Thing 11: Use Lanyrd to network at conferences

While many of the tools we’ve looked at are useful for keeping in contact with people you meet at conferences, Lanyrd is a new service which takes this to a higher level. Rather than just connecting individuals, it uses social media to allow connections to emerge at every stage of the conference. It draws on your existing social networks to help you find conferences, connect with others who are participating, find coverage of events, promote your own coverage and track your history of participating in conferences.

For thing 11 we're asking you to log into Lanyrd and list, or register your participation in, an event. As ever here are the step-by-step instructions. And don't forget to blog about it.

Like all of the tools on 23 Things, even if it’s not immediately obvious that Lanyrd will be something you personally want to use, it’s good to be aware of it and perhaps check back in future. While it may not be popular in your discipline yet, if it becomes so in future, it will be an incredibly powerful tool for networking.
