Grab a Seat at this Roundtable

Social communities fall into two categories. There are the horizontal networks such as Facebook, MySpace and LinkedIn which provide an excellent platform to stay connected with important contacts, network and share information.

In fact, Strategic Communications Group (Strategic) recently introduced a fan page on Facebook for current staffers, alumni of the agency, prospective employees and other contacts. We plan on sharing much of the professional development content we develop with this important network via Facebook. Check it out at:


The second type of social community is more vertically oriented networks that cater to professionals in a specific industry or a specific discipline. I am an active participate in a number of these vertical communities comprised of marketing, corporate communications and PR professionals, including Gooruze, The Customer Collective and MyRagan.

I recently joined At the Roundtable, a social network aligned with trade magazine Brandweek. So far...so good. The membership is high-quality, and the content produced via blog posts, contributed articles, discussion boards, etc. is strong.
