LinkedIn  is a business-oriented social networking site founded in December 2002 and launched in May 2003[1] mainly used for professional networking.

The purpose of the site is to allow registered users to maintain a list of contact details of people they know and trust in business. The people in the list are called Connections. Users can invite anyone (whether a site user or not) to become a connection.

This list of connections can then be used in a number of ways:

  • A contact network is built up consisting of their direct connections, the connections of each of their connections (termed second degree connections) and also the connections of second degree connections (termed third degree connections). This can be used to gain an introduction to someone you wish to know through a mutual, trusted contact.
  • It can then be used to find jobs, people and business opportunities recommended by someone in one's contact network.
  • Employers can list jobs and search for potential candidates.
  • Job seekers can review the profile of hiring managers and discover which of their existing contacts can introduce them.

review by . December 22, 2008
I go into phases in my "internet life" when I go nuts and sign up for a membership to everything on the internet.  10 blogs, 10 new "email me when there are new sales," anything and eveything that looks interesting.    So when I was introduced to LinkedIn, obviously I joined.  I wasn't quite sure what it was, so let me break it down for you.   You sign up and create a profile with your info... pretty standard for most of these sites.
