Does LinkedIn Want to Be a Part of My Daily Life? Facebook Sure Does

TweetI use Facebook a lot (I do work at a company building games on the Facebook platform, after all). I also use LinkedIn a lot as well. Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about the differences between the two services. This is not a “will Facebook kill LinkedIn” type of post – I don’t think […]
