Social Networking Sites are changing how we do business

One of the biggest changes the business world has seen lately is the introduction of the host of new social networking sites.  New web technologies are becoming a new part of our everyday activities.  Websites like LinkedIn, Facebook, Plaxo, Twitter, YouTube, and Flickr just to name a few, have thrown us all for a loop.  Professionals everywhere are scrambling to learn quickly how and why to use these sites, build their networks, and spread the word to their contacts so they can connect and utilize the technologies.

I recently attended a training through the Certified Networker Program of Ohio about LinkedIn.  I had already became a self-taught, avid user of LinkedIn prior to the training.  But as a marketing coach I take every opportunity I can to learn from others and hear the challenges others are facing.  I found it helpful to sit in a classroom type setting and learn what questions my colleagues have about social networking and LinkedIn in particular.  What I discovered is that many business owners and professionals are very confused on the new social networking trend.  My goal is to provide helpful information on these new technologies.  Where are you on the scale?  What have been your experiences with these sites so far?
