interview_chatter Darlene McDaniel over at Interview Chatter has created a great 10-part series on LinkedIn, as seen through the eyes of a new user:

  1. What is LinkedIn? – Darlene starts with a brand new LinkedIn account, sets up a profile and connects to some people that are already on the system, all in about 90 minutes.
  2. One Value of Your LinkedIn Profile – Within 24 hours, Darlene has access to nearly a million people on LinkedIn.
  3. Book Review: I’m on LinkedIn — Now What?? – I was Executive Editor on this book, so I admit I’m biased, but Darlene really enjoyed it. Key message at this point – complete your profile thoroughly.
  4. LinkedIn Connections – "Now What?" – Darlene has the "ah-hah" moment that it’s really the number of people in your second degree that matters more than the number of people in your first degree. The power is in the links.
  5. LinkedIn Connections – "Now What?", Pt. 2 – Do you have a LinkedIn success story of your own to share? Darlene wants to hear it.
  6. LinkedIn Connections – Degrees – Darlene explains degrees of separation and starts exploring reaching out beyond her immediate connections.
  7. LinkedIn – Blast from My Past – Darlene reconnects with her previous manager through a mutual contact.
  8. LinkedIn Answers – A brief tour of one of LinkedIn’s most powerful features.
  9. Create More Value with LinkedIn – Inspired by a Guy Kawasaki post, Darlene shares some tips specifically for job-seekers on how to use LinkedIn to prepare for your interview.
  10. LinkedIn – Jobs & Hiring – An overview of the tools available for job seekers on LinkedIn.

      • If you want privacy, don’t engage in social media for business purposes. The whole point of social media for business is to make your activities more public. Don’t give out your social security number or your driver’s license, but other than that, what are you putting on LinkedIn that you don’t want other people to see?

        I trust the privacy/security of my private messages to others through the system, as much as I trust email. Other than that, there’s nothing I’m putting on there that’s “private”.
