It's all about being social these days! There is much value in interacting with our customers, partners, competitors, collaborators, and fellow employees around the world. We can only benefit in all of our objectives by embracing ideas from the many people in the world that have opinions on what we do.
Before I buy anything of value, I first search the internet for customer feedback and recommendations. I do this for books, movies, electronics, cars, just about anything I consider buying. Do you do the same thing? If the feedback from someone with actual experience is positive, I am more likely to seriously consider buying the item myself. If the feedback is overwhelmingly positive from many people, my buying decision gets easier. If the feedback is negative, it helps as well... but only if a clear description of the problem is described and multiple people have experienced the same problem / dissatisfaction.
That, in a nutshell, is the power of social media! And the same is true for free content on the web: If you recommend content that you've read and liked or follow blogs or twitter accounts that provide valuable information, others may follow your lead and read the content as well.
This blog post contains my recommendations for content that is available to keep your skills sharp with DB2 and InfoSphere. I hope that this is a list that you'll save and share.
