so here’s the thing, facebook was for fun and linkedin was supposed to be all professional, so I’m registered http://uk.linkedin.com/pub/isla-kuhn/9/52/7b2 (and it’s the third hit if you google me which is pretty good – ahem, not that I do that very often..) and I’ve even got 22 connections which is lovely.
But apart from this week, when Head Above The Parapet used it to contact me (which I’m mildly suspicious was only to tick the box for this Thing – correct me if I’m wrong, HATP!!) I’ve never really used it for anything. I like it when I get requests for connection – who wouldn’t? – but I’ve not used it for what a non-librarian friend seems to use it for, which is to include pleasing comments from business clients about him. Which is nice…
I get pleasing comments from library users, occaisionally, but I’ve yet to feel the urge to post them on linkedin.
Perhaps that day will come… but in the meantime I’d sooner have a whole different set of links to contemplate….
