This blog is not so much about re-inventing LinkedIn as it is about bringing it back to the forefront as a marketing and business strategy tool. LinkedIn currently has over 467 million users and 40% of those users are on the platform daily. It is probably the best social platform for making B2B connections in our opinion.

Why LinkedIn
With Facebook and Twitter seemingly turning into more photo and news driven respectively LinkedIn seems to have stayed true to what it is. LinkedIn is a social platform for business professionals to connect and interact.

Re-Inventing LinkedIn
As stated above we are not re-inventing LinkedIn but rather re-inventing our commitment to using the platform. While we are still are Facebook and Twitter fans we want to connect with like minded business professionals and entrepreneurs. In the last couple of weeks while dropping into the platform more frequently we have found it to resinate with the type of content we are looking for, which is business, small business and business blogs. It has confirmed for us that if you haven’t been regularly using LinkedIn you should give it a try again, we have and enjoyed the content it is providing.
