LinkedIn Apologies

The Communication Blog

Just want to go on record tho' I realize this is not the right place to post this: Apologies to all who I inadvertently asked to accept me on LinkedIn. Instead I was asking others (who LinkedIn said I knew but in many cases didn’t) to link to me. LinkedIn ApologiesI should have read the screen more carefully. In clicking “accept all”--or whatever it was--I thought I was simply accepting those who asked to link to me.

LinkedIn - Odd It Celebrates Birthdays

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

Since LinkedIn is  the  network for professionals, it's appropriate that it flags someone's connections of X years at ABC company. I advocate LinkedIn disable the system which lets my network know I had another birthday. Work anniversaries, sure.

LinkedIn - Investors continue mauling

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

According to those who keep track of such things, LinkedIn had its worst stock-market day ever. Soon enough we professionals who are investing so much time playing in the LinkedIn sandbox will take our toys elsewhere to network. It isn't only the Q4 loss which LinkedIn announced. When I was writing for Motley Fool, I defended LinkedIn high share price because of its ability to capture the data associated with The Professional Class.

LinkedIn Profile - Lots of Views, Then Nothing.

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

Like every other entity in this volatile era, your profile on LinkedIn should be continually reviewed. One red flag that your LinkedIn Profile is a liability, not an asset, is this: It's receiving lots of views. No surprise, LinkedIn encourages us for continually revamping profiles.

LinkedIn - It knows plenty

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

The sweet spot in LinkedIn is all the data it collects about us professionals, how it can collect that in real time, and how it can aggregate it so that even the White House is clamoring for it.  For the financial information company Motley Fool I look at this LinkedIn phenomenon. 

Like Facebook, LinkedIn Doesn't Want You to Leave Site

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

Now, we are getting it that the same phenomenon seems to be happening with LinkedIn. The most recent development has been the pull power of LinkedIn News or Updates. Those could and do motivate high-powered leaders and managers to check  our LinkedIn profile.

LinkedIn Pulse - It's Not A Numbers Game

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

LinkedIn opened its Influencers' forum to all members. Called "Pulse" that is a free platform for any LinkedIn member. There are buttons which allow you to link the content throughout LinkedIn as well as on Facebook, Twitter and Google+.

LinkedIn News - Hot Hangout for Networking, Having Profiles Viewed

The hot hangout seems to be LinkedIn News. On LinkedIn News I can leave comments on Beth Comstock's frequent postings. On LinkedIn News, I can also deepen my professional relationships with colleagues. My immediate recommendation was: Get on LinkedIn News.

LinkedIn Pulse Or Blog? - Maybe Both

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

Publishing on LinkedIn Pulse is a powerful magnet for attention. My LinkedIn post on rebranding Ellen Pao made it Christmas in July for my professional life. If you post as often as you want on LinkedIn Pulse, for example, you might come across as "desperate."

Both the social network Facebook and the professional network LinkedIn (particularly its Updates section) flag us on the birthdays of friends and colleagues.  Yet, of course, we must be part of Facebook and LinkedIn.

LinkedIn Pulse Mutating Into Multi-Dimensional Tool

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

LinkedIn Pulse is mutating into a multi-dimensional tool. Currently, on LinkedIn Pulse is a post by writer/editor/consultant Claire Zulkey. I will be focusing on the LinkedIn Pulse posts to attempt to discern other trends in leveraging this digital platform. Remember how it started out as a platform restricted to brandname experts? When it opened the doors to Everyman and Everywoman, evolution kicked in.

Linkedin Pulse Gadflies - Less Is More

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

One of the most used is LinkedIn Pulse. Unlike Medium which is issue-oriented, LinkedIn Pulse is a platform for business. At one time LinkedIn Pulse was only open to designated influencers aka brandnames. For a while now, members of LinkedIn have been posting what should be thought pieces on the platform. The image they are creating is: Hey, LinkedIn fellow members, I am your network gadfly. Even in search engine marketing (SEM), less is usually more.

LinkedIn: Professional Profile Must

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

Those who can give us work - full-time, part-time, contract - check LinkedIn.    I did just that when those interviewing me for my services had cited information on my LinkedIn profile which was no longer relevant. Here is my current LinkedIn profile.

