My LinkedIn Diary

LinkedIn is a medium that many do not understand.

Some crave for likes, and shares, much like Instagram, while others tend to share rehashed (and often copied) content.

I just like to write a few snippets early in the morning, while wishing the birthday boys and girls (yes, I do that everyday), with a customised message that hopefully brings smiles on some faces.

A big fan of polls, almost all my posts contain them. Since one cannot embed such posts outside of LinkedIn, here is my workaround. You can visit the link at the end of most posts, and read (and vote) them on LinkedIn.

I hope you enjoy these:)
