In today’s age, there seems to be such a large desire to be able to communicate with anyone at the drop of a hat. With facebook taking over the younger generations, this leaves older folk wanting something for themselves. Of course why would they want something that merely serves as a form of communication though, when they can use so many facets of the internet to help them out.


This is where LinkedIn comes into play. This website is like other job search websites in that it is an easy way for employers to find employees, but it offers so much more. You are able to connect with others that you may know, and the more people you know, the more job opportunities are available to you. At the same time though, you are able to communicate in many of the same ways as are offered by facebook.

This is a much more practical social networking website for older generations, and I predict it will become much more commonly used in the near future.

  1. Ya so adults stay off facebook its for students.

  2. i think Facebook has become so “general” that it will overtake LinkedIn. It is only a matter of time when Facebook realizes that they can make their social networking more businesslike and professional while being general as it is. Zuckerberg and his team are smart enough, and they will appeal to the professionals and “adults” of this world.
