I'm big on Linkedin. Indeed, they've told me so just this past week.
Seems I have one of the top 5% most viewed profiles for 2012. That's a wider cohort than the 1% of Occupy fame and the 3% of Mitt Romney's productive few. But I'm one in a million, eh?
I am big on Linkedin for helping me to stay in touch with many colleagues across the world: what they're doing, what they're thinking and for the opportunities that are presented in career development. As a job seeker, ready to transition from consultant to full-time, I can only hope this fine honor will elevate my prospects, right!?!
Best wishes Linkedin on the first 200 million. Keep the relevance strong — and keep it focused. Take care not to fall into the Facebook muddle, and risk the dismissive "un-cool" opprobrium of my young nephew and his peers: Facebook sucks. It doesn't suck, but it not so great either with disregard for users on the rise. Monetization is OK; abuse of data and privacy is not so clever. Linkedin seems to have found a virile path to quality revenue and subscriber loyalty.
