Why I, Too, Killed My LinkedIn Account

Luis Suarez

Is that the main reason why I then went ahead and deleted my LinkedIn profile for good over a week ago? Will I survive as an independent trusted advisor on Social Business & Digital Transformation without having an active LinkedIn profile? Lots of questions looking for an answer, I suppose, but, for now, what I do know is that deleting my LinkedIn identity was an educated and informed personal choice.

LinkedIn Guide for Knowledge Workers

Tony Karrer

I do a lot of presentations where one of the topics is how to use LinkedIn more effectively as part of your knowledge work. In most cases, I will ask for a show of hands: How many of you have a LinkedIn Account? How many of you actively use LinkedIn? How many of you get really high value from LinkedIn? - Now down to 2-5% I am continually surprised by this result ( Getting Value from LinkedIn ). I can't remember how I could get things done without LinkedIn.

Indeed, while re-reading through ‘ Is Twitter Where Connections Go to Die? – One thing I can share with you all is that once I have seen the light of a much smarter way of using Twitter through public lists alone it’s rather tough to go back to anything else for that matter, so I haven’t.

LinkedIn Facebook Twitter - Different Connection Style

Tony Karrer

As a result of my recent change in my Approach to LinkedIn Connections , I've actually met quite a few people who read my blog, but I don't believe had ever commented. They were comfortable connecting with me via LinkedIn and since it offers mutual value it was worth the effort. Interestingly, one of the people who connected to me suggested we might want to do the same on Facebook and Twitter. However, this is not really the case with the way I use Facebook and Twitter.

I Unfriended You On Facebook. Are We Still Friends?

Dan Pontefract

LinkedIn caused havoc as well. By 2006, Twitter had launched and all bets were off on how to distinguish contacts, from friends, to celebrities, to lurkers, to social learners. If you clearly should have been a LinkedIn only acquaintance, I’m looking forward to seeing you over there.

seeking and sense-making

Harold Jarche

I share some things on LinkedIn but use it mostly to loosely connect with others. Twitter lets me connect with many people but the 140 character limit restricts the depth of conversations. How do you make sense of your work?

Social Net-Work-Life Balance

Dan Pontefract

Seeing as it’s been almost 3 years since I’ve been with the likes of Facebook , LinkedIn and Twitter (at various entry dates) I thought it would be interesting to analyze my own personal / professional network to understand if any trends might be occurring.

Twitter and the law of the few

Charlene Croft tipped me to the fact that Twitter is an amplifier for Mavens, Connectors & Salespeople: Twitter is a social networking site predominantly used by individuals who are high-level communicators and organizations/businesses who want to reach those communicators.

Top 10 Tools for Learning 2016

Clark Quinn

Twitter is a go-to. The learning chats I participate in are another way twitter helps. LinkedIn is a way to stay in touch with people, and in particular the L&D Revolution group is where I want to keep the dialog alive about the opportunity. The articles in LinkedIn are occasionally of interest too, and it’s always an education to see who wants to link ;). It’s that time again: Jane Hart is running her 2016 (and 10th!)

Social Media Policy?

Clark Quinn

I determined that LinkedIn was where I should harbor professional connections, so I trimmed my Facebook connections down and offer most anyone connected to elearning to connect to me on LinkedIn. Twitter, of course, is where I follow folks of interest professionally, personally, or even politically. And I use IFTTT to send blog announcements to Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn. So what’s your social media policy?

and what do you do?

Harold Jarche

On Twitter, my current profile says: alternative business consultant & “a keen subversive of the last century’s management and education models”. When my wife is asked what I do for a living, she usually responds that it’s best to ask me directly.

sense-making with social media

Harold Jarche

LinkedIn is a useful professional tool. For example, I use Twitter for quick generation and broad sharing. Blogs are for longer thoughts while Twitter is where I can feel the pulse of the action and am able to follow the most conversations.

The state of influence today: increasing marketing budgets and greater influencer professionalism

Ross Dawson

Friday’s favourites

Harold Jarche

It was an attempt to make my finds on Twitter more explicit, as I noticed I was sharing and viewing a lot of information on Twitter but not doing anything with it. With Twitter, I use the ‘favourite’ function (star) to mark any tweets I wish to review for later.

Social tools and the filter problem

Euen Semple

I just saw someone comment that "Twitter would be improved by better list functionality". For years my only experience of Twitter has been through a list of about a hundred people who I trust to add more signal than noise. The problem at the moment is that in the competition between Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin and the others for our time and attention, they are all beginning to look and feel the same

Similarly, there wasn't just a Twitter conversation, or Second Life event, that happened coincidentally with the course, but rather, these events outside the 'main platform' were construed as part of the course, and comprehended in the course description, relevant links, newsletters, etc.

Open as in commons, not garden

Harold Jarche

I deleted my Facebook account over a year ago, having no more time for this enormous walled garden, and I deleted my LinkedIn account and started to rebuild it last year. Once again, it’s time to put my money where my mouth is.

Tools for Independence

Doc Searls

First, the noise level in my email already rivals that of Facebook ‘s and LinkedIn’s , both of which are thick with notices of interest in friending (or whatever) from people I don’t know or barely know. Kind of like lists in Twitter. LinkedIn, to its credit is an exception here. So I signed up for Google+. I added some friends from the roster already there (my Gmail contacts, I guess).

Reflections on Twitter and social networking

Clark Quinn

I’ve been using Twitter for a number of weeks now, and that, combined with several recent social networking activities prompted this reflection. Twitter is a different story; described as micro-blogging, it’s more immediate, more a pointer. I really appreciated Tony Karrer’s pointer on how to use LinkedIn , by the way.

gamers, artists, and citizens

Harold Jarche

Twitter provides a bit more. Note: This post is a combination of 2 older posts and was originally published on LinkedIn but I moved it back to my blog due to technical issues with LinkedIn. Gamers. Learning is the new literacy. Personal computers are just one example.
