This post takes a look at the phenomenon of people moving from Twitter to LinkedIn. "I agree entirely with Michelle that it is about building relationships and sharing experiences,": writes Andrew Jacobs, "and it feels like there are a lot of people on LinkedIn who haven't worked that out yet." Instead, what we see is a "gold rush mentality on LinkedIn these days (with) some people are so desperate to stake their claim, they're pumping out content." But "it's not about blasting out sales pitches into a void, it's about cultivating genuine connections." So what is Jacobs doing? "Regular (daily) and short (less than 200 words) posts and articles." Maybe that works; I've seen some people (Donald Clark springs to mind) getting a lot of traction that way.
