Here are the social networks Dr. Maged Ghoneima mentioned on his session, we, along with him, believe that is important to have an active account on each of these services:
Facebook: with over 600 million users worldwide, Facebook is the biggest social network there is. Users may create a personal profile, add other users as friends, and exchange messages, including automatic notifications when they update their profile. Additionally, users may join common interest user groups, organized by workplace, school or college, or other characteristics.
MUFIX Community on Facebook: LIKE US!
Twitter: a microblogging service that enables its users to send and read messages called “tweets”. Tweets are text-based posts of up to 140 characters displayed on the user’s profile page.
MUFIX Community on Twitter: FOLLOW US!
LinkedIn: a business-oriented social network. It is mainly used for professional networking and can be used to find jobs, people and business opportunities. On LinkedIn, job seekers can review the profiles of hiring managers and discover which of their existing contacts can introduce them, and employers can list jobs and search for potential candidates.

Location-based Services (LBS): a location-based service is an information or entertainment service, accessible with mobile devices through the mobile network and utilizing the ability to make use of the geographical position of the mobile device. LBS include services to identify a location of a person or object, such as discovering the nearest banking cash machine or the whereabouts of a friend or employee. LBS can include mobile commerce when taking the form of coupons or advertising directed at customers based on their current location. They include personalized weather services and even location-based games.
Note that to take full advantage of such services, you need to download the application on a mobile phone with GPS service available.
So, you have created accounts on all of those, wondering what’s next??
Edit your profile with your details, upload your picture- if you did not want to put your picture online, create an avatar and use it as your picture on all of your profiles, some really cool (and free!) services that we recommend using are Yahoo! Avatars, Face Your Manga, Picasso Head, and Doppel Me.
Look for your friends on those networks and add/follow/connect to them! INTERACT! Share your pictures, your thoughts, your ideas! INTERACT! Look for the influential people in the industry on Twitter and follow them, learn from them, and of course, INTERACT!
We hope to see you on ALL of those networks. If you have any question, we are more than glad to help, reach us!
