    Should I get Facebook

    I haven't had a Facebook for three years, but as a recent college grad I'm starting to think it may be a useful networking tool. How do you in the working world feel about Facebook?

    Re: Should I get Facebook

    Facebook is not really a networking tool. Twitter maybe. But Facebook means someone has to friend you (or vice versa) and then you see them post about how proud they are about their kids, their workouts, etc.

    Facebook is for posting incriminating pictures of drunken nights that get you fired from work.

    I have a Linkedin account, but it doesn't seem like you get the same personnel connection.

    Linkedin for networking I suppose (I still think Linkedin sucks imo).

    Facebook for jacking around with buddies and wasting time while at work.

    Depends what kind of networking your looking for. Linkedin is awesome for professional networking, but not so much if you just want to keep up with friends from highschool, college, etc.

    I can agree with this. It's easy to kill a lot of time on FB, especially if you have a smart phone. It was great for killing time in class though, and now that I have graduated it is really useful for keeping up with people.

    I agree. I use Linkedin to network with others in my field. Facebook is just for family and friends.

    If they're in your field, couldn't you just walk up to them and talk?

    Sorry to everyone else, bad Agronomy joke.

    I somewhat agree with you. Linkedin is full of blowhards puffing there chests out looking for validation.

    Yeah, LinkedIn seems to be getting stupid a lot more quickly than FB ever did. At least for me. If I was looking for a different job, it would be great, though. I pretty much just try to stay friendly with the recruiters on there in case that happens.
