The “must have” social media site for professionals, LinkedIn, released its fourth quarter and full-year 2011 financial results yesterday.  Among the numbers shared, LinkedIn reported that its membership ranks now total 150 million members.

There is no question that LinkedIn continues to grow its influence as the preeminent social networking sites for professionals.  Accordingly, the DARTON GROUP team suggests that you take the following 2 steps today to optimize your experience in using LinkedIn:

  1. Ensure that your LinkedIn Profile is 100% completed.  Most professionals would never dream of handing out an incomplete business card or a resume that is only 80% completed.  Like your business card and resume, your LinkedIn Profile reflects your professionalism.  Don’t show the business world anything less than a 100% completed profile on LinkedIn.  As an added incentive, LinkedIn claims that members with completed profiles are 40 times more likely to receive opportunities through LinkedIn.
