7.2 Ways to Get Fired with Social Media

Social Media Tools Could Get you Fired

Last week I had the honor of presenting at Ignite Dallas.  My talk was titled, “7.2 Ways to Get Fired with Social Media.”  My talk was very different than most in that I poked fun as the Human Resources industry and went into character during my 5 minute, 20 slide presentation.  In front of hundreds of strangers and live steaming internet, I hung my ass out on the line.

7.2 Ways to Get Fired with Social Media

I had a great time and met some amazing people.  The bottom line is that networking and building relationships takes time.  People have to get to know people no matter what the medium whether it’s social media, employees at your place of business, or face to face interaction in a new town or city like Dallas.  That’s really what my talk was all about.  Along the way I talked about social media tools from the point of view of an corporate Human Resource professional like TweeterFacebook, Blooging, SSR, and Google.

Take a look at my talk below and sit back and grab some reading materials including your company’s employee handbook and enjoy the ride.
