When I first joined LinkedIn back in 2006, I had no clue why I even joined. I wanted to keep in touch with some of my past co-workers in case there was an ex-employee reunion reality show or something. I’ll admit it, I started out as a passive player on LinkedIn. This is the part where I stand up and say “Hello, I am Asia Bird, and at one point, I did not LOVE LinkedIn”. I didn’t hate it, I just didn’t know what to do with it!
