Listen to Episode #04 - Bring the Best of Your Company to Your Clients with IBM Connections
Listener Q&A Bonus Tip - “In episode #3 you talked about sharing externally on Twitter; how can I share with my team internally… besides filling up everyone’s inboxes with emails?”
This episode's listener question comes from Rebecca.
1) Yes, instead of blasting everyone with updates in emails that will end up in the trash.
2) You can share updates/info/news in IBM Connections in the "Status Update" on your home page.
3) Your network can then jump in to engage and in turn share with their network.
4) To highlight something for specific people in your network, you can use the @mention feature by typing the @ symbol and their name -- which will trigger an @mention alert in their home page view to draw their attention to what you shared.
