Michael Eisenberg (no relation), a partner and blogger at Benchmark Capital, is in need of a new name for his blog, Six Kids and a Full Time Job, now that a 7th has arrived — talk about a full-time job! — shares his experiences with FaceBook and LinkedIn.
LinkedIn is valuable and connects me to many entrepreneurs and potential recruits but, anecdotally, the “senior staff” is hanging out on Facebook and searching for contacts!
Jeffrey and I have been doing some similar experimentation. Jeffrey’s been focused on LinkedIn (here’s his profile) and I’ve been frolicking on Facebook (here’s my profile). GrokDotCom readers should feel free to befriend either one or both of us.
While LinkedIn currently has a greater volume (in numbers) of our “friends,” the velocity of requests on Facebook has been much greater as of late.
Are you on either one?
Many are thinking differenty about Facebook than they do about LinkedIn. Others are concerned with how much time they waste and how to manage it. According to the Telegraph, over 70% of businesses in the U.K. have blocked Facebook from within their company.
What’s your experience with both? Have you used either one successfully in your business? What do you think the future holds for either one?
