LinkedIn Expert

A LinkedIn expert is someone that has a reputation for being a source of knowledge about LinkedIn, above and beyond the general workings of the site.  They are active on LinkedIn daily, and have a complete and up-to-date profile with all sections filled in thoroughly.  A LinkedIn expert may or may not have written a book about it, but they do have a blog, website, webinar, ebook, or podcast where they share LinkedIn information and updates.  In addition to having an extensive number of endorsements and recommendations, they belong to numerous groups and follow many companies.  Their network is large, as they are established as the go-to person for anything related to LinkedIn.
