Two things announced today, LinkedIn now has the ability to add a header image to your Company’s page and Tumblr gets access to add your About.me link to your account.
LinkedIn Company Pages get Header Image
If your company has a LinkedIn Page then you will now have the ability to add a customised header banner image to your page. If you are going to create a custom banner image, then the dimensions you will need are 646 x 220 pixels, make sure you use these dimensions otherwise your banner will look, well, just a bit awkward!
But wait, that’s not all…
As well as the custom header image, pages now have:
- a streamlined layout,
- improvements made to your status updates

|For those tired of Facebook, there is a new friend in town by the name of Google Plus. It has taken off by storm with over 10 million users signing up the first week. People are now familiar with sights such as MySpace and Facebook, so new users are not uncomfortable with navigating around a new social network. I find that people who are tired with the privacy issues of other social media sites are finding Google+ a refreshing new find.One of the coolest things about Google Plus is the feature known as “Circles”. You can now classify people into certain circles such as “friends”, “work” and “family”. You can read the feeds from everyone with one main feed or you can just read the updates from a certain circle. This is a nice streamline feature so you have the option to just keep up with the feeds of your choice. While in a one circle, you will get notifications below to let you know you have messages from other circles. Also, a great feature of the circles is that when you post a status update it will give you the option of which circles you want the update to post to. You can also select for it to post to a single circle, person or multiple circles. This is perfect if you don’t want your comment to be seen by work aquaintances and only shared with your friends or family. The chat feature is great and you can choose to chat within a certain circle or with the entire group.The streaming of the conversations is awesome with the fact that all new posts will show up at the top of the feeds with no need to search through all the pages to get the latest updates.
Photo sharing is easy and you have the choices of which circles you want to share your photos with. You can just drag and drop photos straight from your desktop into Google Plus, use their upload feature to browse pictures from your computer or upload straight from an Android or IOS app.
Two great features that the other social media sites don’t offer is something called Hangouts and Sparks. Hangouts takes chat to a whole new level with the option to video chat with a group of friends or a circle all on one screen. You will start a hangout and then invite friends or an entire circle to join, however only 10 can video chat at one time. With Sparks you can read content from the web that you are interested in without leaving your social network. Both of these make Google Plus stand out above the rest.
To download Google Plus, go to www.Google.com and type in Google Plus. On the top right hand corner, you will see a red sign up box. Follow the instructions to download Google + to your computer and you are on to a whole new, fresh social network experience.

What is LinkedIn and How is it Beneficial in Today’s Modern Society?
Whether you are the owner of a business or if you are seeking a way to grow your professional network as an individual, LinkedIn is an ideal network that is useful for various purposes, including meeting potential business partners or even obtaining a new job position or career.
How to Use LinkedIn With Social Media
Using LinkedIn with social media is possible by registering for an account and then by connecting all of the current social networking accounts you have (from Facebook to Twitter) to help with sharing your professional updates. This will help to gain traction to your LinkedIn profile which may bring new job opportunities or even help you with meeting new associates and networking contacts.
Who Can Use LinkedIn?
Anyone from an individual looking to build a professional reputation or network to the CEO of a multi-miliion dollar corporation can use LinkedIn and can also benefit from doing so as well. Using LinkedIn is a way to find relevant contacts and potential partners to steer clear from linking up with people who are not involved in the same industry as you.
The Benefits of Using LinkedIn
One of the major benefits of using LinkedIn is the ability to stay in touch with anyone you have worked with in the past week, month, or even in the past decade, regardless of the type of business you had done together. When you use LinkedIn, you are also able to search for potential business partners or networking contacts who may be able to help with expanding your own company. You can use the network to not only promote your personal and professional profile, but also as a tool to help with making introductions to other potential affiliates and future partners or associates as well.
Additionally, when you use LinkedIn, you can make new virtual “connections” with others based on your current networking connections and partners. If you are connected with someone from a fast food corporation who is connected with the CEO of that company, you will be able to request a “connection” between the two of you from your friend who works in the fast food industry. This allows you to bridge the gap and break the ice when you want to present new business ideas or if you have a specific person in mind you would like to connect with relating to your business.
Using LinkedIn allows you to stay in touch with your professional network while keeping your virtual resume and portfolio up-to-date. With consistent updates, you are able to stay relevant and continue to grow your website or business with the help of networking and working with social media within the network itself to help you grow even more.
