LinkedIn the Rolodex of the 21st Century!
Remember the Rolodex and Business Card Files
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 Once done we would feel satisfied until we needed one of the contacts and quickly learned the information was out-of-date!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.
