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. And I consider knowing how to effectively use LinkedIn to be a core Work Literacy.

Developing Leaders in the Facebook Age

CLO Magazine

How we connect — in person, through blogs, Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, or through other methods of online collaboration — says more about us than we may realize. To develop leaders in the Facebook era requires that learning professionals create offerings to enable the proper mix of all these ingredients as well as help to ensure leaders can connect through multiple mediums. A quick glance at someone’s LinkedIn page can provide insights into previous professional experiences, schooling and primary interests. What do we exhibit? Set goals.

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. In Facebook, it's much the same. This really got me thinking. Does that sound bad?

Pre-network with LinkedIn

Tony Karrer

I have to make sure that I get at least as much value from that 3-4 hours as I would from spending the same time using LinkedIn for Networking – and that's tough competition.

Our Take on Google+

E-learning Uncovered

If I were to start over, I could see using Google+ over Facebook or Twitter. JU: I think it’s the best of Twitter plus the best of Facebook. But Google+ also encourages deeper communication by having no character limit and keeping the whole conversation in one place (one strength of Facebook). For now, I see these as advantages that Google+ doesn’t have (yet), so I still plan to use LinkedIn just as much now as before. But I do see one advantage Google+ has over LinkedIn for professional relationship building, and that’s the status updates. But, I don’t.

Facebook Platform

Tony Karrer

Stephen Downes picked up my post on Facebook As a Learning Platform. He commented: To be clear, I do not think that Facebook itself is really a learning environment. I also feel like Facebook is a bit creaky and as Thomas Vanderwal's recent post Facebook for Business or LinkedIn Gets More Valuable points out, as you use Facebook more and have more friends, it seems to get harder to use. All of that said, Facebook is surprising me in terms of how well it works as a platform. Something like the social network operating system , maybe.
