10 ways to get more out of LinkedIn

With more than 80 million users worldwide, LinkedIn has established itself as the premier social networking site for professionals. If you're job searching, looking to broaden your network or hunting for new partnerships, these 10 tips and tricks will propel you toward success.

Monitor Who's Viewed Your Profile

On the right side of your homepage, look for a box called "Who's Viewed My Profile." Click that link to see a statistics page that shows who has viewed your profile in the last week, such as "Someone at XYZ company" or "Someone in the Greater Boston Area." You'll only view more-detailed descriptions if you are a paid LinkedIn member.

If you don't want others to see that you've viewed their LinkedIn pages, be sure to change the corresponding privacy setting.

    Wonderful visual content here. Not all of us are taking advantage of Linkedin's networking opportunities through the presentation options.

    Many like myself who serve other clients' needs to build their internet presence often don't spend enough time building our own profiles like we'd want. You just got me excited to give my profile an overhaul.

    Thanks!

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
