Social network sites are web-based services that allow individuals to create a public profile, create a list of users with whom to share connections, and view and cross the connections within the system.

This caught my eye because I needed t0 place sharing buttons in an email this week, as opposed to links to a social media page.

I did it using AddThis - very easy and works perfectly.

Scroll down and click "See All Tools" to get to the email sharing button info.

Currently, it's non-trivial for users to draw the attention of a particular Expert. Let's make it easier for them!

You can set up a Saved Search with email notification so that you receive an email when a user mentions your name in their question. Here's how:
 

1. Create a new Saved Search


From the EE home page, click the "Create a new saved search" button. This is on the far right, and down a bit, and it looks like this:
Create a new Saved Search

2. Set up the details for the Search


Check all the Content Types checkboxes, and enter your name or username as a Keyword. If your name is multi-word (with a space in it), then ensure you change the "All these terms" option to "This exact phrase". If your name or user name is a commonly used word like "database", then see my notes on this at the bottom of the article.
Entering the search keywordsCheck the "Save this search" checkbox near the bottom of the form, and enter a sensible title for the search such as "Mentions of me". Then click Search to save it. If you have any other saved searches at all, then you're not quite done yet though.
Save the search and give it a title

3. Setting the notification precedence


Go back to the EE home page, and click the "View all saved searches" link (just above the "Create a new saved search" button).

Click the upward-pointing chevrons against your newly saved search which has been added to the bottom of the list so that it is moved to the top. The reason for this is that if …

Agreed that the search should include these features! On other competing sites, it's trivial to tag a particular user of the site Facebook-style (Type @ and then start filling in their name and it will suggest a completion, favoring people who have already participated in the question, but allowing you to select anybody to receive the alert).

It seems like functionality that would be relevant here as well and I'm in support!

For a lot of organizations the use of social media is a “can’t live with it and can’t live without it” situation. Risk assessment is conducted to determine the effects of social media. Risk is assessed by identifying threats and vulnerabilities, then determining the likelihood and impact for each risk.

Regarding social media risks, common risks that are mentioned often are as following:

Reputation Damage: An organization’s reputation, brand, and goodwill are an asset to the organization. But if this asset is affected in a negative way, then that organization’s customers no longer wish to conduct business with them.

Information Leakage: If Information held by an organization is impacted in a negative way, it may lead to financial losses.

Data Loss: Any data held by the corporation may be at risk. This includes propriety information or intellectual property.

Piracy and Infringement: Social media is used to advertise the pirated content such as an e-book, any type of software, digital copies of music, movies, and computer based training videos and further social media provide the access links to the IP, which is usually posted in blogs and forums.

Corporate Espionage: Attackers can use social media to directly steal trade secrets or use social media as a vehicle to eventually gain access into the organization to acquire such secrets. That access could be as a result of wayward or disgruntled employee posts.
