If you want to connect with people from your profession & if your profession demands so then you must join LinkedIn. Otherwise its really boring.

Forum rules are not clear on this Undecided

This thread is not related to blogging, so it can be deemed against forum rules. But, then there are many threads which are not relevant.

Its a query about a social networking site which in some way related to blogging, so it can also be deemed not against forum rules.

We can always take advantage of something called "benefit of doubt". Wink

You can only post this query only after joining IB right..  So that question should not arise...

T&T was saying that it is not possible to start a thread  "Should I join Indiblogger?" on IB because you can start a thread only if you have already joined IB. I think that T&T overlooked the phrase '.... in some other forum'.

You should learn to use LinkedIn. And by the way, now a days employers look at your LinkedIn profile also.

Linked is a really good place to have "professional" social media interaction with people. There's no harm in joining. I use it rarely but I think having a profile esp if you are working or looking for a job. I've heard that a lot of employers look at Linkedin profiles of prospective employees
