Social Media for Project Managers

Filed under Books | Posted by PMStudent

While I was in Washington D.C. for the 2010 PMI North America Global Congress I asked author and blogger Elizabeth Harrin of PM4Girls some questions about her new book, “Social Media for Project Managers“.

I focused on two topics in this short interview, emerging trends and privacy.

One of the things in the book is on the new trends in social media.? What are the new things coming up?

Geolocation services like foursqure may have an evolution of that could be useful for project teams in the future.? The technology is somewhat immature still however, and can lead to problems with physical security and privacy.

What about keeping your personal identity online protected?

There have been some high-profile cases of people being made redundant due to something they put on their Facebook page.? People need to use common sense.

Sometimes as bloggers we tend to forget about this because as bloggers, we’ve been doing this for a long time and are used to being rather generic when it comes to blogging.
