Pano Dimopoulos – the Slideshare Example

Monday, November 26th, 2012

I am always on the lookout to share slideshare presentations with you. Recently I found one from Pano Dimopoulos' LinkedIn Profile.  Pano is a Human Resource and Administration professional, driven to help you achieve your business goals, in the Brisbane Area, in Australia. I'm not sure if you can see his slideshare ...

LinkedIn Events: Bye-bye, retired!

Tuesday, November 6th, 2012

LinkedIn is apparently going to retire LinkedIn Events. I say GOOD RIDDANCE. Often people would say "in the webinar you are doing, please talk about Events."  My thought was always "why?  No one is using Events." Jorgen Sundberg wrote: All of the comments on this was about how LinkedIn is out of touch, and this ...

HireSignals: COOL STUFF!

Wednesday, June 27th, 2012

HireSignals is a third party tool that I can't imagine LinkedIn allowing to continue... even though they should.  Check out this video on how it works. More here. In short, this tool allows YOU (the job seeker) to say whether you are actively pursuing a new job, or if you don't ...

LinkedIn Acquisition: Slideshare (!!!)

Saturday, May 5th, 2012

I have stayed away from writing about acquisitions that LinkedIn does because of a few reasons. Either they didn't make too much sense, or because the acquisition didn't seem to add much/any value to the average user, or because I wanted to focus mostly on using LinkedIn, not so much ...

My Video on LinkedIn: LinkedIn Google Presentation Fail?

Tuesday, March 6th, 2012

Check out what I see now where I once saw my video: It's not a surprise, really.

Optimizing Slideshare On Your LinkedIn Profile

Friday, February 18th, 2011

Up until this week I've had four Powerpoint presenations on my LinkedIn Profile, via the Slideshare Application. NOTE: all of the links below take you to a LinkedIn Profile. To see what I'm talking about you have to click the button that says "View Full Profile." I've always felt four was too ...

LinkedIn Applications – Amazon Reading List

Wednesday, June 9th, 2010

LinkedIn Applications - which ones do you load, which ones do you ignore? I've not been a big fan of the Amazon Reading List application, in general. I think people generally put... well, what they are reading.  This may not be on-brand, and essentially becomes NOISE on an already-too-busy LinkedIn Profile. I ...

LinkedIn

Thursday, November 12th, 2009

It's about time. A couple of days ago I saw an article on CNN titled Twitter and LinkedIn hook up.  Not much meat there, but some really funny stuff (like the title of the video: "Twitter CEO: We are not a fad" - seriously, that had to be quoted?  No, Twitter ...
