LinkedIn (www.linkedin.com) - Another good website to use in conjunction with ActiveRain

If you don't already know about it, LinkedIn.com is a great professional networking site for various business professionals.

It doesn't have quite the blogging capability, a personal feel or resulting Google Juice that ActiveRain has, but it's a great way to connect with other professionals.

I remember earlier this year I had an issue with a short sale, and I was able to find some Executive VP's at the bank where my shortsale was held.

It was because of that connection that I was able to get the short sale expedited.

If any of  you have some history with LinkedIn, let me know what you think of it.

Ralph, I value my associations on Linkedin very much and have used it as a professional referral.  The recommendations I have received from former colleagues are valuable for building connections with new relationships.

Ralph - LinkedIn is a great website to reconnect with your old colleagues.  After I lost contact with my fellow accountants, I found most of them at LinkedIn.  It is a great website for business people and professionals.

Our team does this as well.  The social media bug has hit but finding a handful of successful ones is the key

Hi Ralph, I have a linked-in account, and joining some of the Linked in Groups are good for making connections.

Ralph, network is the key, we never know that someone we met can lead us to.

It is always good to be connected, and this is definitely a business that requires it.

Hi Ralph... I have had a linked in account for several years and I have never quite figured out how to harness it to drive results.  It doesn't do for me what Facebook or Active Rain does by a wide margin.

Seems like LinkedIn is getting a little more popular these days, but it's still mainly for networking.

I have had LinkedIn account for years, but it never materialized that much for me. I guess it is time to revisit the site...
