LinkedIn, a popular social proffesional networking site is one of the fastest growing forms of social media in existence. As of March, it reached the 100 million user milestone, and introduces 1 million new professional users to their site each week.
In addition, 499 out of the 500 Fortune 500 companies have director level or above employees with Linkedin profiles. Linkedin is a tool that people can use to network with other professionals in their field, look at potential candidates for a job, and 'link' with other businesses to take on a project.
However, that is not all that this networking site can do, as the following article demonstrates. Consider creating a Linkedin profile for yourself within your business as a potential way to network other professionals.
