Social Media – What is LinkedIn?

LinkedIn is a business-related social networking site which launched in 2003 it is mainly used for professional networking. As of November 2011, LinkedIn reports more than 135 million registered users in more than 200 countries and territories.

With that many users it must have something going for it. Everyone knows these days that recruiters and companies often do a google search on individuals applying for jobs, so it’s a great place to make sure all your professional experience is up to date and accurate. Businesses should also get on board and take ownership of their company page, this allows individuals to tag them as a place or work and expand the social network.
