Tips from the CEO of LinkedIn (Free Activity Tracker)

If you are asking what is LinkedIn or have been with LinkedIn for awhile this video/blog is for you.

Back in early March CNN held an interview with the CEO of LinkedIn. Reid Hoffman answered questions on how to use LinkedIn. Notice that in the video there is a comment that FaceBook is not something you should use at work.

I thought it was very interesting how they related what users should be doing in FaceBook and in LinkedIn. Even though most of you probably already knew these tips, I thought it was still nice to hear it from the CEO. You never know, he might leak out some big secret.

What are your thoughts on the video? At this time, I do not have a paid account with LinkedIn. Do you? If so, have you seen any value in it?

Jason Alba is the author of “I’m on LinkedIn…Now What???” book. He offers the “LinkedIn Strategy Activity Tracker” (PDF) for free to help track what to do next.

  • Thank you for your input. Everyone uses Twitter differently so it's hard to say of one person is using it effectively or not.

  • Me too. For me, learning & using Linkedin was easy. It took a while for me to get the 'hang' of using twitter effectivly.

  • Just realized tha I haven't been on LinkedIn as much as I used to. Lately I've been spending my time in Twitter land.
