  15. Please give us a shoutout and let us know you’re here! #linkedinchat
  16. Joining in for the first time. Lucille from Boston here. #LinkedInChat
  17. Greetings! Tonight's topic: What Are You Doing Differently with #LinkedIn in 2016? & I'll lead the #chat #linkedinchat
  18. @martinjason Welcome! This is a great chat. How long have you been using Linkedin and what has it been like for you? #linkedinchat
  19. First time for me as well. Love finding new Twitter chats. #linkedinchat
  20. @conpsweeney I hate to admit this but I have not thought about it yet. Have been too focused on other social channels! #linkedinchat
  21. A1. I'm going to try publishing posts on LI more this year - so far, so good! #linkedinchat
  22. @conpsweeney Curious what we CAN do differently. I feel like for so long, the ways of using LI have not changed much. #linkedinchat
  23. A1) I'm not using the @LinkedIn app nearly as much this year. I really don't like the changes they made. #linkedinchat
  24. @akenn I have not published on LI in awhile. Is this still as 'in' as it was several months ago? #linkedinchat
  25. #linkedinchat a1: Writing my LinkedIn Publisher articles. 2 Since LinkedIn listen I am working on some exciting LinkedIn Company Page info
  26. If you're thinking about publishing on LI more this year and have in the past, what kind of results have you gotten from it? #linkedinchat
  27. A1 Still using it as a great CRM tool. Connecting, networking Biz Dev #LinkedInChat
  28. A1) I'm going to commit to publishing 2-3 posts per month on LinkedIn this year. More than last yr. #linkedinchat
  29. @conpsweeney A1. Redo my summary. My current one is terrible in light of wanting to pivot within my field. #linkedinchat
  30. @MarisaASan not sure how "in" it is, but seems to help me reach more people than just posting on my co. blog #linkedinchat
  31. Decent number of views and not many shares. Still figuring out the LI formula for getting shares. #linkedinchat  https://twitter.com/marisaasan/status/687079174515879936 
  32. A1. I'd also like to learn how to search for jobs specific to contractors and do that more regularly #linkedinchat
  33. Please use #LinkedInChat in your replies so all can see them! Thanks!
  34. @MarisaASan No. Team @LinkedInHelp was listening in here last week on the #linkedinchat. And they did some awesome follow up with me
  35. a1 on 2016 i plan to Share and post mode articles on my LinkedIn ans engage in more discussions #linkedinchat
  36. @UMN_Yeb15 That reminds me, I should be more active in groups. I've been slacking! I'm too obsessed with Twitter. #linkedinchat
  37. @MarisaASan No problem. @LinkedInExpert is also following up with many of the suggestion we posted on #linkedinchat
  38. @conpsweeney I'm about to graduate this year and I want to have an organized portfolio for potential employers! #linkedinchat
  39. A2) Doing the same thing over and over is the definition of insanity. Esp. on social networks where evolution is critical. #linkedinchat
  40. Q2 I want to optimize my profile and my experience. #LinkedIn is a powerful network. #LinkedInChat
  41. @conpsweeney Difference is needed to correctly articulate my personal brand. At least for me, nothing is LI's fault. #linkedinchat
  42. @erinhessel Research your niche and market segment. For me Hotels is open 24/7 all over the world. #linkedinchat
  43. A2) I want to try to become an Influencer. Think I can do it? #linkedinchat
  44. A2. If I'm going to spend time on social media, I'd like it to be productive! So more time on LI, less time on FB in 2016 #linkedinchat
  45. @MarisaASan yes same for me! I feel like LinkedIn groups are a good way to network in your field and outside, like Twitter #linkedinchat
  46. #linkedinchat a3: Not a major change. Just optimize LinkedIn to reach new goals
  47. @akenn I installed a time mgmt extension on Chrome for this purpose; wasted time quantified = guilt #linkedinchat
  48. A3. pretty big change for me. All I've done with LI in the past is make connections #linkedinchat
  49. Q4) Did changes by #LinkedIn in #2015 cause you to make this change? If so then why? #linkedinchat
  50. A2 in 2015 I was connecting w/ppl on LinkedIn but it never went past that. I dont want 2 bone of those users that jus adds ppl #linkedinchat
  51. A2 I seen LinkedIn as a tool, that I had to learn to use effectively and now I feel better equipped to so that #linkedinchat
