Searching for what you need using Social Media.

We are all searching for something almost 90% of the time. Either we are searching for our next job, an old friend, new gossip, etc. Even though we are all searching for different things we can all use the same tools to find what we need/want.

Did you know that you can use Social Media for almost all your searching needs? I’m not saying that Google will not still live on because believe me Google is great and knows all. Searching for answers or even trying to find out what’s hot has come into a whole new light with social media. You can use Twitter, Twitter Searches, Friend Feed and much more.

If you are in need of a new job here are some great Social Media sites:

If you are in search of old friends take a look at:

  • Facebook
  • Twitter
  • MySpace
  • Reunion

There are lots of other tools but you won’t want to join every single Social Media network out there. If you do that you will more than likely have problems keeping up with everything. A great site to keep track of what’s going on is FriendFeed. FriendFeed allows you to not only link up with friends but it also allows you to see what they are doing on other networks.
