How to use Linkedin?
I am new to Hubpages & have just started using Linkedin to promote my hubs. But, I can't understand it's working. To me, it looks like a Job site, as it always asks about my qualifications. Also, I can't connect with strangers. Is there any other way to promote my articles on LinkedIn?
I didn't know we could really use linked in to promote our hubs. I've always thought of it as a career networking site and not a social forum like reddit, facebook, twitter, or pinterest.
LinkedIn won't let you connect with strangers. It only allows connections with people who accept the link. It's to maintain privacy for its users and to prevent spamming.
That is so NOT true. LinkedIn will use your email address to send out invites to everyone in your online address book. People you sent one email, one time, years ago will get invites to join LinkedIn (sent as if you sent them yourself).
That grrl I've been using that site for many years and I have not had any of the problems your talking about but I will say this all of these site use our information some type of way we should just watch ho much you offer to them.
LinkedIn is nothing but a phishing site.Once they have your email address they use it to send invitations to join the site to anyone you have ever sent an email to. Do not give them access to your email account - do not let them go through your online address book to find connections/ friends for you.
Once you join LinkedIn just try deleting your account. They are like Facebook. They only pretend to delete the account. It's all still there, stored and your email address is STILL being used to spam/ phish people to join LinkedIn.
In order to get LinkedIn to cease and desist you have to demand (in a pretty obnoxious way) they completely and fully and finally delete your account and all your information. I had to do it three times before they actually did delete my account. Each time they said my account was deleted but people were still getting email "from me" inviting them to join me on LinkedIn.
Meanwhile, I found the site itself to be useless. I never made any useful connections there but I had loads of friend requests from people I had nothing in common with and no interest in connecting with.
gaganbhatia, I have been using LinkedIn for some time now and find it very helpful, therefore, I must disagree with That Grrl. Unlike Facebook, it is more of a professional site and as such, the more professional you use it, the more professional you relationships will be. If you are as unfamiliar with LinkedIn as you say, I would recommend that you ask more people about that LinkedIn experiences before canceling your account. Again, unlike That Grrl, LinkedIn has never emailed on my behalf. I have connected with many people and built a large network of individuals who have either helped me or I them.
Regarding the promotion of your hubs.....When you create your LinkedIn profile, (I'll assume that you have done that) you can showcase your hub through your Activity feed. I recommend that you make it relevant to your LinkedIn profile, in other words, if you are using LinkedIn to find employment, I would be certain that your hubs represent you well, are well written, are grammatically correct and are relevant to your job search.
Your hub will then be highlighted in the LinkedIn feed. If it captures the attention of other members, they may send you an invitation to join their network, otherwise, you would need to connect with them and in many cases you need to have information about them to connect. Like any social network, there are people who have positive experiences and others who do not. I suggest a bit more research before making your decision. Good Luck.
I'm a chef and I use both linkedin and hubpages and I do promote my blogs there on that site but LinkedIn is one of the most popular business networks and works by connecting users with one another. Professionals use LinkedIn to exchange information, ideas and opportunites. You can find more information at http://www.webpronews.com/topnews/2008/1...
Linkedin does email others, because it happened to me - phishing. That is all I know about it. I might look into it, based on some replies here, to see about promoting hubs.
