New webinar (it's already very popular!)
Did you know you can email Facebook users at no charge? Did you know that Twitter direct messages can be quite large? Did you know you could message any Google-Plus member? Stop overpaying for InMails on LinkedIn. Sign up for the new webinar to learn the essential sourcing and recruiting tools and tips on the other three giant social networks.

Dates:  Tuesday, July 21st, 2015, optional Practice Wednesday July 22nd. Seating is limited. Everyone gets the materials to keep and one month of support.

New post: Searching for Persons on the Internet using semantic markup.
Take a look. The post has a CSE to search for G+ profiles. It's possible to easily build other Google custom search engines to look for profiles only.

Dates: lecture July 7th, optional practice July 8th, 2015.
I have added a brand-new tip on uncovering hidden profiles - works in 100%.
Additionally, the webinar explains how to never get restricted on LinkedIn searching, and more. Most of this content is not available elsewhere.

The first presentation got rave reviews. If you missed it, don't miss this one! :)

Everyone who signs up will get the materials and one month of support (whether you attend "live" or not).

Top 25 “Fake” and “What Not” Profiles (new post). It's not a post about fake profiles :) It's an observation about new public LinkedIn pages.

I do ask you to be a little bit careful on  the messages you send out on this one:
Online Security says [https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/public-profile-linkedin-you-exposed-katherine-minkofska-garrigues]

"I do not believe many Linkedin professionals share the "So What" attitude, specifically those who members for years. The argument that our profiles are public because any Linkedin member can view? Faulty logic. Internally it would appear that any Linkedin member can now view, this is a recent development implemented by Linkedin and not viewed favorably by all members. If all is to be public, why bother to log into Linkedin? Not sure Linkedin would be pleased about that. Bye bye selling ad space and so on.... Any security professional would be more than disturbed by such a cavalier attitude. Linkedin members should be as well. Thank you Gary Sharpe for letting us know some actually think like this."
