One aspect of a PWP that sets it apart from LinkedIn and I find appealing is that PWP's can really be anything you want them to be. An individual can create a personal web preference for fun, work, or as a marketing tool. This creative component is not evident with LinkedIn. LinkedIn is great, but its purpose seems to be much more specific and geared toward networking and an individuals business profile. With PWP's the sky is the limit in terms of creativity. Anyone that knows how to use the internet can create a PWP and benefit from it, whereas with a LinkedIn account, people that are more interested in developing their professional networks may find more value there. Both professional portfolios are great resources, but depending on where you are at in your life and what you want to accomplish, it may make more sense for you to invest in either a PWP or LinkedIn. For people that find value in both, there is no reason why I wouldn't suggest going that route either.
