Social Media Monday – LinkedIn Endorsement | LINKEDIN TIPS & TRICKS | Scoop.it
The popularity of LinkedIn has continued to grow and if you are reading this article and haven't signed up for LinkedIn, you better when you are finished reading.  LinkedIn has become the white elephant.
Amanda Hoffmann's insight:

LINKEDIN Endorsements were created to be an easy way to recommend a friend without having to write anything. In an article from Mashable, a linkedin infograph shows that useres are 4x's more likely to be seen by professionals when endorsed. 

 

With how easy it is to "click" a button now....I wonder how much value they now really have?

How To Create The Perfect SlideShare Profile - Business 2 Community

How To Create The Perfect SlideShare Profile - Business 2 Community | LINKEDIN TIPS & TRICKS | Scoop.it

Why do you need a blueprint to create your personal or company SlideShare profile? It’s like anything else that you build, whether it’s a house or an inbound marketing strategy. You need to build the foundation correctly, so all other activity is smooth, working and excels.

 

With nearly 60% of businesses practicing inbound marketing and inbound marketing growing by 50% for the third year in a row (Source: HubSpot), you might be able to infer that inbound marketing ‘thing’ is not going away!

 

There are many ways to activate an inbound marketing strategy. In my opinion, SlideShare is the next ‘big platform’ that will drive inbound marketing success for B2B and B2C. My opinion is based on the research and statements from ComScore (May, 2013), where they report that over 50 million unique people visit SlideShare monthly. These visitors include more small business owners and C-level executives on average than any other social network!

Amanda Hoffmann's insight:

LINKEDIN ARTICLE - ARE OUR KIDS LOSING THEIR CHILDHOOD?

This article is very interesting and in some areas I agree with the writer's sentiment. 

I feel that there is too much pressure on our youth to make a career choice, instead of being kids.

Sadly, in this very competitive environment, it will be the innovative and motivated youth that clicks onto LinkedIn and learns valuable skills "now" that will catch the worm! 

I don't agree, but then I'm a idealist after all.

LinkedIn recently announced LinkedIn University Pages giving schools a unique presence and prospective students (those new teen LinkedIn users) a new resource for their research.

It starts with about 200 schools. The school already has over 180,000 “followers” on the company page.

The opportunity for Universities, who already have company pages, to have an academic presence on LinkedIn is a huge benefit, not only for the university, but for LinkedIn to continue the uptick in attraction to faculty and students…
