Tell Zuckerberg! Does Social Networking 'Work' For You?

Social networks are hot. No doubt. VCs love them. But from the user-perspective they deserve plenty of criticism, too. 60_facebook0113_100x75.jpg

Why do you think the lately-controversial founder of facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, showed up on 60 Minutes Sunday night?

It’s relatively easy to see how social networks are enhancing people’s lives personally, (MySpace, LiveJournal, Twitter), and in terms of individual professional connectivity (LinkedIn). Less clear, is the extent to which — in measurable terms — social networks are enhancing your ability to run your startup better. (Beebo.) Are they?

At my main blog, My Global Career, I’ve set out to understand how such tools can help us all work better. Now, together with Found|READ, I invite you participate in my study, the “State of Social Networking 2008″ – a free, fast and confidential survey about how you are using your social networks.

Doing so enters you into a drawing for an Apple iPhone, or equivalent prize from an Apple store, sponsored by My Global Career.
