LinkedIn is a network of 135 million users; it’s the backbone of the professional social graph. But while the service has endless access to talent, it didn’t yet offer the right tools to harness that talent in the event of a tragedy, such as the earthquake in Haiti. LinkedIn's Deep Nishar and others set out to change that. "Let’s have a skill setting for people to say they love helping out when there are natural disasters--if you happen to be a contractor or a home builder, you now have a ready audience," Nishar says. "We can target you, and say, Here’s an organization that needs your help."
You wouldn't wear a wrinkled suit or a stained tie to a network meeting, or get overly drunk and have inappropriate conversations. So don't do the equivalent of those online!
LinkedIn is growing, but has its stock price outrun its real value? If so, the bubble may pop soon.

Social Media Social Influence Social media takes on many different forms including magazines, Internet forums, weblogs, social blogs, microblogging, wikis, podcasts, photographs or pictures, video, rating and social bookmarking.
Social media — contrary to common belief — allows you to better manage also your strong links. Picking up a phone or visiting someone in person puts you and them on the spot and consumes a lot of Social Capital. If you're asking a friend for a favor personally it is very hard for that person to feel that they can say no. They may resent you for asking. It can be hard to ask as well; many people don't ask friends to help because they are too proud. But if you ask your close friend a favor through Facebook or LinkedIn it signals to the person you're approaching that you do not regard help in this case as a test of the relationship, which instantly reduces the tension for both sides.
Thinking of social media as a separate effort will lead to failure and you’ll lose a year. Social media is simply an overlay that must be applied to existing business functions including marketing, customer care, e-commerce, search, HR, internal systems, legal, etc. CEOs should understand this and ask to see specific plans to achieve business results through collaboration and smart planning. Being “good at social media” shouldn’t be your goal. Weaving social media into the fabric of your company and making your business truly social in nature will be much more valuable.
