One Tweet and your vacation is over. One video on YouTube and you’re suddenly a superstar. One connection made on Linkedin and you have an interview for your dream job. Another click of a button on Facebook and you are reunited with a long lost friend or relative. If you are not active online, you may not be aware of the power and influence of Social Media.
Someone who knows someone who knows someone; that is likely how you met your best friend, secured your last job and found your favourite boutique. Every time you meet someone there is the potential to generate new opportunities. The difference between networking face to face and online is approximately one billion people! Of course, this does not mean that you will automatically generate new opportunities without any effort anymore than if you attended a networking event and chose not to introduce yourself to all in attendance. The power and influence of social media will not be recognized if you do not manage your reputation and connect with others to increase your network and enhance your visibility. The decision to stand out in the crowd or stay lost in the crowd is directly related to success or failure.
