I’m a serious LinkedIn user and a casual fan of the Facebook, but that’s it…I’m not hiring anymore. Fact is, the two of them do the job. LinkedIn has my business contacts and enough about me that people need to know. Facebook has now turned up most of the women I dated i high school (full disclosure: Zuckerberg didn’t need to assign a lot of server space for that). I have up to date contact info on Plaxo Plus, but I’m not going to invite people or join any groups. And it’s none of Plaxo’s damn business what “I’m up to.”
In the past week I’ve been invited to join three more networks: BlueChipExpert, Reunion.com, and Naymz (note, I am not adding hyperlinks, look them up yourself if you want). The last one bills itself as “powering reputable professionals.” Reunion.com wants to tease me with a salvo of “finding out who else is looking for me.” Sorry folks, you are too late. I’m sure you have a Powerpoint deck that you use to pitch VCs about how you only need 10% of Facebook, etc to provide an excellent ROI, but I’m not interested. If people want to find me…they can on one of the leading sites.
