Linkedin: The Early Years

Vincent Wright,

My Linkedin Power Forum is a networking and discussion group about building professional social media networks at ultimate "networker speed". The operative word is speed, not carelessness. - Meaning, openness, not recklessness.

To maximize social networking power and to do so OPENLY - at networker speed - there are problems we must address:

#1. Don't build in the dark.

#2. Don't build without a vision.

#3. Don't build too fast NOR too slow.

#4. Don't build without a written plan.

#5. Don't build without profiting./p>

You can build at "networker speed" on "My Linkedin Power Forum", as long as you:

1. consider our 5 recommendations,
2. introduce yourself to the group,
3. DISCUSS your needs

I was fortunate to create and run a Yahoo-based group focused on Linkedin from February 2005-February 2012.
The group was originally called "My Linkedin Power Forum"...
Between February 2005 and September 2007, we were blessed to have Linkedin's founders as our members (Reid HoffmanKonstantin Guericke, etc.) as well as numerous Linkedin employees covering privacy, member issues, technical issues, and development|innovation, etc.
At its height between February 2005 and September 2007, 8-9,000 members of My Linkedin Power Forum were generating up to 1,700 discussion posts per month.
After 7 years of my running it, the group is now closed but, if you're doing research on the early years of Linkedin, you may wish to reference some of the 49,000+ messages in the archives of My Linkedin Power Forum at:

+Thanks, and Keep STRONG!!

ABSOLUTELY, John! (Lnkedin's not "magic" but, I see a lot of small business owners *still* missing out on getting maximum value out of what Linkedin provides them. )

Definitely not! Worse yet are profiles that read like resumes. Your profile can tell a story that attracts your ideal clients and customers, or it can make them simply click the next profile.

A well-written profile sparks the conversation.. and maybe the start of a great business relationship!

Have you maxed out the benefits you can get from Linkedin? (Putting up a profile, a group, &/or a company page is not maxing out Linkedin.)

Linkedin Lesson #1 = RELAX ... Linkedin is not hard and is not intended to be hard ...  (If you're new to Linkedin, write a brief list of what you want your profile to help you do.  Then relax before you do anything with your profile...)

Do you know how to share your Linkedin updates with the Public, with just your Linkedin connections, and/or with the Public AND Twitter?

Comment by Vincent Wright on February 4, 2017 at 4:11pm

I wonder if Linkedin engineers know what a mess of a thing they've stuck us with with their inescapable inbox group messaging feature?

Dear Linkedin:

Can you PLEASE set up virtual Linkedin employment offices for America's 100 hardest hit communities? @LinkedIn4Good @jeffweiner @reidhoffman

You don't have to be a Linkedin addict to update your Linkedin profile. By NOT updating your profile, who may have to choose to bypass you?
