This week starts with a really interesting site for both job hunters and professional business people. I didn’t really want to fill out yet another professional profile for a job hunting site, especially in view of the fact that I am not hunting for a job; I’m actually quite busy between product development, product launches, servicing existing clients, my SAP project, hiring and training staff – it’s a very busy time for me, so when I was preparing this week’s blog it really was a bit of a strain to fill out yet another series of forms to put together yet another online professional profile.


Once I got through that process with TooStep, though (TooStep.com), it turned out to be a wonderful little gem of professional opportunities to connect far beyond just looking for a job. TooStep has a number of for a that open up conversations or debates over subjects like big ideas, industry topics, current news or trends as well as communities that allow you to make even deeper connections by industry, interest, or alumni networks. This is a very well thought through setting for people who are not just desperately looking for work, but are serious professionals looking to make connections and see what others world-wide are getting into in their fields.


On the job hunt-side of things it has confidential access to over 154 different job sites so it can really streamline your search process and make it easier for companies to find you, so it has strengths there too. All in all, TooStep was a surprisingly interesting find for the global business and workplace communities.


There are quite a few social media connection consolidators out there, or sites that allow others to connect to you on a variety of social media at once, but one of the easiest to use that I have found so far is FullyFollowMe.com. FullyFollowMe really has no bells and whistles – it’s a straightforward connection facilitator for Twitter, LinkedIn, and FaceBook, with the extraordinary advantage of also allowing people to follow your FaceBook pages as well. It’s quick, it’s easy, it’s intuitive, and it is focused. For someone like me it only touches the surface, but for most people out there, it’s the easiest way to share your connectivity that I have found yet.


The next site worth checking into is a site called Multiply.com. Multiply is both an e-commerce site provider and a social networking tool so you can have a social experience while shopping online, a new trend with a number of destination shopping sites in Asia. You can open up a free online store to sell your own products with Multiply and use their built in tools to make it socially engaging, or check out other stores and join the communities already in place.


This next site is not really a social media site, but is a very interesting suite of free tools that dig out some great insights into your Twitter account. TweetGrader.com can really give you information that helps you figure out how your posts are being read and used by your followers. Use it to find out who your biggest re-tweeters are, how your Twitter feed stacks up against the millions of other Twitter users out there, and whether you have any flags or issues about your Twitter feed that you should address to keep on everyone’s good side. It has other tools as well, being powered by HubSpot, but as a free tool suite, it’s definitely worth some regular investigating.


Our final offering this week is Brijj, which is another site that offers both awesome business content and great networking/employment opportunities. Clearly centered around India and the Asian marketplace, Brijj.com has wonderful moderated groups which keeps a lot of the spam and junk posting to a minimum, leaving you with filtered but higher quality content and access to better quality options and groups.

Finding great business content and useful tools for networking is one of the great benefits of social media that you will completely miss out on if you stick to only the top four or five sites, so I hope you find these weekly introductions to great, interesting, and useful social media as inspiration for you to go find more of the thousands of wonderful niche social media out there that can each lift your business and your professional and social life to new heights.
