should be easy to find out when employees use the Internet and which sites they visit. Thus, the employees of an organization are kept away from trading blogs as well as political blogs.

(10) Web sites are set up by individuals, or even companies themselves. If the blogger is not careful about his/her comments, there is the possibility of generating a lot of bitter feelings among other users who are posting their opinions or responding to others’ comments or just reading the views expressed by bloggers in general.

(11) There are some people who love to express their opinions, and follow it up with personal identification. Those who read the blog on day trading and notice those identities, may get influenced where major decisions are concerned. What if one blogger is warning another to stay away from a particular corporate concern which is involved with day trading? This is like inviting legal problems for his/her own company, and financial ruin for the other!

(12) Despite all the drawbacks, a blog on day trading is here to stay. A site like this is an effective marketing tool, since it displays tips concerning financial advises and credit building.

A web log, also known as a “blog” for short, is like an online diary or journal for some, on online multimedia center, article or news announcer and more to others. Basically text-based, blogs are easy to update with posts, and depending upon the type of blog, fairly easy to maintain.

If you choose to set up your own blog with software in your web hosting package, for example, you generally chose a WordPress blog. WordPress offers a variety of templates, however, not all templates are compatible with all plug-ins or modules you may want to incorporate into your blog like RSS (Really Simple Syndication) feeds.

No Experience Necessary

Businesses and individuals share stories about trips to in-depth discussions about world politics. And as an added bonus, most blogs even allow website visitors, also known as bloggers, to post their own replies to your blog content or entries, leaving feedback for the blog host to approve or delete as he or she sees fit.

– Customizable blog templates that can be helpful for creating an attractive display of your content quick and easy.

>Blogging Directories – Great Traffic Venues


If you want to have more people visit your blog, there are plenty of blog directories on the Internet that you can submit your blog to in order to attract and increase traffic. With the abundance of blogs available, the idea is to submit as wisely as possible as to prevent your blog disappearing in an Ocean Of Blogs.  Here are a few guidelines:

Topic:  Most blog directories are listed by the topics that submitted blogs that cover.  Be as accurate as possible, and when give the chance to choose sub-topics, do so.

Tags:  Goes without saying. When you have the opportunity to tag your blog, fill in all the blank spaces!

Quality Blog Directories:   There are always a number of directories that seem to be well-known for quality submissions and standards.  It may require more time than you planned, but the results are worth it.  For one, Blog Catalog is a free blog directory with numerous categories such as career and jobs, writing, Iraq, and others. It has features such as featured blogs, search blogs, and look into improving your blogging.  It is a great way to promote your own blog.  Another great place to add your blog is  Not only do they have an extensive list of categories with sub categories, you can get your blog reviewed. For the most popular blogs, it shows the amount of hits that blogs have and if they have any reviews. As well as listing by category, the blogs are also listed by location.

Blog Directories with RSS Submissions: RSSTop55- Best Blog Directory And RSS Submission Sites is a combination of blog directory submission and RSS submission.  There are paid submissions, if you desire, but there are plenty of free submissions as well. These blog directories have standards, and can rate your blog.  Don?€™t overlook the power of RSS.  Those with readers may prefer to subscribe to your blog rather than bookmark it.  Submit your Blog RSS every chance you have to maximize your reader base.

You never know what you will find when you browsing through the directories, and you may just find out information that you never knew. Some of the blog directories offer chat features as well, so that you can meet other people easily. If that isn?€™t your style, reviewing other blogs just very well may be. Some directories encourage members to review blogs.  This is a great way to mingle, meet other bloggers, get exposed to other blogging methods and tips, and even inspire and be inspired by other blogger?€™s content.

Manual or Automatic Submission: Often heard is the question of which one, manual or automatic submission of my blog?  Both could be of advantage and you don?€™t mind spending for paid submission.   Automatic submission may introduce your blog to the world quicker, and this is fine.  Manual submission has the advantage of giving you first-hand experience of what each directory is really all about: its features, it?€™s content, resources offered you may want to try out, and other areas of interest to you.  You may want to return or not return to a particular directory to submit another blog someday, knowing it will be reviewed, and has a clear place in the categories.

In summary, one way to generate traffic to your blog is make sure it is seen!  Submit, to at least, quality directories, choose topics and categories with care, and review other blogs!  Happy Blogging!
