TIPS

Twitter maintenance

 

If using Twitter for business purposes, cull your Twitter followers regularly. If someone is following you and a thousand others, but not being followed or not tweeting, block them. Also consider blocking tweeters who are not allied with your business goals or who might leave a negative impression on clients.

 

Patch in

 

LinkedIn has many groups where people voluntarily join to exchange views in discussions, ask and answer questions, and share job leads and news. Many professional societies such as ASHRAE, NFPA, and IEEE have groups. Groups are also centered on topics, such as LEED, Smart Grid, and energy. Go to the Groups section of LinkedIn and use keyword searches to find and join groups of interest to you.
