LinkedIn Founder Reid Hoffman and CEO Weiner talk value of LinkedIn with Charlie Rose

LinkedIn Founder Reid Hoffman and CEO Weiner talk value of LinkedIn with Charlie  Rose | All About LinkedIn | Scoop.it

Since becoming more of a working professional who still likes to be creative online and share silly photographs, I have often wondered where LinkedIn plays into my online world. Those older than me have found a home in LinkedIn, while I am slowly seeing its value and its place in my networked world.

 

My perceptions on LinkedIn changed, for the better, after a recent episode of "Charlie Rose" on PBS. Rose's round wooden table was flanked by executive chairman and co-founder Reid Hoffman and CEO Jeff Weiner.

 

Hoffman crystallized for me the rational of being active on LinkedIn, even while maintaining busy Facebook and Twitter accounts (2:43): "Why do you need an office when you have a house? Why do you need a suit when you have sweat clothes?"

Is LinkedIn For Old People? “Like The Kind Of People Who Will Give You A Job?”

Is LinkedIn For Old People? “Like The Kind Of People Who Will Give You A Job?” | All About LinkedIn | Scoop.it
Greylock VC and LinkedIn co-founder Reid Hoffman talked about his Web 3.0 idea (Big Data quel surprise) here at Web 2.0 about the implementation layer on top of this data.

 

Hoffman was steadfast in his idea that LinkedIn is a one of the cool kids. When Information Week’s David Carr prefaced asking Hoffman a question by, “LinkedIn is for old people,” Hoffman snapped back wittily, “Like the people that would give you a job?”

 

Carr went on to argue that young people already have established a social identity on Facebook, and have no need to join linkedIn. “We actually do reach a younger demographic,” Hoffman responded, citing statistics he couldn’t reveal. What he could reveal? That the social network is now adding “2 members per second.”
