I sometimes consider paying LinkedIn to stop emailing me. Social networks can be really annoying.

I do like those big pictures, Joe -- though I gotta say, I don't see myself paying LinkedIn in order to have these stock photo options.

Maybe it's just me, but...
...Am I the only one who finds these new "enhanced" profiles with the huge background picture annoying?  What happened to having streamlined interfaces?

Instead, it's all personalization upon personalization and customization upon customization of personal profiles.

Re: 5 new ways to find new job
Even though LinkedIn has consistently -- and, in many ways, successfully -- marketed itself as the social network for professionals and for professional networking/job hunting/recruiting/etc., it does not have a monopoly on this -- even among the major social networks.  With Facebook's new find features, it's easy to run similar searches on friends, "2nd-degree connections," and others who have various work or educational backgrounds.

And even before these new features were released, I got work/clients through Facebook.

LinkedIn's nice, and I'm not knocking it here, but leverage all of your platforms.  :)

I believe that the original positioning of LinkedIn is for professionals to establish and develop personal network. But nowadays LinkedIn is becoming more and more like a human resource market - many people find the new opportunity via LinkedIn. This is nice - with the 5 new ways to stand out, we have 5 new ways to find new job. By the way, I just got a good offer via the job posting on LinkedIn.:-)

Social is a Business Imperative
Social is a Business Imperative
The use of social media for a host of business purposes is rising. Indeed, social is quickly moving from cutting edge to business basic. Organizations that have so far ignored social - either because they thought it was a passing fad or just didnít have the resources to properly evaluate potential use cases and products - must start giving it serious consideration.
