Sarah Palin on Linked-in
A presidential campaign first?
First off, for those of you that don't know, Linked-in is an online networking site for professionals. Sort of like Facebook for business, I suppose. I've had a profile on there for about a year now. My profile is here.
I just received a note this morning from one of the people in my Linked-in network pointing out that Sarah Palin now has a Linked-in profile as well, which is impressive from a campaign perspective. Just about every campaign now has a Facebook and My Space profile...but Linked-in is something I haven't really seen much of among candidates so far, so this tells me someone's thinking straight over at campaign headquarters.
Here profile is here. It states in part:
"My fellow Americans, come join our cause. Join our cause and help our country to elect a great man the next president of the United States. And I thank you, and I -- God bless you, I say, and God bless America. Thank you."
Sarah Palin's Specialties:
Attacking "business as usual," Oil Companies, Good Old Boy Networks, Government waste, Earmarks, and Pork Barrels. Strong experience within the Executive Branch of Government.
With each new campaign season, campaigns are finding it more and more useful (and necessary) to participate in our increasingly "networked" world...and that means making themselves available where the voters are.
