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!!

@LinkedInHelp WE NEED for @Linkedin to HELP us END bulk spam messages in our #Linkedin inboxes. By FAR, it's THE WORSE THING ABOUT LINKEDIN.

Thanks, Joseph ... I missed the intro of Linkedin Pro Finder in this area.

Thanks Joseph,

I was wondering how this was going to work.  Sounds similar to Zintro.  But I've received a number of Zintro requests that are irrelevant.  A short response time for the type of consulting I do is not always practical.  It does take some time and thought to craft a decent proposal.

To clarify, only five people can respond to a proposal and then you can't do so.

Henry and Vincent. Pro Finder debuted in January in the NY-NJ area, too. Have seen a bunch of prospect requests. You have to act fast as after five people submit a proposal (or one day) you can no longer submit one through the system. I have been successful in obtaining some business through it.

Linkedin ProFinder looks pretty doggone GOOD, Henry Schneider!  @LinkedinByHand @Brandergy

I am participating in a new LinkedIn feature, LinkedIn Pro Finder.  I think they are only piloting it here in Austin and in California at the moment.  Here is a link

Check it out and ask me to submit a proposal for your needs.

There was a question at the beginning of March about finding the Contact Information on a connection's profile page.  I just encountered that again when searching for a name and then clicking his link.  The Contact Information tab was not there.  But when I clicked on the short profile URL, lo and behold the Contact Information tab appeared!  Very odd behavior.
