or ask here on bloggy and I’ll try and get to them. I offered to speak on:

1. Facebook is the most private social network – how do we make sure that our photos and videos and jokes are seen only by our friends and not by the boss or our mum? Quick walkthru on setting up groups and  privacy level controls. Keep Facebook Private
2. Social networks and jobs – the fall in classified advertising is at  least partly attributed to the fact that people are looking for other ways to find jobs. Beyond LinkedIn and Facebook – anyone can join “open outsourcing” or “social freelance” sites and pick up a portfolio of work from web design to photography to language translation and so on. what does this “eBay of Jobs” mean to the global financial crisis scarcityof work?  Open Outsourcing
3. Small businesses can now use broadcast channel without the horrendous expense of mainstream advertising. What does a social media marketing campaign look like for a small or hobby business, for example an organic farmer?
4. Social Finance. If the bank manager says no to a loan, turn to a social network. Instead of one person handing over 100 grand, pitch for lenders on “eBay of loans” using a Facebook applicaton – perhaps 1000 people will put in 100 each. Will this break the banks? Social Finance
5. Banning Facebook and Twitter in companies and social media staff guidelines. How are companies dealing with staff screaming about customers on social networks, or posting up derogatory comments about their boss, or calling in sick when they have told their friends online that they have a hangover? The American Military have an interesting approach!  Social Media Staff Guidelines and and unblocking social media at the corporate firewall.

so we’ll see.

My cohort and partner in crime will be Paul Wallbank. Should be fun. Get in your jammies, clean your teeth and if you’re real good, you can stay up to listen. Will finish about 11pm but be available as a podcast later on.
