Denny Russell of Sherpa Software recently presented a one-hour lunch-and-learn at work, where he shared his experiences and showed how he manages all of his social connections, and not to mention, gather key information that helps drive his everyday life. From free gifts, to discount coupons, to product ideas and inspiration, Denny walked his coworkers through the steps of how to successfully use social media tools like Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn for their own personal benefit. Using these slides, see what he used in his teachings on how to lurk for the purpose of finding useful information for work and life in general, and how to share that same information with others.
