I've definitely gotten leads and clients through LinkedIn. But that was then and this is now. Social media has changed greatly in just a few years. The key is to let your profile do the talking (with appropriate links) and avoid any outward selling, as David says, to people while leaving comments and engaging in networking activities."
Hi Yoni, OK. Don't know how I feel about the Little League thing. Fact is, there are times you win and loose in life and learning how to do both is probably an important life lesson. In social media, I agree with you though. From my own limited experience, the give and take is much more important. This doesn't really mean you shouldn't vote for people, like on Digg, Reddit or whatever, or "like" other people's stuff if you're into that whole Facebook thang. I think it just means you shouldn't look at it as a competition. I mean, sure you're trying to market yourself. I'll be happy if people vote for my stories when I get around to posting one here but I don't want 'em to feel like they have to. Vote for 'em if they're good. Don't vote 'em if they're not. I'll do the same. Same with RTs or whatever. If something goes viral or gets to the top of a list great, but I won't hold anything against anyone either way. Anyway, great reading your stuff, man, and I'll see you around. Cheers. "
