For anyone who groans at the words "networking event" take heart: there's another way. This post defeats the idea that you can only get the network you want by doing the things you hate. Specific strategies for LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter are included.
They may call you a sellout or a hustler, but when it comes to LinkedIn, it pays to be generous with your connections.

This post shows how to get more impressions and clicks for your LinkedIn Company Page by uploading your own images instead of using the default image that is automatically uploaded when you post a link in a status update.
When you think of job seeking using social media, what is the first network that pops into your head? If you didn’t think of LinkedIn immediately, then you’re probably in the minority.
