Great article but I just had to ask - is this still the case?
I seem to be able to view all the info for my 3rd degreen connections - even when I'm logged in. There doesn't seem to be a point in logging out and trying to connect with them that way. Am I missing something, or has LinkedIn changed their system since you wrote this piece?
Great article! Thanks for the tips. (I love that that there is a tool called "socialbro" too. That cracks me up!)
One thing though. I've noticed that for one of the Facebook communities I manage for a client there are a lot of European users. Over time it's become clear that my tweets and FB messages do best when I post between 9 pm and 11 pm EST.
It's critical to really understand your community to determine the optimal days/times for social media outreach. That's how you can have the greatest impact and maximize engagement with a brand.
Great article! I especially love your point about getting links on authoritative sites. It's so much more valuable to get a mention in a legitimate publication or well-written blog than a sketchy site with a high page rank. It just feels like a more honest way to do business too!
