I started out in LinkedIn in 2004, I was just curious then.
Didn’t have much expectations and it took me a couple of weeks in fact to complete my profile.
After I completed my profile, friends and colleagues started seeing me online. Even colleagues so far away from home now living in places like New Zealand, Australia, Canada, United Kingdom, Middle East and even some parts of Africa I’m not so familiar with started getting in touch.
At that time the opportunity to write and to publish was through invitation. I suspected that anyone with an “All Star” status were invited.
Quite exciting then.
From a network of less than 30 members limited only to people I personally know, my network grew.
Even then I was still selective in terms of accepting who should be in my network. Even though I did get a few consulting engagements through LinkedIn I still did not use it the way most do.
I largely tap LinkedIn as a source of learning and personal development. I specially choose people who can make me a better person, a better consultant, and a better advocate of development.
You will have your own reasons for being in LinkedIn.
You have to grow it before it can make sense to you or be useful to you.
I’m not going to speculate how useful it will be. My job in writing this e-book is to help you access your connection data and hopefully make you productive.
I hope it serves your purpose well.
