I conciser myself pretty internet saavy so when I saw this book I thought I would just download a sample to my Kindle, take a peek, then delete it. What could it possibly teach me that I don't already know?

The answer is: quite a bit.

While this book deals with several forms of social networking, I concentrated on the chapters about LinkedIn. This was a network that I had not tapped into and I didn't realize how powerful it was. When I started the book I had two contacts which were basically friends. As I went through each chapter I followed the suggestions until I had a very good profile. Then I started to look around and realized that there were quite a few people I could connect to. Now my network is growing and since I am just starting out in the job market I got onto LinkedIn just in time. I think it will make a very big difference. I did a Google search of my name and my LinkedIn profile was ranked number two. Number one was my personal website. When people want to find references or information on me, my LinkedIn profile will be one of the first places they go. Now that I have control over it, I will make sure I made the best first impression.

I read a bit about Facebook and decided to keep that site strictly for personal use, but I am now exploring Twitter and I can see how this can really work for me as well. One week ago I would have scoffed at the thought of Twitter as a job tool. Now I know better.

Worth the money. Highly recommended.

"HOW TO FIND A JOB on LINKEDIN, FACEBOOK, TWITTER, MySPACE" is a tremendous book that is not only timely, but practical too because it shows you the nuts and bolts of each major social network of the title and how you can make the most of these networks to get a job. Today, social networking is big and keeps on growing. Here, the authors (Brad & Deb) take you by the hand to let you know about each network and how to make the most of it and potentially find a job. This book has ten chapters, and so I am blogging about this book on my website Great Documents Dot Net ([...]). I hope to share my ideas about each chapter with my blog readers so they can maximize their experience with this book. Kudos to Brad & Deb for a great book!

Testament to just how many social networking sites seem to have popped up in the last few years, Brad and Debra Schepp, husband and wife and co-authors of 18 other books aptly titled their latest book "How to Find a Job on LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, and Other Social Networks".

The 256 page book could not have come out at a better time, given the economy, and the relevance to 9.8% of Americans (and counting).

Taking from the skills undoubtedly sharpened over the last 18 books they wrote, Brad and Debra take a step by step, detailed look into how one can harness the power of social networking specifically to land a job or freelance work.

The book is broken into wisely chosen sections that allow for easy review at a later date, and feature dozens and dozens of snapshots of the interfaces on the various social networks, making it easy for anyone, even tech illiterates, to follow.

Each social networking site covered has the following pieces of information:

* What is the site?
* How do I setup a profile on the site?
* What can the site do for me?
* What niche uses are there for the site?

To provide a bunch of perspectives on that last question, the book integrates a lot more outside advice than you usually find in "how to" books, which I found refreshing.

In addition to the instructive content of the book, Brad and Debra interviewed a dozen or so people who have found success through LinkedIN, Twitter, and so on. I consider myself very fortunate to have been selected among that group, and I offered advice on using LinkedIN to accomplish everything from targeting prospects for sales, all the way to sharing your blog with the 35 million users on the site for massive exposure.

This book delivered what it said it would. It is a good intro to LinkedIn with networking tips on how to find a job as well as get ahead in your current one. It also provides tips on Facebook, Twitter and MySpace. It's a worthwhile read, but don't expect magic... the authors give you the fishing pole, not the fish.
