Linkedin: The Early Years
Brandergist | Brandergy.com
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.
Between February 2005 and September 2007, we were blessed to have Linkedin's founders as our members (Reid Hoffman
, Konstantin 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!!
