For those of you not familiar with Linkedin, it is a Social Networking site you can use to connect with others at a professional level and exchange information, ideas and opportunities. You can find past and present colleagues and classmates quickly. You can discover inside connections when you’re looking for a job or new business opportunities. Linkedin also announced Twitter integration to enable you to update Twitter and Linkedin status updates.
