    Start a RBW LinkedIn Group?

    All,
    Some of you may use LinkedIn for professional purposes. At present, no group exists for CCR-specific divers (you can, of course, join the PADI group if the inclination strikes you!). I would like to start a group for rebreather users, but I have a few questions for the community:

    1) Which logo/image should we use?

    2) Should an account on Rebreather World be a pre-requisite for membership? At present, I think ownership of a rebreather should be the only requirement.

    Post to this thread if the project seems interesting to you.

    Spence

    I have joined LinkedIn because a number of people that I know requested me to join. However, I still don't exactly know what people do there, and how it works.

    How about giving an explanation of this?

    It's primarally designed around business relationship/matrix/introductions....

    Link up w/ the people you work with, have worked with to provide cross introductions. It's also taking a spin lately w/ non-working relationships and educational backgrounds...

    Think 7 degrees of seperation... somehow we're all linked..., someone who knows someone who worked w/ someone who dated someone who etc...

    Re: Start a RBW LinkedIn Group?

    I currently use linkedin, and I think that this is a great idea.

    The professional networking and contacts that have been able to develope through linkedin are invaluable.

    I would would really like to see a my current linkedin profile associated with a rebreather group. So if in the future I decide that I need to get some new Rebreather toys, I could look in the group and find a RB diver that has made a career of investing and savings...etc.

    Let me know if you get this going because I would love to join.


    Thanks

    I've found LinkedIn to be invaluable in business for networking: think of a company you need to reach (for sales, research, whatever) and it will tell you how to network your way there. I use it once every couple of weeks or so.

    I don't think rebreather stuff is directly applicable given for me it's a business tool, but hey why not? Create the group and I'll join it.

    The online tool I use for "fun" networking is Facebook. If there were a rebreather group in FB, I'd likewise join it.

    There are quite a few, including a rebreatherworld group, australian rebreather divers, rebreather cave divers, kiss divers, etc etc etc......

    Just make sure you add me to your group so that I can call you and try to entice you to take a better job working for another company. Then you will be helping me to buy more toys and fund more CCR trips and I will be greatly appreciative. That's what Professional Recruiters use it for...ummm sorry Headhunters.

    Linked in is for work....

    Facebook is for fun...

    Personally I would not use Linked in for any rebreather groups...
