Through discovering exactly what a personal website is and can be I think there are some differences to using this as opposed to using LinkedIn as a professional portfolio. I think there are pros to both types of portfolios which include aspects such as displaying both personal and professional information, resume access, contact information, and networking capabilities. The cons to LinkedIn that I can see is that it is less customizable when one may want to add a personal touch, there is less capability to link other social media sites to it, and there isn’t an option for the blogger. Cons to using a personal website is that LinkedIn already has a vast networking system set in place where more exposure may be an option, and it can be more user friendly to some individuals who are already comfortable in the use of the network. I do not think that there are any drastic differences that should deter one from the use of either of these and I think that it comes down to personal preference. I have really adapted and become fond of the use of a personal website and like the fact that my LinkedIn is connected here as well.
