There exists training is using social networking sites for work!
Susan Kreimer has an interesting piece in the “Jobs” section of the Washington Post, Sunday Nov. 1, 2009, “Workers’ critical update: Computer skills”, link here.
We’re familiar with training in ordinary office products (like Microsoft Office, problem tracking systems, etc), but part of the training mentioned here is the use of social networking sites for professional purposes or for sales at work, a concept unknown perhaps as recently as five years ago.
You no longer own the right to your own online presence, if you are in many lines of work. That’s the hidden message, or not so hidden.
