Professional social software
31st December 2003
Via D. Keith Robinson, LinkedIn is a social software system that works kind of like Friendster but is targetted at professionals. You sign up, create a profile that includes your industry and geographical area and it provides you with a number of tools to find other people with similar interests. More importantly, it lets you build up a network of contacts through which you can access other people. If nothing else, it’s a great way of maintaining your CV.
Keith says he’s had a few leads for freelance work from it so it appears to work. I’ve created an account; if you sign up, drop me an invite (my email address can be found via my contact page) and provided I have at least a vague inkling of who you are I’ll add you to my immediate network.
