Conan O’Brien recently talked about his digital presence on one of his shows. He pointed out that the good news was that he had around 9 million followers on Twitter, almost 4 million Google+ followers, over 2 million likes on Facebook, and almost 1 million subscribers on YouTube.
However, “there’s one vital piece missing from the Conan social media empire. Ladies and gentlemen, I have zero followers on LinkedIn. Zero. Well guess what. That’s about to change!” Conan made it his goal to conquer LinkedIn. “Here’s the problem. I don’t know what LinkedIn is.” He created a LinkedIn profile and it has gone viral:
On his profile, you will notice that he spent 12 years as a Lighting Designer for Applebees International. He also lists 120/80 as his blood pressure for the “Test Scores” section. His skills and expertise listed are “talking,” “pretending to listen,” “Microsoft Excel,” and “blaming my father.”
