Learn what other professionals are up to with the timeline. Like other social networking services, Silo has a timeline feed. This is your daily stop to see what's new, what opportunities are available, and what roles you might be able to fill.
Public and private communities. Silo has a wealth of communities for you to join to connect with like-minded professionals. Some are public, while others are moderated and private.
What is it about?
When you first sign up with Silo, you'll be "vetted." This is to keep the spammers and scammers out, and keep the professionals in. If you register using Facebook or LinkedIn, the registration algorithm will look at your profile, see if you have any contacts already on Silo, and decide whether or not to immediately grant you access to the app.
Why we love it
You could spend hours searching for individual people to add as contacts, but that's both time-consuming and tedious. It's also unnecessary. Silo provides its users with a wealth of communities to join and interact with. There are communities for many major career paths, from app development to marketing to writing and blogging. There's plenty in between, of course. Just tap on the communities button, and browse through the options. Many of the communities are public, meaning anybody on Silo can just join immediately. There are also closed groups, though, which make it easier to keep a community focused on a particular topic. These closed communities will allow you to apply for membership in them. Once you do that, the communities' admins will evaluate your submission and see if you're a good fit. It's just like closed groups on Facebook, and it's another step to making sure your experience is as positive and spam-free as possible. I really appreciate Silo's efforts to keep the "riffraff" out of the site. One of the biggest hurdles with networking through Facebook is separated the valuable connections with the fake accounts and spammers. You don't have to worry about that with Silo. Through this app, you're able to make great connections to others in your industry. By forging these networks, you're increasing your value in the industry. Who knows, you might even land a position at Google or Apple as a result of your networking on Silo.
