LinkedIn or Ning for Innovation Community?
Which do people prefer for sharing interesting news, articles, videos, and all around community – Ning or LinkedIn?
I created an Innovation Community a year ago on Ning and to date it has 42 members.
I created the Continuous Innovation group on LinkedIn two months ago and it already has 470+ members.
LinkedIn groups don’t require people to join yet another social network and build yet another profile (most people are already members of LinkedIn – or should be). LinkedIn is part of many people’s routine, and if it’s not they can sign up to receive a daily or weekly digest of group activity by e-mail.
LinkedIn groups may not offer all of the functionality of Ning groups, but they do offer discussions, job postings, and the ability to share news articles or other links. I think that’s good enough.
What do you think?
Care to discuss this in the Continuous Innovation group?
