Social Media - Facebook and Alums

A new group was recently started on Facebook to connect Time Warner Alumni. This is an interesting exercise since many who are active in the offline Time Life Alumni club are some of the original people at Time, Life, fortune, etc. The Time Warner Alumni group within facebook includes the new media crowd of AOL, New Line Cinema, CNN and other recent acquisitions.

It is a great way to bridge another gap and expand one's network. This group is growing organically from informal relationships. One way to expand your network is to find people within the groups where you have mutual friends. Again, I am a believer in quality vs. quantity of friends on social networks. If you connect with someone find time to follow up to see how you might help each other reach goals or help them on their journey.

I am looking forward to developing new friendships and business relationships among this group.
