As you may know, I really believe in using the correct Social Media tool for the correct audience.  I have recommended for a long time that Twitter updates should be on Twitter and LinkedIn updates should be on LinkedIn. Your LinkedIn audience do not want to see updates as frequently as your Twitter audience and they certainly don’t want to see all those RTs, @s and #hashtags.

So I was delighted to see on Friday that Tweets will no longer be shown on LinkedIn!

What does this mean for your use of LinkedIn?  Well think about your audience and update your LinkedIn status with 1 or 2 quality updates a week that will get you noticed for talking about something worthwhile or sharing something valuable.  You should find your LinkedIn home page becomes full of interesting updates rather than just Tweets.

Let me know what you think about the change
