If you have not realized it already, LinkedIn has well and truly established itself as the de facto standard social networking platform for your professional life. LinkedIn is for professional connections. FaceBook is more for personal connections but for many people like myself professional ones as well.
Slowly, I am connecting with all my professional contacts via LinkedIn and have over 1,000 established connections. Why? It's the one place I can guarantee finding an up to date profile of the people I know and a means of contacting them.
Fort those of you who have connected with me - Welcome. Its great to see that many of you have only recently joined and I am your first connection.
If you have had an invite from me - please accept it. LinkedIn limits the number of invites I can send to about 2,000 and with 15,000 members of this community that restricts me a little!
If you haven't joined, you should. And please, if I have not invited you yet, invite me to connect with you.
You might also like to join the Gurteen Community group on LinkedIn but although it has several hundred members I am not making full use of it as yet.
Oh and take a look at Guy Kawasaki's Ten ways to use LinkedIn.
