The platform is a great tool for someone trying to find a job. I have personally used the platform to help me get my current position and will use it again once I am back in the job market. There are some people out there who claim the platform is useless. In my opinion, if you see the LinkedIn platform as useless then you don't really understand how helpful it can be in the digital age of 2017.

As we have to show the highlights of our blogs in the main page of our website. We choose Live Center as here it is very easy to embed those blogs in the home page. Also, this embeding thing was done by content creator so we don't have to reach to developer always.

Pros
LinkedIn
  • I like how it lets you publish long form content.
  • I love how it lets me copy and paste words and links from my Wordpress website, and it all comes over without me having to reinsert the links.

Cons
LinkedIn
  • I was never a fan of the way people connect on the platform. For example, if I want to connect with someone I have to at least know them or their email address. There are situations whereas I want to connect with people whom I do not know.
  • The platform is slowly turning into Facebook. More and more I see people posting things that do not belong. Linkedin is supposed to be a professional platform, I wish they would be more clear about that. People can and do post whatever they want, however some kind of reminder to people who use the platform would be nice.

  • The flow of comments could be improved.
  • The ability to turn off auto updates on a live blog doesn't exist.
  • Could add more reporting functionality.

The problem with Facebook for Business is that it is on Facebook. Facebook is a great way for a company to brand themselves. However a companies content is surround by other content that is often not professional. For example, if someone follows my company on Facebook and scrolls down their timeline and sees my post, it is intertwined in their feed with their Facebook friends. This could lead to your content being mixed in with others. With Linkedin, it is solely supposed to be used for professionals. People are not supposed to (even though some do) post things that may be deemed offensive. That is not the case with Facebook.

  • I think it raises the awareness of my SuperStar Careers brand. When I talk to people offline, they often tell me they read my articles and can give specific examples.
  • I've had a few prospects reach out to me. In the past 2 years, I'd guess I've had up to 10 people reach out to me for a assistance.
