2.9d FAO and LinkedIn
LinkedIn is a business-related social networking site, found at www.linkedin.com, used for professional interaction. Users create professional profiles, connect with other people in their fields, exchange experiences and information, and network for professional purposes.
The main feature of the site is to allow users to maintain a contact list of people with whom they have some level of relationship, called Connections. This list of connections can then be used in a number of ways, e.g. to find jobs, search for potential candidates. LinkedIn also allows users to research companies with which they may be interested in working, get statistics about the company and learn about available job offers.
