Knowing WHY you want to use LinkedIn will help a lot with how to use LinkedIn.

When you know your reasons for using LinkedIn it is time to get to know the tool.

LinkedIn was bought my Microsoft a while back for $26 billion. This shows you how big LinkedIn actually is.

After this, LinkedIn had a big update. They changed the layout as well as functionality on LinkedIn.

The layout was a bit dated. Now it is fresh and more interactive. There is also a big drive towards using video on LinkedIn.

When logged into LinkedIn you can see a whole bunch of options and functions. Here is my screen when logged into LinkedIn.

I suggest you start working on the main buttons on top. This will give you an idea on what to do in each section. From there go into the details.
