It's another morning where Facebook, Groupon, and Zynga are getting slammed.


LinkedIn, alone among the social-media newcomers, is up!

But if I’m any gage, I’ve only ever gotten one job inquiry from a hiring manager who found me on LinkedIn and I’ve heard from zero recruiters. I also don’t think the best way to find jobs is through recruiters. It’s through people you know. LinkedIn can help you do that if you use it wisely.
