  1. you are SOOOO right about that! If I could only pick one social network, it would be linked in for sure! Glad to see it getting love, the android version was updated today as well.

      • JamesSchneider RamonTrotman lol I enjoy the tom foolry on facebook, and the targeting of twitter…and even the geekfest on g+, but I’ve invested a great deal in “Ramon Trotman” as a brand, and linkedin is where that all ties together. I’ve scored multiple interviews from contacts on linkedin alone. It really is the social network of choice for professionals.
