In the Social media verse LinkedIn is an underrated opportunity.

LinkedIn just doesn’t get the kind of public “Media” attention it deserves. But this quiet giant is an essential resource for any business owner or professional, no matter what your field of study or interest. And while it does not capture headlines it does attract interest.

One feature, in particular, that you should consider taking advantage of are LinkedIn groups. These ongoing, virtual, round table discussions allow people to share problems and search for solutions to improve their respective industries.
