I only joined Facebook last year but I embraced LinkedIn in 2009. I joined it around the time Jeff Weiner became CEO and it had 46 Million users compared to the 450 Million users it has today. So why did I embrace LinkedIn well before I joined Facebook? I liked that its premise was a professional networking platform and it provided a way to stay connected and informed.
Over the last 2-years I've used LinkedIn more than ever, especially considering our business, Strategic Social Profiles focuses on creating social media profiles and LinkedIn is a key platform we utilise. I'd set a client up on LinkedIn and they were keen to know how to make the most of their newly created profile. So I provided them with an introduction to LinkedIn, let's call it a tailored LinkedIn 101 session.
