Two popular social networking sites are LinkedIn and Facebook. While both are designed to connect people online, the two sites represent different types of connections with very different options and features.
“The Facebook social networking site is used to connect with a variety of people — your friends, family and those you work with, go to school with, or people you used to be friends or classmates with. In a general sense, where LinkedIn is designed to connect professionals, Facebook is designed to just connect people. When you join Facebook and create a profile, you will enter in key information which can help other people find you on Facebook.”
