To learn more about the benefits of social networking, I’m currently trying to build up my network on LinkedIn.
I haven’t quite figured out exactly what it’s useful for, though it does feel like there’s something there. Right now, it mostly feels like collecting baseball cards: I have this need to get as many as possible, but I’m not sure what I’m supposed to do with them once I have a complete set. (Maybe, in 30 years, I can sell all my LinkedIn connections on eBay for thousands of dollars? What’s the equivalent of a 1964 Mickey Mantle?)
Anyways, if you’re a member and want to join my experiment, just put me in for a connection. (You can find my email address by searching for my name on LinkedIn.)
Are you using a social networking site? What benefits have you seen from them?Tweet
