LinkedIn, do you have it and do you even use it?
April 26, 2016 1:43pm CST
I have a LinkedIn account and I signed up for it a couple of years back but I haven't really used it. I'm thinking of deleting it but my friends keep saying not to because it's important. Is it really important to have a LinkedIn account? I don't see a lot of people excited about having an account in LinkedIn. People just say let's connect on FaceBook instead of LinkedIn. Do you have one and do you even use it?

@enlightenedpsych2 I´m sure it can be helpful for some. But I have a full agenda with just the people I know. And I´m invited to all the writing activity in the city , book readings and the like. I don´t have time for most of them though.

I have a LinkedIn account and everybody in our office has a LinkedIn account as well. Some of my colleagues even got job offers from other LinkedIn members. I think Facebook is very different with LinkedIn. I use mine as a professional's profile because it might come in handy someday.

LinkedIn is mostly for jobs and being professional. People put their resumes up there and experiences and network with others. It is not really social networking just business networking. I was able to contact my 8th grade teacher using it because I thought it would have been weird to just add him on facebook haha.

I never have made one of these, although I know a lot of friends and coworkers who have. I think it's good for people in the business world who want to "network". To me, "networking" is not a thing. I work an entry-level job, not a businessperson, and I don't really see any use for it that this time. I think it's more of a professional networking thing, but definitely different than Facebook or other social media accounts.
