Put the content in a place where it's likely to be discovered. For example, put it
in a group that's open-access and of interest to your audience to attract the notice

following the place, and (if it's a group) how many are members.
Bookmark content so
that you and others can find it simply by browsing bookmarked items.
Apply tags to the
content or add them in the body of the content by using the #, which is a hash or
pound sign, and following it with the tag, such as #tagging_this. Tags give
other people a way to find things based on the ways your community thinks about
them. You can even follow tags in your streams.
As you collaborate on content, make sure you mark it appropriately. Did someone
answer your question? Mark the answer as Correct. Did a document reach a final
state? Mark it Final or Official. Other people can see these outcomes and use them
to filter results when searching and browsing.
Don't forget that you can make yourself easier to find by adding information
to your profile that other people might be interested in. What are you good at? What
do you know? Add these to your expertise list. For more about profiles, see Set Up Your Profile.
