Many people are using social media in various ways.  Kim Kerr is finding a way to not only benefit her personal image and brand online, but also to help others.  Kim realizes that although the internet allows us to interact with people all over the world – we still have our closes relationships with the people that are geographically close to us.  And at time we need help to build these relationships.  To that end Kim has created Linked Alberta.
