linkedin

With all this advice and "connections" we build here @PPOT
how about making a group on LinkedIn, and really organize these connections?

or would that be a stupid idea?

I use LinkedIn a lot, a PPOT group seems like a cool idea.

Thing is , it's one thing to fire up a group
but Linkedin has to approve it , they don't let any bunch of hippies form a potsmoking group


then there's also the Pelican name, i don't want to start something up, that spins off Pelicanparts, without prior approval of Wayne

even if it's PPOT, it's still "Pelicanparts" and that's still Wayne's

so Wayne, what you think about all this?

I use linkedin and agree its a nice tool. The key though is to keep it professional otherwise if you just keep adding people for the sake of adding people it becomes no different than a grown up version of myspace.

Interesting ...
Definitely would like Wayne's approval ... but would wonder if he has the time to also monitor something else ...

I'm interested!

Do you have to get an invite?

yeah, that's what i figured so far

but the group thing would kinda of make it possible, to add a big pool of everything, without having to add up everybody from PPOT

you know, it would lower the threshold if you know the other guy is PPOT too

i supposed no different from what freemason's or all the other service clubs do , albeit less formal

I guess I would be open to joining such a group as long as when other contacts view my profile they don't see 100 PPOT names listed. No offences guys... just trying to keep my contact / connection list fairly tight.

nah, that's not how it works

you join a group, then some group functionality opens
you don't automatically get any new contacts with the group membership

LinkedIn got me several interviews and lets me keep track of the ex-Ford IT people I used to work with. I have found the service to be valuable and useful!
