Telerik Social: new ways to connect to Telerik community

With the introduction of our new Technical Evangelist, Kevin Babcock, Telerik has entered a whole new realm of community involvement: the oft hyped and always time sucking world of social networking. Recall my announcement a few weeks about about Telerik's new Facebook page that allows you to become an official Telerik "fan." We recognize not everyone does Facebook, though, so now we're extending our involvement for those of you not on the Facebook in to other social networks, enabling you can stay current on Telerik happenings and stay connected with other Telerik developers without leaving the comfort of your social network.

Facebook not your thing? How about LinkedIn? We now have a new LinkedIn group just for Telerik developers. I always use LinkedIn as my more "professional" social network, so this is a good place for you to connect with other Telerik developers is a "professional" capacity (where FB may be more of a social connection).

Not in to those social networks? Do you twitter (or is it tweet)? Then make sure you subscribe to Telerik's new Twitter feed. I'm still not sold on Twitter, siding more with Stephen Forte on this issue, but I know tons of you love it. So feed your addiction and follow us. Maybe one day I'll eat crow and twitter myself, but for now, I'll leave it to Kevin and Telerik.

And there you have it. A veritable cornucopia of social networking outlets that can keep you engaged with Telerik and its community. Get plugged-in and start connecting with developers around the world.
