Is LinkedIn a Better Utility than Facebook? For Professionals “Advantage LinkedIn” March 3, 2008

I wrote a post over the weekend about how Facebook is becoming cluttered while the new LinkedIn is clean.  Today WebWorkerDaily has a post on the new LinkedIn.  Love the last line in the post “As long as LinkedIn never offers anything with the word “poke” or “wall,” maybe they’re on to something after all.”

I have been doing a lot of research on social networks and will be posting results soon.  One thing that I noticed in social networks, media, and groups is that that the most successful social media advertising or information connects virtual activities to the real world.  Recently my LinkedIn experience has been blowing away the utility value of Facebook.  It feels like a chore for me to work Facebook in order to connect to my real world relationships and activities.  At first Facebook worked great then it became littered with notice – very dirty communications.  Bottom line: it effected my productivity both on a personal and business level.

I have neighbors who work for Facebook and know a bunch of people over there so I hope this post can be taken as being constructive.  If Facebook founders want to be the best social utility on the planet then it has to be 1) simple, 2) elegant, and 3) easy to use.

For professionals I have to say ‘Advantage LinkedIn”

I find Facebook about as near to useless as any info product I have ever owned or used. I find LinkedIn far more utilitarian, however, after paying them some kind of fee, like 20 a month, I stopped, and used the free version – guess what? I can’t tell the difference.

There is something very polite about LinkedIn. It’s pleasant to use. Facebook is much less personal, which is strange, because it is supposed to be about friendships, and LinkedIn about money. But Facebook feels more robotic.

Your blog is really cool to me and your subject matter is very relevant. I was browsing around and came across something you might find interesting. I was guilty of 3 of them with my sites. “99% of blog managers are doing these 5 BIG mistakes”. http://is.gd/HWKqeJ You will be suprised how easy they are to fix.

Hello there folks, I am a bit of a home decorator lover.
I like never write a comment but I personally was looking over this page and I truly loved it.

It offers a handful of really great ideas for me to digest.
I have got to state, I’ve become lonely recently given that my best friend isn’t around.

Researching the online world gives me a tiny piece of mind though.
I’d love to thank you due to this marvelous web site blog which inturn can help pass on the word relevant to home decorators even more! I really was wondering if you provide rss list in order to remember to keep up-dated at this site.
