    I personally don’t have an account on there, apparently its a success, I know a few people that have it. I don’t think it will ever be as popular as facebook or twitter to be honest. I guess they used for different purposes though! Thanks for all your posts Mike. I enjoy reading them.

      Thanks Rochelle

      I would recommend getting onto Linkedin. I think it may become more popular/valuable than Facebook from a business to business point of view.

    Hi Mike

    wrt industry presence, does retail feature under any of the above as a sub-section or was there not enough space? This is really cool by the way. :)
