    A Few Things to Keep in Mind

    • Introduce yourself with your first #socbizchat tweet. Include your name, job title and organization you work for.
    • Subsequent tweets must start with the question number you are responding to and the #socbizchat hashtag. For example, "@bigbird Q5 Intranets should serve one main purpose: information access #socbizchat"
    • Please don't pitch products or services -- stay knowledge focused.
    • Keep the discussion professional, but informal.
    • Remember that this is a public chat -- be thoughtful.
