LinkedIn is to your professional contacts what Facebook is to your friends. Think of it as your professional Facebook page.

Users can browse other pinboards for inspiration, “re-pin” images, or “like” photos.

  11. 11. 5(Continued) • Google cache – as Google crawls the web to index sites, it takes snapshots of each page as a back up in case the current page is not available. These pages become part of Google’s cache. A user who clicks on a link that says “cached” will see a previous version of the site. Even if you succeed in removing information from a website, the Google cache copy may still exist for weeks and allow Google users to see the deleted information. WEB TERMS TO KNOW