  52. Agreed online as well as off line @martinjason @erinhesselink go to as many networking opportunities you can to meet and greet #LinkedInChat
  53. @martinjason @erinhesselink Right on Jason, Erin! I see that many college grads don't start doing that until after graduation. #linkedinchat
  54. @AreMorch @akenn mine is timeStats - displays next to search bar, easy to use #linkedinchat
  55. @MarisaASan @martinjason @erinhesselink Building a LinkedIn profile is my Intro to Hospitality final project when I teach it #linkedinchat
  56. @conpsweeney Any and all changes are good. Doesn't even have to be a new year! Have to do what's best for you :) #linkedinchat
  57. Q6) Are your clients having to make similar changes in #LinkedIn? If so then why? #linkedinchat
  58. A6. I work with a lot of recruiters (I do PR for their biz) - they use LI differently than I do. #linkedinchat
  59. A6) Social selling on LinkedIn is a big deal. Not right tactic for everyone but it's smart for sales ppl to learn. #linkedinchat
  60. A6. I help my clients (e.g. recruiters) think about sharing non-recruiting specific content on LI (and other social media) #linkedinchat
  61. @conpsweeney I'm hoping it keeps me active. To constantly update my portfollio, find new ways to connect, etc. #linkedinchat
  62. A7) My LinkedIn goal for 2016 are to increase value to my connections and digital marketing field through publishing. #linkedinchat
  63. @AreMorch You would fit great in a marketing lecture.If I end up with the classes I want this semester, I can think of a spot. #linkedinchat
  64. RT techauditcom Reasons you *need* Online Reputation Management  http://wp.me/pqwE6-1oH  by SocialWebCafe via dirjournal #SocialCafe
  65. @conpsweeney Is it wrong to not have a specific LinkedIn goal? I like things and I comment where I can. #linkedinchat
  66. #linkedinchat a7: Have some crazy goals for 2016. So changes help me not go Nutz ;)
  67. @MikeHolovacs Depends on why you're there! Even simple goals keep us focused! #linkedinchat
  68. Q8) Will your changes in how you use #LinkedIn affect your results for #2016 ? #linkedinchat
  69. @conpsweeney It's my professional outpost. To borrow from Michael Hyatt, I don't yet have an embassy. #linkedinchat
  70. #linkedinchat a8: Yes. And it will also have a major impact on many Hotels results in #2016
  71. @erinhesselink what type of stories intrigued you most when you studied journalism? I'd start there to fig it out! #linkedinchat
  72. @conpsweeney With changes and new targeted optimized Hotel strategies this will be a great #linkedin year #linkedinchat
  73. Q9) Any last thoughts about your changes in using #Linkedin in #2016 ? #linkedinchat
  74. @MarisaASan I move my columns back and forth depending on what chat I am active in at the time #linkedinchat
  75. @conpsweeney Definitely hoping to continue to build and connect with like minded people. #linkedinchat
  76. Q10) Would anyone else like to share their opinions about using #LinkedIn differently in #2016 ? #linkedinchat
  77. @MarisaASan In Tweetdeck you can just put in the # + chatname in search box and add the column #linkedinchat
  78. A9) My rules 4 @LinkedIn have not changed. 1. Be a connector. 2. Be generous. 3. Be value-driven. 4. Be unique. 5. Be frequent #LinkedInChat
  79. Q11) Are there any final questions for the group about using #LinkedIn differently in # 2016 ? #linkedinchat
  80. Thank you all for joining & participating! My thanks to @LinkedInExpert for inviting me! #linkedinchat
  81. A10) Ask not what @LinkedIn can do for you. Ask what you can do for others there. #LinkedInChat #sorryprezkennedy
  82. @martinjason This year I'd love to see strangers send me customized messages telling me why they want to connect with me. #linkedinchat
  83. @MarisaASan Play around a little with the options there. That is how I figured it out. Now I have way to many columns lol #linkedinchat
  84. I often get the the canned 'I want to add you to my network' Linkedin message & reach out to those people. #linkedinchat
  85. #linkedinchat Next week’s topic is: Developing Leads with LinkedIn Thanks all as always! See you next week!
  86. Just going to spy #getrealchat and #socialcafe but I'll probably just end up tweeting in...
  87. I want to know something about my LI connections and not connect to someone then never talk to them again. #linkedinchat
  88. Welcome to #SocialCafe at our normal-again day/time of Tues at 6p PST / 9p EST Tonight, the wonderful @conpsweeney will be moderating. Yay!

