Three ways I can use social networking is:

1. to find possible part-time work on Craigslist. I have been told that focus groups or jobs that are very short term are listed on Craigslist.

2. I am interested in finding possible websites that will help me to make easy, quick healthy recipes. I checked out chow.com and found it interesting but not a site that I would visit again. I can use them to help me in find healthy recipes and tips when it comes to preparing food for my family (aunts and 1 mom).

3. I could also maybe get rid of some of the clutter in my apartment and sell or give aways items I no longer use. This will have to take place when I have lots of time.....

If I were to use it in a business application I would use it to exchange ideas on how to better manage the day to day operation of small business. I dream (as I think many of us do) of owning my own business and I would think the possibility of finding people with similar businesses who had been at them for extended periods of time would be invaluable.

I hope everyone has lots of fun exploring... I am still trying to navigate this new and interesting tool. I thought I was doing well with my use of e-mail. Now I will have to work up the nerve to go to facebook, myspace, and u-tube (? is this correct, is it called u-tube?).... I want to know what everyone is talking about. I'll let you know how I do. Take care....

Hullo there! How has putting your toes into the 2.0 waters been going? I hope your explorations into Craigslist helped you find the opportunities you were looking for, and that our video Things tomorrow get you going on YouTube.

Using social networks to connect with other small business owners is common, and if you search for business networks online, you can find many to choose from. Specifically, if you're looking to market home-made art and handicrafts, Etsy is a fantastic resource. It's part sales floor, part marketing tool, and part social network.
