Great InfoGraphic about How to Use LinkedIn

This is a nice and simple step by step to get yourself up to date and connected on LinkedIn. In general I am more of a experimental social networker, however there is a lot of value to be found in your connections. It is fun to share photo's an other information on Facebook or Twitter, but as a business tool LinkedIn is king. As a sales and business development professional I find LinkedIn to be a valuable resource where you can find people in companies you want to talk with or as a resource to connect with like minded professionals in your field. The following info graphic was sourced from Business Insider, and though it was worth sharing.

Enjoy. John
