Establishing an Online Presence from Scratch

I have found that many people want to take advantage of the networking opportunities that are available at their fingertips (literally) but they just don't know where to start. This link ( provides some useful information about creating your online brand from scratch.

There's some great info here, however I would strongly disagree with limiting your connections or friends to ONLY people that you know or that you have done business with. As a career networker and author of "How To Talk to Strangers" (A step-by-step guide to Professional Networking), I encourage you to get rid of this type of thinking. It limits you and your ability to establish relationships.

I certainly recommend that you select/accept friend requests or connections with care. Be selective, but please be bold and learn to connect with strangers.
