In a world where fake news is dominating headlines, more people are turning to LinkedIn for building connections because they know it’s packed with influencers and business-minded thought leaders.
“Fake news will never stop happening as long as there is an agenda to be pushed… And there always is. FB has become incredibly crowded with non-newsworthy ‘stuff’. What was social and fun has now become ads and agendas.
Business-minded people have shifted to LinkedIn where there are real people, thought leaders, business drivers, people who are actually doing something useful with their knowledge and experience.
But it depends on what you want. Fake news to distract or thought leaders to accelerate growth,” According to Matt Clark, CEO of the Virtual Edge.
As Facebook, its advertisers, lawyers and content creators jockey for position, Linkedin continues steady growth with very few complaints and even fewer legal challenges.
