Professional Networking on Social Network Services


While I was reading the case for this week, LinkedIn, I came across Social Networks Services providing the opportunity to use professional network applications. Of course, our dear beloved Facebook also provides this option, one of these applications is called BrancheOut. I myself tried this application once on Facebook, because I was invited by a friend of mine. I was wondering if this application is becoming more and more popular and found an arcticle about professional networking on SNS. (Doyle, 2012)

This article states that young people care less about the separation of their professional lives and their private lives. However, if they do want to use their SNS for professional networking, they should become more aware of the information they post. One should definitely limit photos posted on their profile and choose their friends wisely. Do you people think that you will use Facebook (or other SNSs) for professional networking? Take a look at the BracheOut site aswell, maybe you will be surprised about how many friends of you are already joining!
