What are your favorite social media or social networking sites for work-related purposes?



"Facebook and Twitter. Twitter has connected me to many quality contacts that have become vendors, resources and friends. Facebook has connected me to people from the past and newer friends. They are both great ways to connect with people and, most importantly, develop and strengthen relationships."

"Facebook. There are many different groups you can join to network with fellow planners. Some groups have been helpful in site selection,often showcasing different properties. Face­book is a simple way to stay in contact with old and current co-workers and important contacts you may need to call on in the future."

"We are implementing Twitter into events for branding, marketing, PR and for new business leads. We keep discovering new applications every day."
