    What is the best book or video to really learn how to social network?

    What is the best book or video to really learn about all social networks such as twitter, facebook, chime in, stumbleupon, google+, pinterest and klout?

    There are many different websites and videos on tutorials for social networking. Since we are on an Online Article Website, it is very imperative to look at not just one, but many different sources for social networking. I definitely advise to create a twitter, google+ and maybe a linkedIn. There, their pages do have tutorial guidelines to follow to build up your network. For some really good videos, check out the following:

    Twitter networking: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J0xbjIE8cPM

    Facebook networking: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RUnmowztKMQ

    LinkedIn networking: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZVlUwwgOfKw

    This is something I would research on the internet. Books will provide you with very little information that is not technical, and the technical information (actual operation of the website) is usually explained pretty clearly on the social networking site itself. If you are looking to get more out of a social networking site than those around you, then you should google it. If you are only going to use it for the basic uses that your friends, family, etc. use, you should be fine being walked through by the site itself. If you have specific questions like how to post pictures or make comments, ask the people that you know use that site. For any further information before you get started, such as which social networks are right for you, try this link: http://webtrends.about.com/od/socialnet … rk_b_2.htm

    Hi carol.

    I would add that you definitely don't want to spend much money (if any at all) on a book or program about social networking...especially anything in print.  By the time something internet-related gets published and distributed in print form, it's already obsolete.  You'll definitely find the most current info online, and if you can find someone selling something online, then there's a good chance that someone else online is giving away the same info for free...somewhere.

    I think that Hubber ChristyWrites is a great place to start.  For example:

    Hope that helps!  Aloha!

    Lot's of good answers thus far, but I would add online sources like GROVO. I think it is helpful to not only read a few books and jump online to read articles and posts, but I would highly recommend that you jump in and get involved.
    Social networking is a moving target. People are reinventing it every minute. tart trying out somethings on your own and you'll quickly begin to learn and understand what works, what doesn't and which elements of social networking are right for YOU.

    Good Luck, carol7777

      Great response and I think you are right..But you really have to keep up on everything.  However, I do think it is the way to go to get your hubs out.
