…perhaps you’ve heard of it before, but are not quite sure what it means.
Social networking is the grouping of individuals into specific groups, like small rural communities or a neighborhood subdivision, or in my case, legal and insurance professionals. Although social networking is possible in person, especially in the workplace, it is becoming most popular online. This is because unlike most workplaces, the internet is filled with millions of individuals who are looking to meet other people, to gather and share first-hand information and experiences about any number of topics. . . what works in your law practice, legal updates, verdicts, mediation success stories, Medicare updates and even golf!!
When it comes to online social networking, websites are commonly used (www.adjmediator.wordpress.com). These websites are known as social sites. Social networking websites function like an online community of internet users. Depending on the website, many of these online community members share common interests such as business networking and education. Once you are granted access to a social networking website you can begin to socialize. This socialization may include reading the profile pages of other members and possibly even contacting them.
The relationships that you can make are just one of the many benefits to social networking online. Not only will you make new relationships, but you just might learn a thing or two about new cultures or new mediation paradigms and learning is always a good thing.
After learning about social networking and developing a comfort level, I hope you will consider joining my social networking site (Blog) www.adjmediator.wordpress.com.