  94. I would love to be with you all (and maybe I am :) ).. On the way to the airport, but trying to tweet when I can (if at all). #SocialCafe
  95. #socialcafe Hi all. First time here. Signing in from NJ with my little assistant ... https://t.co/ERLLJRiKNZ
    #socialcafe Hi all. First time here. Signing in from NJ with my little assistant ... pic.twitter.com/ERLLJRiKNZ
  96. And, don't worry... Deborah is not tweeting while driving. I'm a passenger :) #SocialCafe #NoTweetingWhileDriving #scheduledTweet
  97. A1: The same changes I made last year, honestly... Its always changing, so I'm always changing... #socialcafe
  98. Q2) What caused you to make these changes to your #socialmedia for #2016? #socialcafe
  99. A2: Experience... And the knowledge that if it works once, no guarantee it will work again... #socialcafe
  100. What a great #MillennialTalk ! I'm ready to keep going..I see #socialcafe and #getrealchat are going on and have never done either 🤔
  101. #socialcafe A1: I'm encouraging my clients to incorporate more video.
  102. Going to try and focus on adding multiple dimensions to my blog content (like vid or podcast) #socialcafe  https://twitter.com/conpsweeney/status/687093188734013440 
  103. #socialcafe A2: Video is becoming increasingly popular. Images alone won't cut it. #TrendPrediction
  104. @conpsweeney My focus would be mainly on videos on social such as in FB ads. Informative. Inspiring material. #socialcafe
  105. @conpsweeney Incorporated more user/follower produced content. Upping engagement by giving viewers the floor. #socialcafe
  106. Also, I haven't given up on facebook, but I've basically given up on facebook... #socialcafe
  107. A3: Tweaks here and there, based on trends and what is working for me... It's not ALL gold! #socialcafe
  108. Hey all - be sure to check @commun_it and start building (and creating) those Twitter relationships! #highlyRecommend #socialcafe
  109. @conpsweeney Its transformed the plotting/planning stage and development longer/more personable (meaningful) connections. #socialcafe
  110. The algorithm is now skewed against pages that don't use promoted posts. Since I have time not $$$... Not worth it. @MarisaASan #socialcafe
  111. @MarisaASan @conpsweeney Asking for multiple choice response and then replying quickly and asking for more info has worked well. #socialcafe
  112. @conpsweeney A3: The significance in the chances = TBD. IMO trying new things, keeping things fresh is important. #socialcafe
  113. Q4) Are your clients making changes to their #socialmedia in #2016 as well? #socialcafe
  114. @AgentPalmer @MarisaASan It can be rough to boost posts without second tier stakeholders at the ready to share/like FB content. #socialcafe
  115. my comfort zone is the written word vs the spoken-on-camera word, so huge in terms of personal dev #socialcafe  https://twitter.com/conpsweeney/status/687095691676536833 
  116. Yeah but the other side is I find more interaction on twitter. Its where the conversation seems to be! @SHelmick @MarisaASan #socialcafe
  117. @conpsweeney seeing more gifs, videos and content manipulation with music/photo frames. More creativity as apps simplify it. #socialcafe
  118. @MarisaASan it's been that way for a while... The exception being if you have ppl who share on their profiles with 10k+ friends! #socialcafe
  119. Q5) Last question, any final thoughts or questions on #socialmedia in #2016/ #socialcafe
  120. I'm just running a geek blog with a solid twitter and tumblr and podcast following... @MarisaASan @SHelmick #socialcafe
  121. Hi, I'm late, but I made it. Hi, Deborah and participants. #SocialCafe
  122. Also, most successful pages have seen a drop but were large enough before the changes to weather them. @MarisaASan @SHelmick #socialcafe
  123. @MarisaASan @conpsweeney Very good. Guides the conversation. Permits focus and appears to be "easier" or "quicker" to answer. #socialcafe
  124. @conpsweeney stuck on a conference call - so upset to be missing #socialcafe! may be able to jump in at the end fingers crossed!
  125. @MarisaASan @AgentPalmer Its a power house and I'm excited that it continues to change and grow and add meaning. #socialcafe
  126. Even professionally, I don't see it as the powerhouse it was... Not for conversions, anyway... @SHelmick @MarisaASan #socialcafe
  127. I changed the name of my blog. That name change is now reflected in all of my social media accounts. #SocialCafe  https://twitter.com/conpsweeney/status/687093188734013440 
  128. @MarisaASan @SHelmick I have no $. Most of your growth is assisted with it. Without $$ it's too much work for not enough payoff. #socialcafe
  129. Anyone without a large base before the 2015 and no money to spend doesn't seem to see any growth... @MarisaASan @SHelmick #socialcafe
  130. #socialcafe Thanks for joining everyone! Next week we'll discuss adding followers on #socialmedia !
