Known as the “Facebook for professionals,” LinkedIn is a social media site that displays more than 50 million people’s resumes and allows for virtual business networking for those interested in keeping in touch or finding a job. Palin’s resume includes her position as “Vice Presidential Candidate” for the 2008 election and goes back to 1992 where she was the Council Member for the Wasilla City Council.
LinkedIn lists years of employment as well; her profile says Palin was the governor of the State of Alaska for two years and seven months.
Palin also notes that she is interested in “Job inquiries, expertise requests, business deals, reference requests, and getting back in touch.”
Her 2008 running mate John McCain joined LinkedIn during the campaign to participate in “LinkedIn Answers,” a part of the site where people can ask questions and get answers from professionals. McCain asked, “What is the biggest challenge America faces?”
