Facebook recently recommended that I branch out. Unsure if I should take this as constructive criticism or just a useful tip, I decided to see what this was all about. Turns out that BranchOut is a socially minded networking app that does just that—helps you extend beyond your usual social network and interact with people in your career field. It’s a way to get your various projects noticed. This way, you won’t have to bore all your friends with every single thing you are working on. Wait, is that just me? So, you can promote yourself and see who likes your status update at the same time. Oh, sorry, that must just be me … again.
