    If that's true, then how do you explain that every major brand on the planet has a FB page (except google, but I'm sure you know why that is). IBM want to look unprofessional? Microsoft? Coca cola? Adidas?

    FB is one of the most recognisable brands ever, worth over $100Billion, in what way does this fail to meet your personal definition of whats professional and what isn't? Do you have a FB page?

    Still waiting for an answer stephen, perhaps you've been busy.
    It's 530 people, but do you really get it?

    Love and use both networks, but I definitely go to LinkedIn when I have the "professional hat" on. No longer can you count on job postings and resume boards like Monster/Dice/CareerBuilder. Now you have to be proactive to find good resources via LinkedIn. I definitely encourage my network of friends to build out their LinkedIn profile because that will probably be where there next job finds them.

    i found this article searching for how many people are on linkedin, and also looking into linked in vs facebook for business.

    i see it is now a few years old, and wanted to note that HP's Facebook page now has over 665,000 fans, while their linkedin page has over 52,000 followers.

    i have been hearing of linkedin being the next big thing for businesses, but as a small business owner, i have yet to see any indication of that happening. is it still in the works? am i missing something? what's the current outlook?

    Twitter is far below technologically than Facebook, but despite this, both are so high…
    But I personally prefer the sophistication of LinkedIn for business purposes.

    the question is "which networking site is more powerful in professional way?"
    so my answer is Facebook no Way
    it LinkedIn where professionals roam around.

    For me LinkedIn is good. Facebook is also good but LinkedIn is better in terms of business.

    Very well put. LinkedIn is a great place to network with business contacts, past employers, former co-workers, friends, etc. I'm not sure what new business I generate there, but it never, ever hurts to network.

    In this day and age, it's just smart, and almost necessary, to have a presence on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn.

    If you consider number of visitor Facebook wins but if you consider quality and maturity of visitor i believe Linkedin wins here
