LinkedIn again

I haven’t been following the technical changes at LinkedIn carefully, but all of a sudden they’re starting to recommend specific LinkedIn members who are likely to be my professional contacts — and they’re actually doing a fairly good job of it.  This seems to be a data mining effort that could be an excellent way to extend the social network.

But aside from staying in touch with particular folks, I haven’t really figured out how to use LinkedIn for networking. For instance, how would I “advertise” the upcoming Science House Girls Collaborative Kickoff Meeting. How could we create an AAUW “group” and would that help us connect with the varied expertise of the LinkedIn members who list AAUW as one of their activities?

May take some more thought — but back to non social-networking work for awhile…
