What is LinkedIn?
LinkedIn is the world’s largest professional network with over 220 million members and growing rapidly. LinkedIn connects you to your trusted contacts and helps you exchange knowledge, ideas, and opportunities with a broader network of professionals.
Unlike other social media channels where people share what their pets and kids are doing, funny photos, celebrity gossip or what restaurant they are at – LinkedIn is all about business and careers.
