Linkedin looking a bit staid?

Weedle and Worky to grab market share from linkedin

Have recently signed up to new newish sites:


I have been a committed user of linked in for the last couple of years – as evidenced by approx. 600 connections.

I have to say I think there is plenty of room in the market for either worky or weedle to make a real impression. Linkedin did a good job of establishing a ‘serious’ social network – targeting business users. However I think both weedle and worky, incoming later to the market, are doing a superior job in being truer examples of social networking.

My initial impression is that the worky model is easier to understand. But perhaps weedle is something different.

Just shows you – cannot stand still in this market place.

  1. Just contacted by Worky re. setting up an account – use LinkedIn myself. From your experience, which do you find the best?

  2. I have found the linkedin, worky and weedle services complimentary. Linkedin is such an established presence in the business community that it’s a ‘no-brainer’ for now. Interestingly in last 6 weeks or so I have received more enquiries re possible consulting work via Weedle that via either linkedin or worky. But then there are many different options e.g. premium offerings which I am not currently availing of. Would be interesting to see any other feedback.
