Okay, like many of my readers I get an invitation to join someone’s network on LinkedIn often.
On the surface it looks like a great place for the business person to hang out, but like so many networks, chambers, associations, it’s also easy to get nothing from it.
I want to start a discussion on this post about what the pros and cons of LinkedIn. I really would love to hear from people who are using LinkedIn for good or bad.
- Please tell me:
- How you use it for business.
- Success stories about connections made
- Horror stories about wasting time
Whatever you want to share – I want to help figure this thing out.
- Some reading material for you:
- Business 2.0 Article
- Guy Kawasaki on LinkedIn
- Business Week on LinkedIn
Update: A reader, Des Walsh, reminded me of Scott Allen’s LinkedIn blog – another great piece of the puzzle.
