    Nice post… makes me wonder if the resume is passe. LinkedIn converges the resume, letters of recommendation and work samples, and it’s easier to keep up-to-date than a resume.

    Great post! I tell a number of my clients that the only reason you go onto social networking is so you can get your clients off social networking and have them meet you. With that completely agree with number 4.

    Re number 5: although I agree that connecting twitter to Linked In is a good idea, it’s imperative people link them correctly.  Choose the option to only show tweets with the #li or #in hash tag, otherwise everyone in your network is subjected to the noise of your chit chat and silly tweets which can harm your brand.

    Thanks Jeff

    LinkedIn has a come a long way from just being a CV / Resume database.

    It’s gradually evolving into a powerful network for B2B sales / marketing. It’s going slowly, presumably because large enterprises are taking time to embrace social. One tacky misstep and they’d lose their reputation for trustworthiness.

    LinkedIn can prove an extremely valuable marketing tool, if you’re
    willing to get involved and be proactive. Take some time to look through
    the website, to read what LinkedIn recommends for what works and what
    doesn’t work, and invest the necessary time to craft a strong
    professional profile and to establish your expertise to enjoy marketing
    success on LinkedIn.

    Excellent post as always, Jeff. The one I would add is “givers gain,” a philosophy articulated by Business Networking International founder Ivan Meisner.

    It is just as important to give recommendations to others as it is to solicit them. A former coworker of mine told me that he’d received a job offer largely on the basis of a recommendation I’d given him on LinkedIn.

    Giving positive feedback reflects highly on the issuer, indicating that they are confident (versus undermining), altruistic, and value strong relationships. Plus, you never know when you’ll need a helping hand, so paying it forward will put you in good stead in both dismal and prosperous situations.

    I agree with four out of five of these tips, but strongly believe that you should keep LinkedIn and Twitter separate, unless you only tweet professionally (i.e., no personal tweets) and/or tweet sporadically. It’s one thing to provide your connections with a link to your Twitter handle; it’s something else to subject your followers to a constant stream of Tweets, no matter how great your content is. I’d have advised your readers to be very careful about setting up that link and review your last three months of tweets before raising the curtain on them to a potential employer or client.

    @Frank Anderson, ★ Cannot agree more. Beyond
    reasonable doubt, LinkedIn and Twitter have transformed the way people socially
    connected around the Globe. The Magic Key Word of their unique success is ► ” Convenience” Referral to Ev Williams. Cheers! ★
