A social networking service is a platform to build social networks or relations among people who share similar interests, activities, backgrounds or real-life connections. A social network service consists of a representation of each user (often a profile), his or her social links, and a variety of additional services such as career services. 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. Social networking sites allow users to share ideas, pictures, posts, activities, events, and interests with people in their network. Other popular services include Google+, LinkedIn, Instagram, Reddit, Pinterest, Vine and Tumblr.

Share tech news, updates, or what's on your mind.

I am trying to organize a direct selling team, and hope to track down some tried and true selling techniques. But, in today's world, these must involve a discussion of cold calling, texting, using warm-leads, emailing, using Desktop Sharing, etc. (The CRM we use may be Pipeline)

I presume this is a space (Sales Training) that's cluttered with experts, so I hope to learn which ones should be used first and foremost on our list.

Suggestions?

Thanks

Vote for the Most Valuable Expert

It’s time to recognize experts that go above and beyond with helpful solutions and engagement on site. Choose from the top experts in the Hall of Fame or on the right rail of your favorite topic page. Look for the blue “Nominate” button on their profile to vote.

I hear that waiting until the URL for a meeting arrives for first set up WebEx can be time consuming. So, is there a way to do this initialization beforehand?

Thanks.

Although I've tweeted only once or twice, I've had a Twitter account for three or four years. About a year ago I started getting email notifications from Twitter containing a foreign language. I simply deleted them.

Today, for the first time in a long time, I decided I wanted to tweet. When I logged into my account, I couldn't help but notice an unfamiliar photo and an unrecognizable language adjacent to my Twitter login (see screenshot below).

Omitted from the screenshot is the fact that Twitter indicates my location as Saudi Arabia. I live in the United States.

The Twitter site recommends that I change my password, but I'm wondering whether that will be enough. It appears to me as though someone else and I are sharing  a Twitter login. I'm considering deleting my account, but I don't know how and I haven't figured out how to submit  a support request to Twitter.

I am new to social media and was just invited onto a platform called "Alignable." I joined but need to fill out my profile.

Please explain what it is and how large they are?

I like that I am in touch with the organizer, which I think could be helpful as I work towards a press launch of my book.

Please help put it into perspective for me. Is it a good network? Who do they compete with?

Thanks

I lost a URL to a site where you could type the hashtag and find the number of followers.

This way I could see if #Harvey as bigger than #Harvey2017 or #HarveyHurricane.

Does anyone have that free service?

Thanks.

Is posting a message to my entire network as easy as clicking the pencil icon next to Messages, then creating a message with no recipients?

If not, how do I do this?

I installed WhatsApp and need to help someone connect to me. What do I provide?

I do not have an account yet. Where do I sign up?

I also have an iPhone 7. Once I register, do I download the app and just log in?

I need to share my desktop for a presentation, so hopefully, WhatsApp supports screen sharing, like Skype. I have a Mac and want to present a Powerpoint Presentation running in Windows 7 on Parallels.

For this to work, can I install WhatsApp on my Mac? Then, load Parallels, Windows and Powerpoint?

Or, do I need to install WhatsApp on Windows?

Free Tool: Path Explorer

An intuitive utility to help find the CSS path to UI elements on a webpage. These paths are used frequently in a variety of front-end development and QA automation tasks.

One of a set of tools we're offering as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

In a meeting some time back, a comment was thrown on the table that over 88% of companies in the US, with 100+ employees, are using social media.  We don't have any social media presences and are now considering it - we did started setting up just accounts for social media that was mention in that meeting (facebook, tweeter, linkedin, youtube, instagram, pinterest).

We understand this is a vast subject, and maybe complicated, but would greatly appreciated any EE that may have some experience in the topic, share their advice  in:

- what to consider prior.
- which social media get into first.
- how many should we set up in.
- doing this less monies possible (as a start).

Thank you in advance.

I initially created a profile with just first name and last initial because I didn't want anyone finding it as I was working on it.

So,
My URL looks like:  

https://www.linkedin.com/in/michael-t-803ra5sabb7/
              instead of something friendlier like:
https://www.linkedin.com/in/timothyleeyoung/

Is that an issue?

Can I make my linkedin profile private until I'm ready to unveil it?

Thanks

My friend says her MacBook locks up when she start using Dropbox. And neither of us like Google, so Google Drive is out.

"Large": 250 MB or so...

What is a good free platform for large file sharing?

I could delete the file after transferred, if there is a cap on the file space permitted...

It needs to work on Windows also, but mainly Mac.

Thanks.

I need to turn on email alerts to notify me of a new Like or new Follow on Twitter. How do I do this?

And I have the app ruing on my iPhone 6 and get an alert on my cell-phone. If I need to turn this off, how do I do so?

Thanks

I have a book I am coming out with and would like to make it easy for people to click a button or URL and have that open Twitter with a default Tweet I could embed in my doc. If they want to send it as is, great.

Also, can I attach an image to this?

Also, how can  I do this with Facebook also?

I guess a link could easily be pasted but that would include MY Twitter account. Is that desired? Would that mean I need to make the tweet before I can paste it into the PDF?

Thanks.

I have multiple pages but none of my credentials are for my business page.  I have tried my various logins and they all go to the personal page.

I can get to the business page via logging into the personal page but my socialpilot s/w says I have to have the credentials for business page for it to post content to my business fb page.

How can I find out the credentials for my business page?

One of a set of tools we are providing to everyone as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

With other everyday lifestyle 'Watching Movie' is one of my passion. I don't watch all kinds of movies. My choices are specific. So I want to create a 'Collection of my Favorite Movies' in a Database. My queries to the Expert Exchange Communities are :

1. From the scratch how can I 'Publish it Online?' e.g. A Blog Or Website (created free in some free blog/site creating platforms).

2. My purpose is to informing the audience about my favorite movies - which are inspirational, nearest to the reality, based on real events and so many other reasons that can be attracted by any open minded audience. Is my purpose makes any sense?

3. I will provide as much possible information as I can about the movies including posters & screenshots (some may be collected and some are created by myself). Are these will be legal?

4. I have an intention also to put one or more 'Links/URL' to the database that for where I have watched them. Can I?

5. I want to keep a option for the audience to post their valuable 'Comments' on the movies I would mention there. Possible?

6. Finally I would like to confess that my goal is not something like 'Non-Profitable Social Work'. I am a simple middle class person with a limited financial capability. So if I get any legal offer from any legal authority to promote my work with 'Ad's or something profitable may be I will accept the offer. Is there any legal issue with that?

I recall a few years ago that I used a program similar to Skype which allowed me to have private conversations via this tool.

There was some sort of key that I generated on my PC and emailed to the other person, which that person added to this tool. We then have "private" conversations.

Does this sound familiar to anyone? That does tool, or another, offer this today?

Thanks.

I plant to start a political podcast in the near future, but want to plan ahead so it can be successful.

I have lots of questions...

- What is the ideal length? 1 hour per week? Can it vary in length based on length of the content?

- What are some good ways to promote my podcast?

- Are there any income earning opportunities from a podcast with a lot of listeners?

- What are the listenership for some of the more successful podcasts?

- What kinds of "do's" and "don'ts" are there?

I could plan to apply some budget to promotion. If Facebook the best?

Thanks.

I'm working on a project at work and we need to have the social sites added to the project. For example share on Facebook, Twitter, Google+.

We're going to share charts. This is an example https://fred.stlouisfed.org/series/CPIAUCSL
Click on any social links listed and the graph is shared.

How is this done? I've been googling and came across some examples on how to add the buttons but how do I actually share the graph/data?
