With over 259 million members across 200 countries, LinkedIn now earns two new members every second. Even more astounding is the fact that 35% of LinkedIn members log in to their account daily.
If you haven't visited your LinkedIn profile, now might be the time to dust it off and hop back in to this social network!
The top three etiquette tips via +Alyssa Gregory
-1. Use a real photo of you
– One key part of completing your LinkedIn profile is uploading a headshot or photo. Sure, you could use a picture of your dog,
Fluffy, but keep in mind that LinkedIn is a professional network. In order to form genuine connections, people want to know who you are. A professional headshot is always the best choice.2. Check your account on a regular basis
– You don't need to be logged into LinkedIn all day long, but if you're interested in growing your network, you should log in at least a few times a week to respond to messages, accept connection requests and interact with other users.3. Customize your connection requests
– When you request a connection with someone else, delete the LinkedIn message template that says, “I'd like to add you to my professional network on LinkedIn,” and write a short, personal message that highlights how you met or know each other and why you'd like to connect.
