SocialGrow - Will it be the next big thing?

This tool is being hailed by a lot of power networkers I have spoken to as the next big thing in Social Media. I have not heard a lot about it other than it can "help automate recruiters invitations to connect with candidates across multiple social networks with a few clicks."

If you are a recruiter and are interested in the Alpha release please go to and sign up. Only 500 people will be able to register for the alpha release that is scheduled for February 1st.

If you have any tips, tricks, resources or tools you would like to recommend to the group please contact Susan Fischer at

Monday, January 04, 2010 - The new Url Shortener URL Shortener is a service that takes long URLs and squeezes them into fewer characters to make a link that is easier to share, tweet, or email.

I may be a little bias being one of the developers myself, but I highly recommend using this application to shorten your urls for the following reasons:

  1. URL Shortener was developed by someone you know and network with (chris williams). Knowing the developer personally, you have more access to make suggestions on improvements.

  2. We have a proven track record with custom and out of box products like Launch Pad for Web. You can find out more about this product on the website at
  3. We are accessible on all the social networking sites:

  4. There is an actual company behind this product with a proven track record. You can check out their website yourself at
