The adage "It's not how big it is, it's how you use it" can be applied to LinkedIn: this Web-based network of social relationship can be huge, and contain millions of members, yet the value you derive from it depends on how you use it to your own advantage.

This User Manual shows you how.

But first, a word of caution. The ideas posted on this blog are only ideas, and are worth nothing whatsoever, until you actually implement them. Like they say, ideas are worth a dime a dozen, but implemented ideas are priceless.

Also, we don't pretend to have all the answers, but we do submit that only by systematically studying and analyzing the underlying dynamics of the new economy, which relies increasingly more on human capital than financial capital, can we learn to maximize the benefits we get from LinkedIn.

Feel free to post your comments, thanks.
