In closing, I just want to say that while social media is a great way to grow your personal/professional brand, don’t ignore the incredible value of face-to-face discussions with likeminded people at professional associations, technical conferences, and other professional minded organizations. The combination of face-to-face and PC-to-PC (social media) can be an unbeatable combination.
