LinkedIn Becomes the Yellow Pages

readers of this blog know that i like LinkedIn — it’s MySpace for grown ups. if you haven’t received an invitaiton to join my LinkedIn network e-mail then just let me know and i’ll send one. it’s worth it.

LinkedIn

well, this article in mashable! proposes that in the future LinkedIn will allow you find everything from a financial consultant to a law cutting service based on recommendations from people you trust (definitely a better way to do it, right?).

the prediction is well meaning and founded on real facts, but remember: anything that requires people to participate en masse to make it work seems like a dicey proposition.  just in case though, you may want to dust off some client recommendations and get a LinkedIn profile.  up to you.
