Some businesses, worried that networking too often translates to "Not working," have blocked employee access to social networking sites in the workplace. The bottom line is that social networking sites like Facebook and LinkedIn can serve as your personal PR firm - a hip and efficient way to promote your accomplishments and expertise to the world. They can help you find your dream job and help establish yourself as an expert in your field. They can also help you reconnect with people from your personal and professional past. And, they can be a lot of fun.
