How to find Experts with the Social web?

with one comment

  • Wikis: Wikipedia and Knol: authors are often well-known experts
  • Blogs: use specialized engine like Google Blog Search
  • Presentations: use the search form on slideshare
  • Twitter: TOPSY returns results showing you who has been speaking about your keyword the most, on Twitter
  • Linked-In: use the Advanced search to type keywords or browse topics groups
  •  Experts Directories (Q&A service maintained by volunteers)
  •  Whos Talkin searches across many different sites including blogs, social networking sites, news sources, social bookmarking sites, and video and image sites

My opinion: these free tools, whatever their quality, cannot be compared with an extensive search on paid databases (literature, patents, etc.) to identifiy opinion leaders, etc.
