Blog: just-style launches Linkedin group
Joe Ayling | 29 October 2010
Modern day social media means that business meetings are as likely to take place in your living room as they are halfway across the world, and just-style continues to move with the times.
Never before has the style industry had so much opportunity to network, discuss and do business than under the current climate of convenience.
While there is no substitute for meeting in person, just-style has received a number of requests by conference goers to host some 'extra time' debating.
Accepting the challenge, the next step was finding a home for such a service from the toolbox of social networking sites available.
Twitter already serves a purpose to the just-style newsdesk, but anyone familiar with Tweeting knows that expressing an opinion in 140 characters has its limitations. Facebook is another great way to network, but is more cyber-pub than cyber-seminar.
Linkedin, therefore, seems the obvious place for just-style readers to convene.
Launched this week, the just-style Linkedin Group will host debates on breaking news, follow-up topical issues and, encourage members to network with each other and feedback to us.
