  45. 45. A Note on Google+  Google+ is about tying social to search to improve search results based on your social graph.  Businesses will get special features. These roll out in two weeks.  So far, I love the Hangout feature and Circles, but I think it’s hard to figure out how to add people.  If you need an invite, email me!
  46. 46. Tips for Facebook  Don’t use a personal profile or a group for your business; use a page.  Link Facebook to Twitter (and maybe LinkedIn) to save time on posts.  “Like” complimentary businesses and professionals.  Use Facebook ads for granular targeting.  Don’t always post the same things on personal and business pages.
  47. 47. Tips for Twitter  Leave room to be retweeted: 120 instead of 140.  Use TweetDeck or Seismic to manage multiple accounts.  Use HootSuite, SocialOomph, or Vitrue Publisher to automate some posts.  Don’t use an automated message for new followers.  Use a link shortener like bit.ly.
  48. 48. Tips for LinkedIn  Don’t link Twitter to LinkedIn. Use #in.  Set up an RSS feed of your LinkedIn contacts to stay up to date.  Join groups to access more people. Search is biased by connection, so the more you have, the more people you can see in search.  Check your profile often. This is the 1st place your customers and vendors go to check up on you.
  49. 49. Tips for Everything Else  Use Google Reader to collect RSS feeds of all the blogs you like.  Set up a Google News Alert for your name, your company, and your customers.  Make a social media calendar.  Disable most email notifications.  Find secondary sources of content (like IFA Smartbrief).
