Do You Use LinkedIn?

Post by Nathan Bransford » April 8th, 2011, 12:04 am

LinkedIn made a big announcement this week that they're expanding their share options and are becoming more like Facebook. Part of that was the release of a new share button:

Right now I have four buttons with every post: Twitter, Facebook, StumbleUpon and Reddit.

Do you use LinkedIn to share articles? Do you think I should replace one of the buttons with the LinkedIn button?

I use Twitter, Facebook and StumbleUpon of the ones you've listed. I don't have a LinkedIn account.

I use Linked in for my 'real' job.

Currently I am on a sabbatical as a dive instructor but when I used to work in corporate law there was a really good forum for posting very technical questions and getting great feedback in hours.

I use Twitter and StumbleUpon and very very very rarely Facebook. No LinkedIn.

I joined LinkedIn and tried very hard to restrict my links to the people I know in a writing context. I then watched in horror as it ignored the limits I had set and spammed pretty much everybody I had ever emailed. I know this because it even spammed my own work email address. I see enough annoyed messages on Twitter to suspect it has done the same thing to more than a few others.

It sits there, unused, because I'm scared that if I go anywhere near it, I'll trigger another spam attack.

Not a LinkedIn fan so far.

Never did see much value in LinkIn, or most of the others. I think LinkedIn was supposed to be for "business" contacts, but it never struck me as a very professional appearing site nor did I see how it was much better than just emailing the folks I know. The only social network I really use is Facebook.

I've heard of Linkedin, but I don't know exactly what it is.
