Since most of my work is "in the cloud," I often meet and work with people in cyberspace before I spend time with them on earth. I'm so glad I got to have lunch with Marc McCann and Virginia Meadows from my client Global Connections last Friday when I was in State College, PA.

I've aggregated the recent SMART Articles I’ve written about leveraging #LinkedIn. These articles focus on navigating the complexities of three LinkedIn features - company pages, the activity stream, and LinkedIn groups - and complement earlier pieces focused on optimizing LinkedIn profiles, using the LinkedIn bookmarklet, and dealing with the challenges of LinkedIn endorsements. As always, I welcome your comments and questions.
Leveraging LinkedIn effectively requires navigating the complexities of three LinkedIn features: company pages, the activity stream, and LinkedIn groups.

Hey Chicago folks. The Future Business Leaders of America-Phi Beta Lambda will be holding their National Leadership Conference in Chicago and are looking for judges on June 25, 26, 30 and July 1. I did this the last time they were here and it was a good experience. The attached pdf has details and a link to volunteer.

Here are some of my thoughts on whether understanding #socialmedia   sophistication is important and whether there’s value in trying to create a universal measure to assess it. I'd love to hear yours as well.

I am going to Arts Festival again this year. Technically it's a business trip and I'll be on duty as a photographer and social media sharer, but +Rick Bryant has told me I also need to shop! 

Would love to see folks from PA, NY, OH, DE, NJ, DC, MD and VA there. As a nationally-ranked event in a lovely part of the country, I have no doubt you'll enjoy it!

The fun begins in just over a month...

I'm super proud of +Rick Bryant, Carol Baney, Jennifer Shuey, and the rest of the team at the Central Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts for the work they've done to create an impressive Festival in the Cloud that does justice to their top-ranked Festival on Earth. All the strategizing, planning, and execution are paying off. Traffic to the website is through the roof, and the social media activity and engagement are going gangbusters. Let's keep that momentum going through Sunday!

Many people still don't understand the differences between these two types of  social media tags and how they can and should be used on different platforms. Maybe this will help.

My latest Best Thinkers piece for +Social Media Today. I'd love to hear your thoughts. #socialmedia  
In 2009 I created a social media quiz, practically on a whim. Over the years I’ve converted the simple quiz into a more complex assessment of social media sophistication, but it’s still very unsci
