Social Networking For Success

For an entrepreneur, social networking is vital for success. With the rise of websites such as Facebook and LinkedIn, networking is now as easy as clicking a few buttons...

In an article published in the July 21, 2008 New York Times, journalist David Carr includes a quote from Chamath Palihapitiya, vice president of Facebook. Palihapitiya states, “We are not going to help you close a deal, but Facebook is a social utility that is relevant in many contexts, including business. As you get older, there is this huge tapestry of your life, with many inflection points from where you went to school and the jobs you had, and as more and more people connect with you, it rapidly increases the utility.”

During this week, we’ll be sharing clips about the beginnings of online networking, maintaining relationships online, the future of social networking, and how to bring it back to the real world. To begin, we have a clip from Marissa Goodman on networking and success.

To see more clips from Marissa Goodman, listen to her interview in eClips. We’ll be posting a new clip every day this week, so visit our YouTube channel to see them all. If you can’t wait until the clips are on YouTube, explore the networking topics and themes on the eClips site.
