entertainment industry coach question 599: As a parent, how do I find time to use social networking like Facebook?

Great question! Your time is valuable so allocate what works for your life. My suggestion would be 15 minutes at least 2 times per week. This gives you enough time to update your status, reach out to industry connections, and comment and "Like" people's statuses whom you follow.

Facebook can be a real time suck, especially in the beginning when you start searching for people from your past, but it wears off... or not, and if not, have a schedule and keep to it.

I think that social networking is a free, easy, non-threatening way to market yourself and create relationships and should not be neglected as part of your business tool belt.
