Engineers and Social Media

Most engineers that I know are extremely busy people.  They don’t have time to be scanning the “wall” for something of interest, or to be “tweeting” about what was on the lunch menu.  The idea of social media tends to make them think of a sixteen year old Social Mediawith their laptop open, typing away with one hand while texting on their cell with the other, trying to keep up with the latest romance or breakup, which star is hot, and what song is at the top of the charts. 

But has social media reached a point where it is more sophisticated than that?  Is there real value in networking and community for a Design Engineer?  Is there information, and are there links to solutions for technical problems readily available within the social web experience?

At PBC Linear, we are of course involved in social marketing and social media like most B2B companies in today’s world, but our goal isn’t to be social just for the sake of being social.  We want to provide you with the latest news in bearing innovation and application, technical solutions for linear motion, and hands on answers to real world motion control problems in a way that best meets your needs.

With that in mind, send me your comments on your experience with Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, the blog-o-sphere, and whatever other social media outlets you use.  Especially comments on how these mediums have been useful to you in your professional “day job”.  What would you like to see in the realm of social media from a company providing engineered solutions?
