I’ve heard people describe LinkedIn as the virtual chamber of commerce. The days of touchy-feely networking events with terrible coffee and stale cookies may be a thing of the past in the not so distant future. LinkedIn allows salespeople, leaders, networkers to build a virtual ‘tribe’ of followers. Networking can be done by following certain LinkedIn groups, by messaging certain people you want to meet or get to know, by sending InMails to get acquainted, people also use the search feature to find other like-minded folks in their space.
