As more and more salespeople venture into social selling, more and more questions pop up. While the concept of "social selling" is simple to grasp, reps often get confused about the specifics once they start in earnest.

To address some of these commonly wondered about issues, HubSpot hosted a social selling themed Twitter chat last week. During the #HubSpotSales chat, social selling experts Jill Konrath and Jill Rowley gave their personal definitions of social selling, talked LinkedIn 101, and debated whether sales reps should blog.

The conversation got interesting fast, as evidenced by the recap of the best tweets from the event below.
