Are you on LinkedIn?
LinkedIn grew up as the business social network. White collar, high brow. A place for making business connections and finding a job. It was a niche network that gained traction because it had a focus on business instead of being a place for news or birthday party photos.
This was a place for your serious business face. LOL.
The question is…what has it become?
Welcome to episode 13 of the Social Currency podcast where we get into LinkedIn. We will dig into whether this is a true social media platform, best used for business development or where real people are finding actual jobs...and if you can still find value here.
This is a part 1 of 2 so start here as we unwrap the current state of LinkedIn and join us for part 2 as we expose user feedback on where people are actually finding value.
