February Net2 Think Tank: Using Linkedin for Change

Claire Sale's picture

Linkedin is much more than just a site for building your resume and your recommendations from previous employers. While over 90 million people have Linkedin accounts, few seem to be talking about it's utility for social change anymore. An important player in the online community arena, we wonder if Linkedin still has potential as a space for change. This month, we're hoping to re-start the dialogue about Linkedin, and learn how organizations and individuals can use it to engage supporters.

How are you using Linkedin to support the efforts of your nonprofit or social enterprise? Which tactics seem to be working for your community - and which aren't? Tell us about how you're using Linkedin and all of the hints and tricks to curate and moderate that space for maximum impact. 

Share your best practices with the NetSquared Community as part of this month's Net2 Think Tank!
