A few years ago I was invited to join LinkedIn by my real estate agent. There were a few instances where I used the site, because I didn’t think it was very user friendly. I found it hard to follow and boring! I think LinkedIn is definitely a more professional use of connecting to social media where Facebook has created a more laid back setting. Facebook tends to focus more on pictures and status updates, where LinkedIn is more informative, and can provide updates on current news articles. LinkedIn offers job opportunities and companies to follow, where as Facebook creates fan pages. LinkedIn could be very beneficial when looking for recruiting schools, or new job opportunities. I think Facebook is more beneficial in staying updated in the social world.
