LinkedIn – it’s something I recommend if you’re in a professional field, which tends to be most working adults (teachers, business owners, authors, writers, artists, etc.).
In a perfect world, everyone would know the best things about each other at a moment’s notice, but we need resumés and recommendations to “verify” a history of honesty, excellence, and/or performance.
LinkedIn operates the world’s largest professional network on the Internet in over 200 countries and territories.
Sometimes it’s a first step in the right direction. Sometimes, it’s a platform on which to influence.
Either way, if you’re going to be online and like the idea of “professional”, it’s a good place to start.
