It's the Twitter vs. Facebook vs. Google smackdown taking shape, with LinkedIn still sitting on the sidelines with a face that says "Can I play, too?"
Querycasting ~ broadcasting/transmission of queries to/amongst select (qualfied, willing, able) "friends".
Issues: Verification of qualifications? Revelation of qualifications by consent or behind the scenes? Access to qualfication data for selecting "friends" or "set to qualifications" and then ask/invite permission to send/respond? (Still haven't found the old thread where I hypothesized about such a system several years ago. Help?)
Odd. I don't remember LinkedIn opening up their membership to such queries . . yet as an organization of professionals it might work at LinkedIn IF the right controls were put in place.
P.S. Oooo . . creeping self out. Thanks to WebmasterWorld's nifty new search utility I found the old (2007) thread was entitled "The Death of Facebook - Social Networking on the Fly" [webmasterworld.com...]
