Re: Job search is among the top 10
Looking into the Cloud Adoption & Risk Report, LinkedIn ranked as the 5th most popular consumer app in the worplace. (1. FB 2. twitter 3.apple icloud 4. twitter 5. linkedin and 6. dropbox). It doesn't rank in the top 20 b/c this list is based on rising popularity QoverQ. I doubt linkedin will ever leave the top 5!

More social?
Has anyone used Scribd or Slideshare? Social networks are dime a dozen these days, I'm surprised these two are building a niche reputation in the FinServe space. Especially because Rajiv says their T&S do not specify a retention policy - this is wildly disturbing given its popularity, and these things tend to snowball as one user recommends it to another.

Job search is among the top 10
Since we've been talking about trust and commitment between employers, recruiters and job applicants, it's interesting that one of the top rated cloud apps used on Wall Street is CareerBuilder. The usage increase was up over 101% and this has a medium risk level. Does this suggest that job applicants are using the could app while they are at work? If so, is this a sign of not caring and lack of commitment?
