Professional Social Networks (LinkedIn)

I have had a profile on LinkedIn for a few years so have some experience as a user of the network. I haven’t found it to have that much impact on my professional development. I think I may need to update my profile and add more of my accomplishments and experiences to get more out of it. I also need to login and use it a lot more frequently. If I did this I may get more out of the site.

I have not felt the need to join either or ResearchGate because I am not an academic or researcher. As LinkedIn is more general this seemed to be more beneficial for me.
