I've been a big fan of LinkedIn for quite a while. Sometimes I refer to LinkedIn as “Facebook for grown-ups.” But I’ve dabbled in quite a few: Facebook, MySpace, Quechup, Zubka, Twitter, ZoomInfo, LinkedIn, Spock, Plaxo, etc.
After serving on a technology panel at the recent "Women Returning to Work" seminar offered by the University of Oklahoma’s Gaylord College of Journalism and Mass Communication, I became even more aware that there are many web-based tools for connecting people to people, and there is often confusion as to which is best to use. Specifically, people want to know which ones are best to use for business purposes. So, with this post I hope to create a bit of dialog.
Please comment back and let me know of any professional or career networking solutions you have enjoyed using. Please tell us why or why not. You might also let the rest of us know if there are any from which you would advise a young and upcoming professional to steer clear.
