Just the job Looking out for a new job? LinkedIn is a professional networking site that allows you to showcase your CV to prospective employers, and even research companies you’re interested in working for. People can also endorse you for the skills you have and recommend you for jobs to their own network of contacts. uk.linkedin.com

Get tumblring Digital scrapbook Pinterest allows you to collate images and inspiration for almost anything. You can have separate ‘mood boards’ for projects like planting your garden or redecorating a room, as well as gathering ideas for things like kids’ parties. gb.pinterest.com

Party planning For a super-fast, fun way to organise a social event get friends and family to download the WhatsApp Messenger app. You can send them links of the venues you like, pics of the dress you’re planning to wear, or even a video of a great band you want to book. Even better, it’s all free if you’re connected to wi-f! whatsapp.com

Whether you love Eastenders or are mad on history, Tumblr makes it easy to share pics and videos with other fans or like-minded people all in one place. tumblr.com

Snap happy If you’re going to a wedding or summer party, why not set up a group on photosharing site Flickr? Afterwards, get everyone to upload their photos so they’re all in one place. Each account has space for over 500,000 images. flickr.com

App & away… All of these sites have free apps that let you access them on iPhones or Android phone – so you can log on and use them wherever you are 98 | ASDA.COM/MAGAZINE | JUNE 2014
