building your business credibility.
LinkedIn Answers is a nice feature of this particular social networking
site where members can ask questions, answers questions posted by
other members, or simply browse through all the queries and solutions
posted. It’s actually one of the more popular features of LinkedIn and is
very similar to Yahoo answers.

make use of the feature to build credibility not only for yourself but for
your business as well.

answers for. Be careful though as there are certain rules and
regulations that you need to follow when using LinkedIn answers. Read
