34 Things To Do On LinkedIn (other than Post Your Resume)
LinkedIn is another of the four Grande Dames of social networks (the big 4 are Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube at the moment, by number of users and social popularity). Think of LinkedIn as an online, dynamic rolodex and resume all rolled into one.
