LinkedIn is a professional social networking website with over 200 million members, its a great place to manage your professional identity and to engage with people on a professional level.  So why would you want to how to remove a contact from LinkedIn? People are usually careful about who they connect with on LinkedIn as its not the same as other networks it is usually for work purposes but some people like to be open networkers, and connect with many people, and on LinkedIn these are called LIONs. What is a LinkedIn LION It stands for Linked In Open Networker, it basically means that they will accept invites from anyone, even if they don't know them, where as LinkedIn always used to be the place that you never, ever connected with people you didn't already know.  However things in social networking have changed somewhat since the old days and many people want to grow their networks and reach out to new contacts.  That being said, there are still people that will hit the I don't know this person button and that could get you into trouble on many networks. So, many people [...]

LinkedIn Update, Member Passwords were Hacked – How to change Password

By | June 6th, 2012|Categories: Scams, Social Media|Tags: , , , , , , , |

LinkedIn have now confirmed that some of the passwords were hacked today. Well, what they actually say is "We can confirm that some of the passwords that were compromised correspond to LinkedIn accounts." Members that have accounts associated with the compromised passwords will notice that their LinkedIn account password is no longer valid. These members will also receive an email from LinkedIn with instructions on how to reset their passwords. There will not be any links in these emails. For security reasons, you should never change your password on any website by following a link in an email. These affected members will receive a second email from our Customer Support team providing a bit more context on this situation and why they are being asked to change their passwords. Via .... http://blog.linkedin.com/2012/06/06/linkedin-member-passwords-compromised/ So that is a good thing to remember - never change your password from a link in an email, and don't on this occasion. To confirm they say if you have been compromised you won't be able to log in and LinkedIn are going to send you details, I would assume [...]

The redesign on Empire Avenue – Explained.

By | March 11th, 2012|Categories: Social Media|Tags: , , , , , , , |

I first blogged about Empire avenue 10 months ago - when I had just started. Back then I didn't realise the impact it would have on my social media strategies,  networks and more importantly I that would find a fantastic community of people that now mean a great deal to me. Anyway - I digress... Empire Avenue have relaunched a new design - which is said to engage you more with your social networks. Most people that "play" Empire avenue have always used it to engage and connect with other users, moving that to their other networks.  I think previously that was the problem, that, people that don't play Empire Avenue do not see it this way at all.  Empire avenue for me, is primarily not a game but is a way to connect and engage with a brillant community of "players".  Empire avenue is fun to play but it should also be part of your social media strategy.  It is possible to connect, interact and engage with clients and/or customers, contacts and like-minded people to help and share, when using this tool correctly. Empire [...]

Social networking at its best with Favo.rs

By | December 19th, 2011|Categories: Social Media|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , |

Favo.rs is a social networking platform where users can trade help for free.  Favo.rs officially launched about two weeks ago and as far as I can make out is the work of Adam Rodnitzky, George Aspland and Scott Roberts who are all listed as co-founders. I signed up today for favo.rs and I have enjoyed helping a few people out, and finding out all about it, I think it is going to be a great "help" to all. It is simple to sign up - you can just log in with your Facebook, Linkedin or Twitter and link the others and you simply connect to help others and ask for help. Its a fantastic idea, as sometimes we all need a little assistance, getting that blog seen or a tweet heard, and here you feel no shame in asking for help.  Although most of what I have seen is people helping not asking, I had to look around for people that needed help. When you ask a favor, people can answer you, or broadcast it on their various networks or vouch for [...]

Triberr no longer supports automatic tweeting!

By | November 19th, 2011|Categories: Social Media|Tags: , , , , , , , , , |

What is Triberr? The basics Triberr was created by  Dino Dogan and Dan Cristo. Groups of bloggers create "tribes" where each of them can share each others posts on Twitter.   This used to be Automatic - you would just join a tribe, and every time you published a new post it would go to Triberr and everyone in your tribe would automatically tweet it to their own followers thus creating a larger audience for your website or blog. You could have your account on a manual setting - I know some people did - I used my account as manual - not because I didn't trust the other members of the tribe - I am in in a very close-nit group of great bloggers who can be trusted to post informative, interesting and positive content, however I would log in to Triberr most days and read the blogs that I was sending out and maybe comment or share them to other networking sites. I did this because... A) I had the time, where as others don't B) I want to know what is going through my [...]
