LinkedIn Is the Right Choice for Social Media Career Management

For many executives, the professional and personal don't mix in life or on the Internet.

An Office Team survey has disclosed that nearly half of executives surveyed were uncomfortable being Facebook "friended" by the employees they manage or their bosses.

Even though executives are leery of Facebook friend requests, career-focused LinkedIn draws the right line. That's good news for executives seeking to manage an online professional presence, since LinkedIn remains a professional “stop” for most recruiters. Online recruiter Jobvite reports that 95% of HR and recruiting professionals use LinkedIn to check out potential employees, compared to 59% using Facebook.
