Demonstrating Social Media Value

Andrew Lark has a comment about LinkedIn.

He shows how valuable it is for job hunting (in his case recruiting).
It is this kind of exposure - public relations - that demonstrates the value of social media.

His comment begins:

I was extremely skeptical of LinkedIn but unlike Stowe and Jeff have found it to be pretty valuable. First for recruitment - the quality of the candidates I have seen through advertising on LinkedIn are fantastic - and I like the fact that some of them come recommended by people I trust. Second, it has proven to be immensely valuable in connecting with old colleagues and keeping my current network humming along
