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!!
