If you haven’t yet become active on LinkedIn, now is a good time to start.
For two reasons:
1. Because LinkedIn has many more active members and is still growing.
2. Because LinkedIn has finally committed to a strong mobile presence.
That means both a growing active user base as well as users who will respond to immediate offers more quickly.
