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.

Why I left Linkedin

A couple of months back I made the decision to delete my LinkedIn profile, a decision greeted with incredulity from all quarters. What sets LinkedIn apart is that it’s considered to be the professional network; a platform you can use to build your career, not your social life.

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. In Facebook, it's much the same.

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. They never really took off with LinkedIn.

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. I choose people with names that are a bit more unique so that it will be more likely to find them on LinkedIn.

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.
