Your LinkedIn professional profile should eliminate personal information and concentrate mainly on your career experience, your community service, and your professional accomplishments.

On LinkedIn, you can search for people you know (or want to connect with) but you can also use it to research companies. What social media sites do that can’t be done in person is show you how everyone in your company or city is connected.
