LinkedIn or Bust … uh, literally.

I’m putting the finishing touches on my presentation for Eat. Drink. Tweet. in Penticton, British Columbia.

It’s all about LinkedIn.

For those of you who follow my blog regularly (thanks, Mom), you’ll remember that I rated LinkedIn #2 overall, and Twitter #1. In the next rendition of my Top Social Media List, I’m certain these will reverse.


Twitter is great, and I love it to bits, but the reality is there’s more money to be made building a serious business network. And that’s what LinkedIn does the best.

The Answers app is the best ever, hands down. Forget about Quora, and Yahoo! Answers is history. And Google retired their attempt.

Forget about also ran’s Plaxo, Spoke, and XING. Forget about this Viadeo … just found this one tonight. LinkedIn is the category killer for business networking, just as Facebook is the category killer for personal networking. And Twitter is … well, just awesome … but different.

Check out this cool swag I got in my hotel room…

Thanks to Cannery Brewing, Tinhorn Creek and Black Cloud for the gifts!

There’s a special bonus during my presentation if you can name the person who stated the following:

Unless you’re dying, dead, retired forever, or too young to join, you should be on LinkedIn!

Quite simply LinkedIn is the future of business networking. Period.

Hint: It was me.
