Keep it going

Right away, you can have an impact on your social network by voicing agreement and praise for content and coworkers. It’s easy to do and a great habit to get into.

Like a post

If you find something interesting and valuable, say so. When you "Like" a message, the person who posted the message will receive a notification that you liked it. Use "Like" to indicate agreement with an idea, to acknowledge that you’ve seen a message, or to just let someone know you enjoy what they’re saying.

  1. Click a Group that interests you in the Groups list.

    Tip: Most organizations have an All Company group that you belong to by default and that’s a good starting point.

  2. Browse the list of posts and conversations.

  3. When you see a post or conversation that piques your interest, click Like.

    The Like command

Praise someone

Everybody loves a compliment. When you praise someone, focus especially on messages where employees are sharing business knowledge, skills, or sales successes.

  1. Locate the following row of icons toward the top of the page, and then click Praise to display the Praise dialog box.

  4. It’s a good idea to add other people, such as their manager and their teammates, to notify them as well.

  5. When you're finished, click Post.
