10 Ways to Use Linkedin : Guy Kawasaki and the Linkedin Blog

Today as I was looking at the updates on my Linkedin Profile page I saw a tip : Learn more about using LinkedIn by reading Guy Kawasaki’s post, Ten Ways to Use LinkedIn. by coincidence I had just finished an article in the Economist article today that called Facebook for Suits.

-Top Business social  networks are Linkedin and Xing with 29M and 6.5M members. Both have a premium paid version and are profitable

Are you a member of both Linkedin and Xing? Do you think Facebook can be used for business starting now?
