Are you part of any professional networking sites? Has it served its purpose for you?
Yes and Yes
Yeah. LinkedIn has been useful for getting references. And there are some quite good discussion groups. But it's so square.
I love Twitter, although I read more than I tweet.
I'm on FB but it's rubbish. It makes no sense to me. Every time I look at it I get jedi mind warp and fall asleep.
I've experimented with a few sites here and there, from LuxurySociety to tech groups and so forth. All of these sites / communities have their strengths, but in my experience so far nothing beats the lead generation power and networking opportunities that arise out of the mainstream social media sites.
I really like LinkedIn. There are networking communities for every professional interest on that site. And yes, it does work.
Linkedin and Linked In groups also branch out
You can find me on Linkedin http://gr.linkedin.com/in/projectweb
visit my Facebook Page http://on.fb.me/JVvnDt
or add me on Twitter http://twitter.com/politidis
and Xing: http://bit.ly/IpFBu6
These websites have over-delivered.
I use LinkedIn.com (linkedin.com/in/amandamacarthur) and I love the content on TheLadders.com. LinkedIn is a nice way to keep in touch with people you meet in business and at conferences. I've found the Q&A forums to be a good place for discussions, but I wouldn't say I use it for any type of lead generation.
I am on LinkedIn and use it mainly as a tool to engage with people I have already met and to that end it serves its purpose. I am however looking at exploring the potential of this site furtherr.
Yes and yes. I was headhunted for my current job via LinkedIn.
I joined a few just before Google burned them. Thankfuly I never fully committed to the cause but they were effective pre penguin update.
Yes I'm on Ecademy, Facebook and Linked-in and Twitter. Ecademy has delivered a good ROI already
Yes. Not really.
Several. Just need more hours in the day.
