Are you LinkedIn?

Unlike Facebook where, family, friends and colleges are all mixed up, LinkedIn is a professional networking social media website. This is the place to connect, re-connect or get introduced to people in a professional setting.

  1. A contact network is built up consisting of their direct connections, the connections of each of their connections (termed second-degree connections) and also the connections of second-degree connections (termed third-degree connections). This can be used to gain an introduction to someone a person wishes to know through a mutual, trusted contact.

  2. It can then be used to find jobs, people and business opportunities recommended by someone in one’s contact network.

  3. Employers can list jobs and search for potential candidates.

  4. Job seekers can review the profile of hiring managers and discover which of their existing contacts can introduce them.

  5. Users can post their own photos and view photos of others to aid in identification.

  6. Users can now follow different companies and can get notification about the new joining and offers available.

  7. Users can save (i.e. bookmark) jobs which they would like to apply for

Think of it as a combination or tradeshow/job fair on the internet.  It is a great place to tell people about your company, products and services.
