Yesterday I was invited by Bruce Drake, former VP of News at NPR, to join the LinkedIn social network and I'm simply blown away by it -- okay so I'm a little late to this phenomenon.
Not only have I hooked up with some new friends, but have found this a remarkable community filled with incredible bright people willing to share their knowledge and expertise. The piece of this I really like is the section on endorsements where you can endorse the work of those in your network.
As I explore this, it seems that we have so much potential in Public Media to use these type of networks to build relationship and seek solutions with our audience.
Here's where you can find my LinkedIn page.
