LinkedIn is a social network for people in professional occupations. It is one of the modern ways of connecting with individuals who are not near you. Apart from it being a networking site it can also be used for advertising. This social site has developed and it is competing with other social sites like twitter. It has a lot of features which help people to maintain a list of contact and details of people whom they have the same level of relationship.
LinkedIn users can invite anyone whether he or she is a site user. Once you are invited you become a connection. It is always good to invite people that you know rather than inviting people that you don’t know. The invitee can decide to click on ‘spam’ or ‘I don’t know’ and if the inviter gets a lot of such responses it may lead to closure of his or her account. Thus it is important that you showcase your profile well. It is necessary that you upload your photo so that your invited friends can look at you and accept your request.
LinkedIn can also be used in finding jobs. Many people have been able to find jobs and business opportunities using this site. Also employers can list jobs and be able to get potential candidates for the listed jobs. Jobseekers are able to review the profile of the hiring managers and they can contact them regarding the vacancies available. Linkedin is for sure a social network used for connecting people all over the globe.
