FIR presents Linked Conversations with Chuck Hester, Episode 19: June 25, 2014
Welcome to the latest episode of Linked Conversations with Chuck Hester.
This episode, I talk about new features on LinkedIn and share a bit of news from my career: I have signed a contract to write my next book: Social Media for the Rest of Us: A Boomer’s Perpsective. I also share an excerpt from my latest blog on LinkedIn that relates to the book: Beware the Nextperts! You can read it here:
This episode’s guest is Craig Newmark, founder of craigslist. While he still considers himself a “customer service rep” for craigslist, most of Craig’s primary focus is craigconnects, which he launched in March 2011. The mission of craigconnects in the short term is to promote and enhance the use of technology and social media to benefit philanthropy and public service. He uses the craigconnects platform to support effective organizations working for veterans and military families, open government, public diplomacy, journalistic ethics and accountability, fact-checking, consumer protection, election protection and voter registration.
It was an honor to talk with Craig Newmark and get his take on social media and “treating someone like they are standing right in front of you!”
