Today after seeing Loic Le Meur former CEO of Seesmic post that he’s just adding everyone that adds him on Linkedin made me question the quality of his network. Which was a good reminder that it’s probably a good time to clean up some contacts on there. Especially since I switch industries from Tech to Games.
For me Linkedin is two things:
- A resume builder
- A tool to connect to people in my industry
I actually really like Linkedin after I cleaned up my pulse feed. After reviewing around 9k contacts. I discovered that 35% of people were relevant to my current industry which is gaming, 3d, and virtual reality. It also sparked me to start following up with folks I haven’t been in touch with for awhile.
