Is there a right way to use social networking tools and a wrong way?  I’d say yes.  I still don’t like it when someone urges people to use Twitter as a support tool.  To me it’s like going to an empty room and yelling “Help I have an issue” and hoping that there is some wacko person who just happens to walk by and hear your yell. 


That said, www.Tweetdeck.com  with a search on #blackhat and #defcon this week and you can learn the buzz around a conference.  That’s not good of course when someone you are following goes to a conference and your follow stream turns into “all conference, all the time” (check out http://www.twalala.com/login or www.twittersnooze.com for such times).  But there are risks of such platforms.  Short urls.  Tricked clicks.  Reputation hijacking.  It’s a scary place out there, so be prepared when folks ask you about the issues.
