Linkedin: The Early Years

 


Linkedin: The Early Years

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:
(FYI: www.MyLinkedinPowerForum.com now points to a subgroup on Brandergy.com)

Vincent, 

I have on various websites. I also have mentioned tense corrections.

I always try to be polite in expressing notable errors.

Must be the editor in me.

Am I my brother's (and sister's) TYPO Keeper??? Do you let friends know about typos on their professional profiles on #Linkedin?

Anyone else noticing that Linkedin "Christmas Greetings" are just now starting to arrive, circa Jan. 12, 2014? #LinkedinPostalService

Marc,

I'm already familiar with their reasoning but, that's an excellent article you shared.

For me, an even more question is this one: In Linkedin's "People You May Know", suppose Linkedin REPEATEDLY keeps recommending someone whom you DON'T WANT TO KNOW? Do you know how to remove people whom you'd NEVER work with?

For example, there are people whom I've known who've done some pretty rancid things in their work lives.  They may have been in an old address book of mine but, now, Linkedin repeatedly recommends them.  The only reason I'd ever connect with them is to see if that would stop Linkedin from recommending them. 

DEAR LINKEDIN: I don't need further recommendations for people who USED to be in my address book...

re: Just who owns your LinkedIn connections? - Irish Times

Good to see some common sense court decision in the article.  Of course the correct answer to who owns your connections is not the company ... or you.  It's LinkedIn, which can and has transferred ownership of groups and does not provide direct contact downloads or email addresses of group  members or connections (if you have several thousand).

@Marc,

As usual, "Linkedin kills more babies" is nicely written... thanks for sharing...

@Mark,

I'll try to find the precise article for you but, a quick search of My Linkedin Power Forum shows intimations of conversations about the "1,500 year old man" at this link: http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/MyLinkedinPowerForum/msearch?que...
