The problem with LinkedIn

I used to admire LinkedIn. It served a purpose, had a solid business model and meant recruiters could easily find me and contact me. LinkedIn had the amazing advantage of doing three things that could seemed contradictory at first glance but worked in its unique ecosystem:
Provide me with a convenient place to host my resumeAllow me to contact recruiters and peersDo so without being an addictive platform like Facebook or Twitter (my personal opinion)
Basically, the sweet thing about LinkedIn is that you could just create your profile and only log in when absolutely necessary such as when you changed jobs or earned a new qualification. LinkedIn had a definite purpose and everybody was using it the way it was meant to be utilized: as a platform to connect recruiters and prospective candidates and to allow professionals to grow their networks and showcase their skills.

Welcome to the Mauritius Information blog!

Although this Mauritius Information blog is brand new, its objective is to become the number one blog for information about Mauritius. While browsing around on the net, I have noticed that while there are tons of websites and blogs offering some news about Mauritius, there is not actually a single place where someone can find all the information he needs about Mauritius.

Naysayers will probably point me to the Orange website, but the thing remains that is more a directory than an informative website. It also seems that whoever is in charge of updating that website does not even give a damn about getting back to those who are actually taking the trouble of submitting relevant information through their submission form. Having twice submitted a couple of great websites to their directory more than one year ago which were never added to their Directory section, I don't think they're a reliable place for news.

While this blog is pretty barebones right now, an RSS feed, a Twitter account, and a Facebook page will be added later and you will be able to use these to be automatically notified of new posts. And although this is ultimately a blog, I do plan to include posts about the best Mauritius websites you can check such as Mauritius newspapers, Mauritius accommodation websites (third parties mainly), and any other websites that are worth checking out. However, human psyche being unpredictable, I may blog about other issues totally irrelevant to Mauritius from time to time.

Feedback, recommendations, and article suggestions are always welcome.
