Veggie Chic on LinkedIn

veggiechic.pngI was introducing myself on the b5media internal forums the other day, telling a little about Linked Intelligence, and getting welcome messages from some of b5’s other 100+ bloggers. The response from Jul (Veggie Chic, This non-American Life) was hilarious, and I think typical of how many bloggers are feeling about LinkedIn these days:

I was forced to stop making fun of LinkedIn when it got my husband his current job. I’m still a little bitter about that.

Funny epilogue from her, later that day:

This thread has caused me to go back and visit my long-neglected LinkedIn account. Result? 450 of my business school classmates have joined since my last log on. I didn’t think my business school had that many students.

Re-connecting with classmates and former co-workers is one of the most popular (and beneficial) uses of LinkedIn.

  1. I honestly thought it was the reverse whereby many bloggers didn’t care for LinkedIN since they can get in touch with more people directly rather than go through so many gatekeepers.

    There is roughly 10,017 alumni from my school, Maryland University, on LinkedIN. It would be one of my favorite features if I actually had their emails so that we could connect ๐Ÿ™

    But that’s ok. On Myspace, there are over 11900 alumni from my school. Either way, there’s more than enough to go around ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. You’re right, Dean — what I was thinking when I wrote that was that many bloggers have been making fun of it, but right now are perhaps having second thoughts as they friends and colleagues telling stories of achieving real benefit from it.

    Regarding “It would be one of my favorite features if I actually had their emails so that we could connect” — well, it would certainly be more convenient to be able to immediately reconnect because you have their e-mail, but what you can do is request an introduction (or send an InMail if you have a paid account) telling them you want to reconnect. They can either invite you or provide their email address if they want to.

    I get a forwarding request like that once every couple of weeks or so.

  3. I find that you don’t need the e-mails for your school.

    All I did was put in my University and the dates of my attendence. LinkedIn identifies who was at the school with me.

    Then, all I do is send invitations through the connect with classmates button.

    It works great.
