How Are People Really Using LinkedIn?

How Are People Really Using LinkedIn? | psychology | Scoop.it

Professional networking service LinkedIn blasted through the 100-million-user mark in March, making it even more powerful for finding a job, keeping up with colleagues and promoting your resume.

 

LinkedIn is growing so quickly, it's adding a new member each second. As the size of its network grows, LinkedIn is steadily getting more useful. But how are people really using the fast-growing service? Researchers at Lab 42 asked 500 LinkedIn users that question and many more, and came up with a variety of answers in this infographic.

 

Among the fun facts they uncovered: We found it interesting the way top level executives use the service in vastly different ways from entry-level workers. Let us know in the comments how you like to use LinkedIn, or if you don't use the service, why not?...

Results: The Effect of Performance Enhancing Drug Use in Sports on American Society

Results: The Effect of Performance Enhancing Drug Use in Sports on American Society | psychology | Scoop.it

"Performance enhancing drugs (PEDs) have been used by athletes for decades. The first appearance of anabolic steroids was in the 1954 Olympics by the Russian weightlifting team. Once the Americans found out about this, they started putting their athletes on steroids and the rivalry was born. The east Germans were famous, or infamous, for their rigorous doping program lasting from 1968 to 1976. In that eight-year span, they dominated in the women’s sports and demonstrated the significant effectiveness of doping. This is thought to be what started the widespread use of doping in sports." http://bit.ly/1doazRa

Performance enhancing drugs has crippled the sports society in the past few years. Usually when a record is broken, many spectators question if that athlete took PEDs. It is sad to see that every record broken has to be a questionable debate.

PEDs have become almost the norm in the sports arena.  The allure of being the best is something quite of few have accepted the risk of being caught and losing it all to reach that stature.
