In 2014, our LinkedIn group – by far, the largest global community of people who are interested in Sourcing – reached 28K Members and the Boolean Strings Ning Network reached 7K members. Thanks to all for participating and sharing great content- and Happy Holidays!
The Bi-Weekly Sourcing Chats on the Ning Network, moderated by Master Sourcer David Galley, have been well attended in 2014 and always had great content, appreciated by all.
The Chats are not archived; the content stays up for about a day after the chat is over. (Of course, members are free to come and chat at any time outside of the “official” hours as well.)
Here are a few favorite free tools shared by the members of the Internet Sourcing Community in the last few sessions of 2014 at the Chats. Have you used these tools?

Social Look-up and Contact Info Search:
- Connectifier (it has switched to paid-only for most users who have signed up)
- Full Contact for Gmail
Broadlook’s “Contact Capture” as a Chrome Extension (the free part of the Extension): Capture!
Organize Info while Sourcing: Evernote
