How Big is Your Social Network?

As I approach my 200th LinkedIn contact, I noticed a tab I hadn't noticed before. Network Statistics. Right now, LinkedIn tells me I have 198 contacts. My 2nd degree (friends of friends) is a whopping 16,700+.

Anyone who asks why would I want to market using social media can now be shown some legitamate numbers.

Now only if you could import your Facebook friends to LinkedIn like your outlook or webmail address books.

Tangible *results* would make a better case. Just saying.
