Is LinkedIn Better Than Facebook for Business Networking?

Is LinkedIn Better Than Facebook for Business Networking? Will LinkedIn be replaced by the 800 pound gorilla? I do not think so. LinkedIn is still very relevant to the business community. Geoffrey James agrees in his article LinkedIn Will Outlive Facebook. Here’s Why.

LinkedIn launched in 2003 and essentially has not changed much over the years. LinkedIn is not designed for multimedia with functions to store photos and videos. Basic resume information is all that is in a profile. My LinkedIn profile includes my professional credential and recommendations of my work. This is social proof and gives me credibility among peers and prospects.

LinkedIn is the networking tools for professionals. In my many years in the corporate world, I know that contacts are researched on LinkedIn and a profile was expected. LinkedIn is still relevant for business to business and large companies.
