Luis

Both platforms are very interesting to me and I am very active on both:

1) LinkedIn offers more diversity in opinions, industries and exposes you to different things than just project management.

2) Projectmanagement.com is a platform for project management practitioners mostly so most of the subject discussed here, articles and webinars are related to project management.

3) LinkedIn offers the opportunity to connect to a wider audience but your level of secutiy exposure is higher as your profile is somehow open to more than 360 Million people.

4) Projectmanagement.com site is very basic. You can't add emojis, likes, videos, photos, or even edit comments and so on. In a way this is good because it minimizes security breaches but on the other hand it is restrictive.

5) On LinkedIn, your exposure to recruiters and job search is much wider and more diverse.

Those are my quick 2 cents.

Dear Rami
Thank you for participating in this reflection and for your opinion

And what your contribution :-)

I asked this question because, to my surprise, many people on ProjectManagement.com have been sending me invitations on Linkedln
Dear Luis,

Globally , to seek jobs or to advertise our profile, LinkedIn is by far more effective in a labour perspective.
Project Management.com is more effective to acquire knowledge, obtain tools of PM, to exchange ideas and clarify doubts, for PMP's obtain PDU's and to some advertise and sell their services directly throw offering or indirectly by built a reputation and network but I think this works mainly to EUA and Canada.

Dear Alexandre
Thank you for participating in this reflection and for your opinion

Do you consider that, participating in ProjectManagement.com, we only built a reputation and a network in the USA and Canada?

You're welcome. That doesn't surprise me Luis because many have profile here, not active and are active on LinkedIn so they take this platform as an opportunity to connect with professionals on LinkedIn.

Dear Luis,

I only can consider facts.
1 - All that is new, happens in EUA and Canada before happening else where.
2 - The major events occur frequently in EUA, and that some events every now and then in the rest of the world.
3 - The first persons to have access to new certifications and become instructors are from EUA and Canada , everyone's know that the first ones are always in advantage.(BCG Matrix)
4 - You can build a world network , but is really effective or is just a bunch of connections.
5 - In the end the center of the world is EUA.
6 - A concrete sample, for example for DA upcoming workshops in the next months:

American continent: ( until April more or less)
Canada - 10 workshops
USA. - 7 workshops
Mexico - 9 workshops
Brazil - 1 workshop

Rest of the world
Italy - 1 workshop
UNITED KINGDOM - 1 workshop
NEW ZEALAND - 1 workshop
Romania - to be annouced
SOUTH AFRICA - to be annouced

America 27 - Rest of world 5, way to unbalanced
Fact : American continent is the center of the world

7 -. Who are the reviewers of PMBOK7 , I could bet that about 70% are from American continent.

Etc..... ( I am not being diplomatic)

Luis -

I rarely find that LinkedIn discussions will challenge me intellectually - for me, it is a useful professional networking site and primarily focused on sharing updates and promoting one's brand.

This community, on the other hand, goes beyond mere networking to support knowledge sharing and creation.

Over time, I hope to see it also become an effective platform for 1:1 and group mentoring...

I spent time on both networks daily, but more time in this community than on LinkedIn although I've been a LinkedIn user since the early days of that platform and only started actively participating here in 2018.

What prevents this from happening today?

What improvements must be made for this to happen?

George Freeman and I have had a couple of conversations with the community engagement folks here to explore options for this - stay tuned!

LinkedIn is more interesting to me in general, but that's because I get a wide variety of topics from my network.

For PM specific content, I like projectmanagement.com.

Dear Wade
Thank you for participating in this reflection and for your opinion

In your opinion, considering the Talent Triangle, would the themes chosen for the debate be broader? (Example: I see some strategy debates)
Hello Luis: I spend more time here because I am not actively seeking a job change, and I gain so many things from this community on a daily basis.
