Keeping LinkedIn Professional – The Do’s & Don’ts

Has LinkedIn become just another social media website? It seems like it is. I have noticed that a lot people are using it for personal reasons, and not using it in a professional and good manner. It seems like it is being used as a dating site, and unprofessionally.

LinkedIn is a website for employers, employees, those seeking employment, building your online resume in the working world, your work, educational background, the languages you speak and volunteer experience. LinkedIn should solely be used for those purposes only. If you create an account on LinkedIn, always realize that you are sharing your profile alongside CEO’s, Executives, Managers, Employment scouts and so much more. It is very important to have a professional attitude and not treat LinkedIn as just another ordinary social media site.

LinkedIn is not Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, MySpace website. Here are the do’s and don’ts and how to keep yourself professional at all times.

01. When Creating an Account on LinkedIn, develop your profile by putting your educational, employment and volunteer background

02. On building your resume, never put “I” in your tasks and skills as the person who is reading your page knows that it is you, so you do not have to add that in.

03. It is always a good idea to post a professional picture of you on your profile. Do not post pictures that you have with your pet, not with other people in it, not to wear revealing clothing, to keep yourself groomed, and presentable in your photo.

04. Always demonstrate a professional attitude if others contact you. Be aware if they are spam or they are trying to endorse and selling something. Do not respond to them and just delete the message.

05. Do not put your full Birth-date, Marital Status, and other personal information about you, Always keep it professional and solely just about your Educational, Volunteer and employment experiences.

06. Always maintain your profile, network with others in the same interests and field as you. Interact, join in groups that are in relative to you.

07. You do not need to get a premium profile just to find out who is visiting your profile. A basic profile is just good enough.

08. It is not a Dating website and it is not a good idea to find love on a professional website. Be discreet, set your standards high and do not answer. Just simply delete and block people. Not the place for it.

09. Do not post comedic pictures, emotional status messages, selfies and inappropriate things on your profile.

10. Lastly, always be careful with people who over endorse you with whom you never really spend time with, or have never worked with. It is nice to endorse people, but keep that to minimum. There is such a thing as over endorsing, that will make the person over qualified and will send the wrong message out to those who do not know you. So watch out with that. – Also do not request others to make a testimonial about you. Let others do it without asking.

That is all. I hope this will help you make the right decisions when using LinkedIn. All the best and Good luck.

Save Michael Muhney — Fans Are Heartbroken

Hello, in the past 48 hours, Social Media recognition has gone through the roof to reinstate Michael Muhney who plays Adam Newman on The Young and the Restless and he was let go from the show. I find that to be so unfair. Many Groups and Pages on Facebook have been created, and many fans on twitter are writing hashtag’s to tweet #savemuhney #savemichaelmuhney #muhneymovement #yr #michaelmuhney and so much more. Now more than 1.3 million signed petitions have been signed and will continue to grow. We cannot stay silent and we must voice our rights. We fans have a say more than anything else.

Its like building a home, but without the foundation, it will collapse, its like that with Michael Muhney, he is the foundation and we love him and want him back on our Show. We Young and The Restless fans are not just fans, we are a family and we stick together in thick and thin and we stand tall together and we will get justice. We love you Michael Muhney!

Fans of The Young and The Restless – Upset and Disappointed

In the past few weeks we have heard about Michael Muhney (Adam Newman), Billy Miller(Billy Abbott), and several months before we heard that Michelle Stafford(Phyllis) has left the show, and Billy and Adam are on the way out as well. When Jeanne Cooper Passed away in May, 2013, The Young and The Restless and the Soap Industry lost one of its Iconic Members, Actresses, that was the face of Y&R. That alone was so upsetting for many supporters, and fans. It took a while for us to mourn her passing in real life, and it still is for us.

What is disappointing and upsetting is that all these changes are happening so fast, and these talented actors and actresses are being let go. I know in my previous blog, I have written about this, and I know that this is not real life, and its a story, and its a soap opera in a fictional city, with a story line that is being fed to Television and are being transmitted to every fans homes, but for some The Young and The Restless, seems and is so real to them. Fans spend an hour a day tuning into their favorite show. Playing around fans feelings and emotions and their dedication and support for this show and not appreciating fans, by giving back great quality is something a lot of us cannot even fathom, and cannot even believe that it is happening or has happened.

