LINKEDIN TRILOGY: Part 1. Top 10 Reasons You Should NOT Join LinkedIn Professional Network!
Berk, Ronald A.
Journal of Faculty Development, v27 n2 p62-66 May 2013
Disclaimer: I have been an active "free" user of LinkedIn for 5.463 years with more than 3000 (1st degree) connections from all over the world. I have no vested interest in LinkedIn other than as a user of the services it provides. Despite the fact that LinkedIn was originally designed as a network for business professionals, not academicians, I have learned a few techniques on how it can best serve my peers. LinkedIn has also added several features and apps over the years to address the specific needs of administrators and faculty. This article is an extension and update of a blog series I wrote 2.683 years ago to acquaint faculty with the features of LinkedIn.
