Absolutely! Every executive from all Fortune 500 companies are on LinkedIn as well as 350+ million registered users. That makes LinkedIn a powerful social media platform to make connections and find a multitude of opportunities. LinkedIn allows you to leverage the power of your network—the people you already know, and the people those people know— to help you connect to the person (or persons) who are in a position to offer you a job.
LinkedIn has more benefits. You have the ability to identify, research, contact, follow up, engage, and maintain your contacts in one place. In a world where information overload is a constant threat, that’s a powerful organizational tool. No other platform has LinkedIn’s ability to facilitate business networking. Facebook is for fun. LinkedIn is for business.
