Dec 01, 2008: Noodling (socially)...

...with creating Rosenfeld Media groups for both Facebook and LinkedIn.

Now don't get me wrong. Apples and oranges. I really love both services. And Christina, who's now at LinkedIn. They'd better be paying her really, really well.

But it's definitely easier to get going virally in Facebook. About 70 fans in about four hours, and a few helpful comments. In fact, the process of figuring out how to get it set up was aided quite a bit by a few of my 200 plus Facebook friends.

In LinkedIn, I have about 500 contacts. But, um, they're not friends. At least they don't feel that way. Sure, it's a business network, but I don't feel like there's anyone I can turn to for help. And it's far, far harder to invite those contacts to join.

Both services have their respective benefits. Sometimes a tighter, more restrictive network has its purposes. And it's far too early to make a judgment here. But I figured out how to get things going pretty quickly with the Facebook group. I'm still grappling with the LinkedIn group.

Some help here?

If you want to kick the tires on either or both, here you go: RM LinkedIn, RM Facebook.
