This video features Josh Nankivel, talking about the latest trends in project management (and pitfalls), focusing on collaboration tools and social networking.
Below is a transcript. We are located in National Harbour, Maryland, which is just below Washington, D.C.

Josh Nankivel: Hello everyone! This is Josh from Elizabeth Harrin (respected author of Social Media For Project Managers) is with me.
Elizabeth Harrin: We are very grateful.
Josh Nankivel: I’m going ask her some questions about this. You are also a blogger at PM for Girls.
Elizabeth Harrin: Yes.
Josh Nankivel: You should check that out. You don’t have to go to her website if you don’t already.
Okay, let me ask a few questions about the book. I believe you have some insight into some of the upcoming social media trends.
Elizabeth Harrin: Yes.
Josh Nankivel: Let’s talk a bit about that. What are some of the latest things?
Elizabeth Harrin
I believe we’ll see a shift in that technology that could be helpful for project teams, but it may also be something that hinders people. In the UK, there have been a lot of burglaries as a result people who advertise that they are not available. That technology is still very young and we need to find a way to use it constructively to achieve the best practices.
Josh Nankivel: Privacy is a big issue with these types of services.
Elizabeth Harrin: Yes.
Josh Nankivel: How about general security, but not physical security? You could say that “Hey! I’m going to someplace this weekend,” and then someone knows you’re gone and you get robbed. That’s just one side. How about protecting your online identity so that no one can access information you don’t want?
Elizabeth Harrin: Yes. We should be aware of this because there have been some high-profile cases as well as people who were made redundant due to what they posted on Facebook or online. It’s all about common sense, such as having two profiles.
In my case, Facebook is a social network that I use for my friends. I don’t have any colleagues at work on Facebook and I don’t use it in a professional capacity. My LinkedIn profile is complete and I also have my blog. There are other ways I can reach people professionally.
Josh Nankivel: Yes. It’s something bloggers might forget about, I think.
Elizabeth Harrin: Yes.
Josh Nankivel: We’ve been doing it for a while so when I blog, for example, I’m sometimes talking about something from my past, right? And sometimes I’m writing a negative review of a company or person. You must be aware of what you are writing and ensure that names are changed to protect the innocent.
Elizabeth Harrin: You can do that anonymously or in a general way without saying: “I worked for that person at that company and they caused problems in that project.”
Josh Nankivel: Right, absolutely. Alright! Thank you so much.
Elizabeth Harrin: We are very grateful.
Josh Nankivel: We’ll also put a link to it, so make sure you get a copy and go through it. We are grateful.
Elizabeth Harrin: Thank you.
