I’m on LinkedIn, but I’m not too active. I can see the potential for networking with other professionals, but the vast majority of professionals (especially government folks) are not active members. I’ve learned to segment my social networks, but I prefer GovLoop for staying connected to public servants like myself. I try to use Facebook to stay connected to family and close friends. Twitter is my go-to for keeping up on the news and happenings.
My only gap is that my agency does not have an internal social network. I can see the real value in having a network just for agency employees.
