This last year I wrote “I’m on LinkedIn — Now What???” which has become a wildly successful book to help professionals wrap their brains around LinkedIn, and figure out what they should do (aside from just logging in to accept invitations).Â How do I know it is wildly successful?Â Because my son just bought one from me a couple of days ago… that’s saying something!
Anyway, this time I’m teaming up with Facebook guru Jesse Stay to write I’m on Facebook — Now What???Â I thought about writing this earlier this year but decided not to because I figured the 30million (at the time) signups on Facebook either (a) didn’t need it, or (b) didn’t/wouldn’t read books.Â I assumed that all/most of them where college kids… assumptions, assumptions.
Obviously, FB has taken the world by storm, and there are a lot more than just college kids looking to get hooked up there.Â People are using it for personal branding, business branding, marketing (books, warez, services, etc.) … and it’s not exclusive to college kids anymore.
It’s also growing quickly, etc. etc. etc. blah blah blah – you already know this stuff.Â It’s hot.
If you are interested in contributing please send an e-mail to my e-mail (Jason @ JibberJobber dot com) with anything you would advice the readers.Â Do you have FB advice?Â Suggestions on how to use it?Â What to do or not do with your profile, applications, privacy issues, etc?Â Do you have any specific examples or case studies of people getting jobs, selling things, etc. on Facebook?Â Send them in!
After reading the book people are going to walk away with ideas and actionable suggestions, not just a history and understanding of FB.
If you are a blogger, or in the media, please shoot me an e-mail and I’ll put you on the list to get an early draft (probably not edited) so we can get your early input, possibly an endorsement, etc.Â We’d like to spread the word as much as possible… if you can help let me know.Â And, the publisher has an affiliate program that offers a lot more than Amazon’s piddly affiliate program.
If you want to get a better idea of the LinkedIn book, to see how it’s marketed, pricing, etc. you can check it out at http://www.HappyAbout.info/linkedinhelp.php.

Jason – I have now read both this book and the linkedIn book. You provide some great information for both a novice and someone who needs a “refresher” thanks! One question – how did you get started with your publishing? If you do not have a chance to respond…you should write a book for those of us who want to get published!
Hi Dr. Rita, thank you for the kind words on the books 🙂
Regarding the book thing, I am not sure I’ll write a book on that but I did a webinar called Write Your Book! You can check it out at http://www.JibberJobber.com/ceo (it is $50) 🙂