We all know what happened when they were going to let go of or When Eric Braedan who plays Victor Newman was going to get off Y&R, Petitions went around, everybody was so ticked off and angry about this whole situation, things got out of hand, but it seems that Michael Muhney’s and Billy Millers exit has really gotten fans even more Upset and disappointed. I cannot believe that the executives and those high up in CBS are tolerating this, and how they are letting this happen. They do not appreciate fans at all. It is all about making a quick buck to their pockets. If these executives appreciated us, then we would not be going through all these problems, we would not be going through these issues right now.

I know that the Actors and Actresses who are presently on the show now are not to blame as they appreciate, love and respect fans, that they want to give back to us and I can see that from their twitter, Facebook, Instagram or whatever place they post and they share their personal lives with us as well, and they share so much with us. It is the people high up who have to ruin and rain on Fans Parade, and they have to be the ones who mess everything else up for us all. In the end we suffer the most. They do not realize that.

I have met incredible and lovely Fellow Soap fans like myself in the past 24-48 hours and I can feel their pain and anguish of what they are going through, I will be by their side and I too will stop watching after January 30th, and I too will no longer be a fan, and that will take effect once, I do not see Billy Miller, Michael Muhney on the show. As far as I am concerned, I will go spend my One hour doing something else, and I can be going on with my life’s responsibilities. So I stand tall with other fans. We are disgusted and we are furious. Thank you for ruining a good thing you had Y&R….

The Young and The Restless – Fans Are Not Pleased

Since over 20 years ago, I began to watch The Young and The Restless, and many actors and actresses have come and gone throughout the years, but recently in the past 2 years or so, many changes have been happening and many of the actors and actresses are being let go. As if the loss of Jeanne Cooper who played the iconic star Katherine Chancellor who passed away in real life in May, 2013, wasn’t grief enough for us all, which the show will never ever be the same without the patriarch of the show. Things changed drastically since then and I do not know how much more of these changes us Fans can handle anymore.

Now, Michael Muhney who plays Adam Newman on the show. Victor Newman’s son, he has been let go from the production, as well as Billy Miller who plays Billy Abbott on the show. It is not fair for us fans all to have characters that we have grown to love spend our 1 hour with Monday to Friday’s, being changed around. Us fans are not pleased with all these changes. These producers, executives do not realize that the Fans are the bread and butter of shows, that we are the reason why they have ratings, were the reason why they are number one for the past 25 years. These recent changes can break that streak. Now there will be a boycott going around to not watch the show on January 31st, the day after Michael Muhney (Adam Newman)’s last air date which will be January 30th. Also David Tom is going to Replace Billy Miller as Billy Abbott, but Billy Miller has done an incredible job.

We fans deserve the last say, were the ones who have the most right among anything else. I know that the actors and actresses on the show care, adore and love their fans, but its the people who are high up that mess everything else up, hiring people who cannot do the job right with terrible writing and story lines now have become so boring and making fans angry. I am not trying to brag or boast about myself, but I feel that I should go to the rescue and save this show and do all the writing myself for Y&R. They would save themselves a lot of hassle, and they will save themselves many fans, that they can lose if they do not smarten up about the casting. These executives do not know how much they are playing with Fans emotions and feelings. This is not a joke to us. Games should not be played when it comes to fans. We want to be with our TV Family for years to come, but if this is going to continue none of us will watch anymore

Fans spend so much of their time on message boards, forums, Facebook pages and groups, they spend an hour a day of their busy lives tuning into Y&R, some PVR and record the show, so they can watch it the minute they get home from work or other responsibilities, just so they can tune in and not miss an episode, Fans spend so much of their time writing and interacting with other fans, but I am grateful for that because I met so many incredible and beautiful people who share the same interest as I do, but CBS and The Young and The Restless owe us a lot. and we deserve happiness too, and our voice should be putting up the volume on the show. Letting go of key characters whom have been the reason for the ratings to skyrocket for the past 25 years is not right at all. This is not a joke to fans, some fans have dedicated their lives to this show. Some people a lot of money to go see their favorite actors and actresses at conferences, events, breakfast, lunch or dinner gatherings, at shows and so much more. Fans even spent their week with them on a Cruise Ship too.

The executives need to think twice about what they do to the show and to their fans. I really hope they make wise decisions or else they can lose a lot of viewership. Fans can be doing other things with their busy schedules and responsibilities but no, they choose to watch Soaps. They better think long and hard. That is all for now.
