Going to SolidWorks World 2014 and wanna know where to tell others?

Are you going to SolidWorks World 2014 and want to know where you can brag tell others about it?  Once long ago, Linkedin used to have a function that allowed you list events you attended.  No more.  However, Facebook still has such functionality.  So, although you cannot cleanly add SolidWorks World 2014 to your pseudo-resume on Linkedin, you can certainly add it to your social network on Facebook at the SolidWorks World 2014 event page.

Facebook coming to SolidWorks Legion

Linking a blog to Facebook isn’t as easy as linking it to Twitter.  That’s why I haven’t done it up to this point, even though there’s been a page for SolidWorks Legion on Facebook for a couple of years.  Today, I finally did it.  With the publishing of this very post that you are reading right now, I’m testing the success (or failure) of my efforts.  If you are reading this sentence on Facebook (and seeing the SolidWorks Legion logo within the wall posting, as well) then I succeeded. 🙂   Here we go… One.. Two… Three..

SolidWorks is on Facebook

SolidWorks Corp has a Facebook page.  Become a fan to receive updates on SolidWorks related events, news and SolidWorks World.  There are photos, videos, connections to other SolidWorks users.  The page currently has almost 2000 fans as of today.  It is updated about as frequently as their twitter account, with more information previewed.  What?  You didn’t know that SolidWorks has a twitter account?  And that’s not all!  Check out the SolidWorks social connections webpage for details on blogs, flickr, etc.

Brave new world (online)

SolidWorks Corp is doing something well.  They are taking advantage of current and relavent networking technologies, such as Twitter (search #SolidWorks), to promote the software and its users.   In fact, SolidWorks Corp has a substantial online presence.  Some of this is their own doing, some of it by users stepping forward on their own.  There are a multitude of outlets for information and support.  There are forums, blogs, resource sites, networking sites (such as Linkedin and Facebook) .

Even with all this, there are still other interactive online resources.  Who’s checked out the SolidWorks Wikipedia.org article?  I recently made a minor edit to that article.  It can certainly benefit from many more edits.  Or, who’s checked out or contributed to SolidMentor’s Solidwiki?  This is on Ben’s site.  He also has the SolidJott SolidWorks add-in, which is growing rapidly in popularity.  What are your favorite online interactive sites?
