entertainment industry coach question 587:I'm just wondering what you think about actors being on linked in? something I need to do?

It can't hurt to be on LinkedIn, but so far, it's more the "suit" version of social media, whereas Twitter is for Flip flops and Facebook is a Gap sundress that can be dressed up or down. I'm on it, I'm also on Plaxo, but so far the only thing that has come out of LinkedIn is my ex boyfriend finding me and turning my life upside down for about a month ;-)

To really create relationships go with Facebook, set up a profile on LinkedIn just in case someone on it is looking for you, but I wouldn't spend too much valuable time on it, unless you learn of some new way to use it that is of value to freelancers. One thing you can do if you're on it, is join some of the entertainment industry groups and comment on the conversations. Again, that is a strategy used in the business world, I don't use it because it's not where I choose to focus my time. IF their were three of me (not as in multiple personalities but more like Multiplicity), I'd have one of my "me's" commenting on blogs all day long.
