    • Definition Linkedin is an interactive website platform for professionals to exchange experiences in order to improve their work praxis. According to Wikipedia, Linkedin is a business orientated social networking site which encourages professionals to contact qualified professionals with the aim of collaboration.

    • Uses 1. Interaction platform. Main use. 2. Instrument for professional contacts, to find a job or to identify other professional areas. Especially to recruit executives. ? 3.

    • Linkedin business model Where does Linkedin obtain profit? €? 1. Recruitment service for companies and headhunters. Different programme solutions to obtain advertisements for job offers and at the same time to ensure that the availability of the professionals to occupy these posts is not made public. 2. Marketing solutions. So-called geographic services which are tools used by companies to ensure that a message reaches people with a specific profile. On the other hand, advertising is not related with the activities of the members (like Adwords) but it is classified by sectors and other profiles. It is less intrusive. 6 “Linkedin at work” Generalitat de Catalunya. DG for Citizen Attention. Barcelona, April 2010 CC – BY 3.0
    • 2. Platform elements 7 “Linkedin at work” Generalitat de Catalunya. DG for Citizen Attention. Barcelona, April 2010 CC – BY 3.0
    • The key elements 1.Define correctly the different group/s. Interaction is richer if this is/these are well defined. 2. As it is a platform for interaction, it is good practice to participate and relate to others. Thus, it is www.linkedin.com/blackberry integrated with office automation tools (connection with Outlook) and an application has been developed for a BlackBerry. 8 “Linkedin at work” Generalitat de Catalunya.

    • The groups These are: 1. Open. 2. Closed. Access is by invitation. In all cases, privacy of the contents of the group is guaranteed. The groups are not indexable. Linkedin is a network for individuals and it is not a good idea for organizations to open personal profiles tempted by the idea of having a public URL of the type: www.linkedin.com/in/nomusuari 9 “Linkedin at work” Generalitat de Catalunya.

    • Management of the groups of organizations on Linkedin How can we manage several groups of a same organization on Linkedin? Proposal: 1. One group per department/area/division. 2. One common administrator-owner (an individual) for all the groups of the organization, who awards rights of administrator for each departmental group. As always, as in all social media tools, it is a question of encouraging decentralized management without running risks for the existence of the profiles/accounts/mailboxes and data protection. 10 “Linkedin at work” Generalitat de Catalunya.

    • Sections of a Linkedin group 1. Summary. To highlight a specific debate/question. Take advantage of Linkedin to generate debates that provide high value from entire debates initiated on own instruments such as blogs. 2. Debates. Forums to debate topics. 3. News. Publication by feeds. 4. Work. Advertisements for jobs. 5. Subgroups. These are created. 6. Group management and other aspects. It is necessary to promote the groups in external environments (blog, Facebook, Twitter...) as Linkedin does not facilitate dissemination. 11 “Linkedin at work” Generalitat de Catalunya.

    • 3. The ‘gencat’ group on Linkedin 12 “Linkedin at work” Generalitat de Catalunya. DG for Citizen Attention. Barcelona, April 2010 CC – BY 3.0
    • The ‘gencat’ group www.linkedin.com (els grups no tenen URL pública) 13 “Linkedin at work” Generalitat de Catalunya. DG for Citizen Attention. Barcelona, April 2010 CC – BY 3.0
    • Strategies in content management of the ‘gencat’ group 1. Make own promotion of ‘gencat’ group (blog, forums, etc.) 2. Automate the publication of contents in the section ‘News’ with feeds (via RSS) of the contents published on the other repositories and networks (mainly Twitter, blogs, Facebook...). 3. As debates on topics use the blog as a vehicle, on Linkedin comments of the ‘digest’ style or key summary of the contents debated in the second last post are published manually in the ‘gencat blog’. This permits a refining of the discussion (the work) on the network of what is debated in the main tool, the blog. 14 “Linkedin at work” Generalitat de Catalunya. DG for Citizen Attention.