Twitter Long Form = Big Competition For Medium, Linkedin Pulse

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

If long form really does become l-o-n-g, Twitter could present stiff competition for the popular no-gatekeepers platforms of Medium and LinkedIn Pulse. LinkedIn Pulse is more the businessperson's site. Twitter is working on the technology to go long form.

Medium.com = LinkedIn Pulse-Like Open Platform For Influence Publishing

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

It joins LinkedIn Pulse as an open platform to post on. Like LinkedIn Pulse, you can automatically link your post to Twitter, Facebook, and individual shares. As with LinkedIn Pulse, your own blog posts, tweets, and other digital material, you can repurpose your Medium material.

LinkedIn Is New Hangout For Professionals On Internet

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

The place to communicate has become LinkedIn. Obviously those in the know know to keep checking in on LinkedIn. Comment or even put a "like" and the author is bound to review your LinkedIn profile. LinkedIn took on that function. Maybe it's true.

Facebook = New Business Network (will it deliver smackdown on LinkedIn?)

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

The question hovering over Facebook's taking on a business persona is this: Will it deliver a smackdown on  the professional network - LinkedIn? Right now, executives are leveraging LinkedIn Pulse to sell themselves as well as their products and services.

LinkedIn - Self-Publish As An Influncer

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

Self-publishing on LinkedIn as an Influencer is a smart career move. Not too long ago the Influencer Section on LinkedIn had only been open to the big brandnames. So, how do you start self-publishing on LinkedIn? Of course, first you have to become a member of LinkedIn. Here is a recent Influencer piece I posted on LinkedIn. Officially it is called the Pulse Section.

LinkedIn Pulse - This Is A Power Sales Tool

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

That's the beauty of posting on LinkedIn Pulse. We put out there on LinkedIn Pulse a post which resonates. Then What I have observed in assisting clients with their LinkedIn Pulse strategy and content are they have to follow 5 musts. *.

Ghostwriting: Brisk Business in LinkedIn Profiles

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

  Increasingly I am getting requests to re-do professionals' LinkedIn profiles.   LinkedIn profiles are fluid. We are our LinkedIn profiles. Everything changes. That includes the kinds of materials we ghostwriters do. 

Your Client's LinkedIn Pulse Post Flopped - Delete

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

The potential exposure provided by posting on LinkedIn Pulse can be as great as having an opinion-editorial (op-ed) published in The Wall Street Journal. The potential downside can be equally huge. There is little traffic. No likes. No comments. That data - or the lack of them - are made public on the Pulse site. Your client looks bad. The good news is that Pulse platform allows you to delete. And that's what I recommend. Products fail and are taken off the market.

LinkedIn Profile, Et Al. - Think Headlines

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

Yes, that includes their LinkedIn profile, as Danny Rubin hammers on BusinessInsider. The traditional way to present on LinkedIn would be provide the job title. We experience the world in headlines. Not just the news. That's the result of the drama or melodrama injected into more and more human activities. That's to position and package them as worth paying attention to.

LinkedIn Pulse, The Smugs, No Learning Curve

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

That's why it's puzzling to observe on high-profile LinkedIn Pulse posts which consistently are in the no, single or only double digits in all the categories. Branding now includes the number of page views, likes, shares, and comments your published content receives. Yet the authors -- The Smugs - continue to use that platform. Their branding is dinged. It seems odd that they would not make it their business to attempt progress on the learning curve.

LinkedIn: Real time data collection, analysis

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

LinkedIn, the social network for careerists, could become the Facebook for professionals.  and 150 million around the world, LinkedIn has access to all sorts of information about careers. 

Oy Vey: The Land of LinkedIn Groups

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

The land of LinkedIn began to be filled with friendly helpful groups. Members had much to share.  And there was great joy throughout.  "We are learning so much." "  "We are making such wonderful contacts."

Your Wikipedia Page - Being on LinkedIn Not Enough

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

No, it's not enough for professionals to be on LinkedIn.  The difference between Wikipedia and LinkedIn is this: Players can contract with a ghostwriter like myself to create their profiles on LinkedIn. "We don't see you on Wikipedia."
