A lot of professionals have been asking the same question. What exactly is LinkedIn used for? MFS attended a seminar at LinkedIn and found out the answer to this question and more. Read on to find out our key takeaways and tips!
Using the Platform to its Full Potential
There are several main purposes of the LinkedIn platform, dependent on what your personal goals are. Finding a job is one clear objective for LinkedIn users, as is staying well-informed via your LinkedIn news feed. But what we found most interesting was LinkedIn’s potential to help us build meaningful relationships. How to do that?
- Use LinkedIn to establish and manage your professional online reputation.
- Research and contact people within your network in meaningful ways.
- Keep tabs on your posting, liking and sharing activity through LinkedIn “my activity” feed found on your profile (Hint: Anything you see here is also being shared with your network via their feed).
