When social media first hit the scene, the main focus was to provide users with a way to connect with friends and family. Today, it has grown immensely.
Recently as I was reviewing my LinkedIn profile, I noticed my feed had a list of suggested “people I may know.” I found the list somewhat puzzling as it included people who seemed outside of my professional spectrum. I became increasingly curious as to what I may have in common with them. Why does LinkedIn recommend them? Moreover, will connecting with the following individuals bring professional value to me?
The sale of LinkedIn to Microsoft for $26.2 billion created waves, with people questioning why Microsoft has decided to move into the social media business to the future of social media itself.
