Observed Behavior Change: My Social Networks

I'm spending an increasing amount of time interacting with my network via FaceBook rather than LinkedIn these days.

Am I the only one? Is this a greater trend? Does this bode ominous things for LinkedIn? Could Steve Hatch actually be right? ;)

I saw that Jeff Pulver is abandoning LinkedIn for Facebook. There is more happening on FaceBook. Some half-wit wag-- I forget who, it was a couple of months ago-- thought Facebook should buy LinkedIn. I pointed out that it was rapidly becoming too late for that. The network is replicating itself on Facebook, making LinkedIn worthless as a purchase.

That said, I keep a foot in LinkedIn for those I know or knew that still think it's the hottest. thing. Gotta stay where the people are, even if it's in 2 places.

I have to agree with you, Doug. There is definitely more happening on FaceBook, but it still doesn't provide the value of LinkedIn. It's just a different type of environment delivering different types of connections.
