Time and time again we have to remind ourselves that Latinos in social media exist! A few weeks ago Al Dia relaunched the Latino Professional Network (LPN) which to me is probably the smartest thing in Philly to be produced. The LPN is a group of professionals looking to meet (and not hide) and share their success stories. It was difficult for me coming to Philadelphia and not knowing where to go. Although LPN was created three years ago, I'm glad they are getting the Latino voice out there.
According to a recent Al Dia article, "El sitio de internet de LPN es una página estilo Facebook, que muestra un perfil con información profesional, experiencia laboral, fotografías de eventos sociales en la comunidad latina, calendario de eventos sociales y comunitarios, bolsa de trabajo, “chat” y además se puede sincronizar con las cuentas ya existentes de Facebook y Twitter."
If you're interested in meeting other Latino professionals visit lpnetwork.net or come to their next event on Wednesday, December 9th at 5:30 p.m. at the Loews Hotel in the Solstice Room (inside Sole Food restaurant).
