Today at the Web 2.0 Summit in San Francisco, LinkedIn CEO Jeff Weiner took the stage to talk with host John Battelle. One question was about why we need LinkedIn in a world increasingly run by Facebook? Weiner had a two-word answer to that: keg stands.
The differences between LI and FB are signficant and a world without one would be a shame.
LI is a great source of business talent and communication and FB has some of that also. FB is much more about someone’s whole life and much less about their business life.
I look forward to seeing more as this dialogue continue.
