Reported the profile, Amy. So sorry this happened, but thank goodness your friend happened to see it. In the days of " fake girlfriends" using a stranger's photo, we've got to become more vigilant in protecting our own images. I would think that Facebook would want to take quick action to stop this.

@ginidietrich @NathanKSmith Tracking virtual employees while who knows how much time on-site employees are spending on Facebook, Amazon or texting their friends? It makes no sense to micromanage people to this degree. As you said, if you've got the right people, get out of the way and trust them to deliver. And, if you've got the right people, tracking their bathroom breaks and keystrokes will surely cause them to go find someone else who will value and trust them.

Something that needed to be said, @dannybrown. How easily the best intentions can take an ugly turn, especially when trying to capitalize on the immediacy of real-time news.

@thebrandbuilder Well said, Olivier.
You can make it private by posting the hangout only to a specific circle or specific people. Only they will know about it.

@hackmanj @Shonali @irenekoehler Hey Joe and Shonali, I've still got mixed feelings, too, about Google+, but it is still too early to call it a hit or a failure. It certainly has made strides beyond anything Google has tried before. The hangouts can be a very interesting tool and as @hackmanj mentions, just plain silly.
Thanks for the mention, Shel. The hangout feature does provide a quick, dead-simple way to connect and catch-up with people. It will be interesting to see how it develops and people find innovative ways to use it. Starting a completely new network gives many of us a chance to rethink our connection strategy, which is pretty exciting unto itself.

@KensViews We so easily get caught up in trying to quantify ROI of training, which sends things sideways in a hurry. The benefits are long-term and don't necessarily demonstrate immediate return for those looking for impact on the bottom-line. The investment should me made expecting a longer term payoff.
By the way, love the blog!

Right on, Ken! I come from a corporate background where I led HR teams for many years. An ongoing commitment to training and professional development (if done well) accomplishes several things, including keeping the team's skills current, learning new skills, strengthening the synergy within the team and acknowledging the value of each team member. Sure, it is an investment and training if often one of the first areas to cut when money is tight, but in a competitive market, having motivated employees and a team that is leveraging the latest best practices may be what makes you stand out.
@turnageb Fair enough. There is no one style that works for everyone. I realize it could be seen as too long, yet there are others who found the context behind the tip helpful as well. I appreciate your feedback. I'm always looking to learn how I can best be helpful.

@tonykarrer Hey Tony, thanks for chiming in. I'm actuallly sitting in the event right now. Yeah, I know - multi-tasking is not always good. I'll definitely read your post between speakers.
@kelvinringold Well said, Kelvin. While some readers may have been around awhile, I hope to be gaining new ones, too. I'd hate for any to think I'm pushing content on them for my own personal benefit. And, if I'm offered a house in the Bahamas in exchange for a post, I'm not sending them to you because I'll be taking the deal myself! :)
@nomalab Thanks so much. You have no idea how much this means to me.
@sue_anne Hey Sue Ane. Thanks for breaking it down so clearly. I'm beginning to rethink this issue based on feedback I'm getting.
@nomalab Nail. Head. Exactly.

@nomalab All good points and much appreciated feedback. I tend to err on the cautious side, especially when it comes to how my actions impact others. I way thinking of people who subscribe to my blog, particularly through email. I hate to think of them opening their email, only to find that I'm promoting an event.
I'll keep your words in mind should I suddenly start receiving gifts of the wine, climate change or handbag variety. :)
@stacyreck Thanks, Stacy. I'm not as concerned about tracking down my license (since I have the receipt for it) as I am disappointed with their apparent use of social media. I was so hopeful at first.

@JosephGier So true. Using it and "getting" it are entirely different things.
@DavidWLocke Thanks for sharing your thoughts - and great suggestion about the comment section. I appreciate it!
