LinkedIn the Rolodex of the 21st Century!


LinkedIn the Rolodex of the 21st Century!

Remember the Rolodex and Business Card Files

Rolodex

Rolodex

In days of old we depended upon our Rolodex or business card files to keep our contacts organized. We would spend time alphabetizing, organizing, and re-organizing our contacts trying to find the best organization. Once done we would feel satisfied until we needed one of the contacts and quickly learned the information was out-of-date! What were we to do? Truly, it was frustrating because trying to locate the individual and get current information was tedious, if not impossible.

Along Comes LinkedIn

Today we live in the world of LinkedIn and other social media where our contacts, ideally, keep their information current. We are only responsible for our own information versus trying to keep everything current for all of our contacts.

LinkedIn Even Notifies Us When Our Contacts Update Their Profiles

Not only is LinkedIn a proactive system where our contacts maintain their own information; it’s a system that notifies us when changes are posted. What a great way to stay current.

  1. Yesterday, while I was at work, my sister stole my iPad and
    tested to see if it can survive a twenty five foot
    drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now destroyed
    and she has 83 views. I know this is totally off topic but I
    had to share it with someone!

    • Hopefully all of your contacts are on your electronic Rolodex and were not on the iPad. Note to self; iPads cannot withstand a 25 foot drop! Is you sister purchasing you a new iPad?

  2. An interesting discussion is worth comment. I think that you ought to publish more about this topic, it might not be a taboo matter but usually people do not speak about these topics. To the next! Cheers!!
