YouTube explanation from the company itself.

Five Reasons to Learn LinkedIn.

Mashable explains why you should get a Linked-In account:

If you want to give others a three-dimensional view, providing a LinkedIn URL offers quick, direct access to an individual’s ever-expanding professional network of connections and involvement.

Lori Hedrick, vice president of human resources at Marcus Thomas, a full-service, integrated advertising and public relations agency with a focus on audience insights and idea generation, suggests just using your LinkedIn profile instead of a paper resume.

“Overall, it provides the same format as a resume, yet it’s much more powerful and much more efficient. It shows contacts, recommendations and groups — even books you’re currently enjoying — and all in real time. And [it] provides a thoughtful, truthful and smart summary of our credentials, as opposed to time spent finding the perfect font, format and layout. Not to mention, it’s easy to both update and share with others.”
