LinkedIn and Connected

February 18, 2011 at 1:15 pm Leave a comment

We’ve been searching around in the social media dark lately, looking for the tool that would connect us to our Brown community online.  And… small drumroll please, we’ve found it.  Turns out, our university community feels most comfortable on LinkedIn.

On Monday, we took our own advice and created a profile for our organization, adding information such as publications, suggested readings, and our interests.  Then we began connecting with others.  We sent out requests, and as a result have (to date) connected with 91 people.

As we come to the final stages of our ADVANCE grant, we have been widening our circle, providing services to the greater Brown academic community.  Until now, twitter has been our dominant social media tool to connect with others interested in similar topics.  Now we’re also reaching our original target audience online.

Connect with us! Check out the new button on our website and our new LinkedIn profile: http://www.linkedin.com/in/brownadvance
