Why choose The Swarm over LinkedIn or LinkedIn Recruiter?

LinkedIn is a great place to build a network and can help you find profiles for outbound recruiting. However, it isn't built to manage a joint company network. Here are three reasons to switch to The Swarm:

- LinkedIn doesn’t allow an aggregated view of multiple people’s connections. If you try to look for your connections’ connections, you’ll see only 10-20% of connections vs. 100% on The Swarm!
We’ve added more import sources such as Google Contacts, so you’ll be able to find many more profiles beyond LinkedIn connections. Plus, not everyone is active on LinkedIn. Some of the best people and technical talent aren't.
- Our upcoming “Work overlap” feature will change the game by also letting you add people you overlapped with at previous jobs but aren’t necessarily connected to on LinkedIn.

- The Swarm gives you the personal email address and more social media links for the majority of profiles on your Network Graph, not LinkedIn.
- We’re also working on adding more actionable data including a strength of relationship score and more.

- On LinkedIn, you can’t save profiles in Pipelines, and track progress, nor collaborate as a team on your LinkedIn searches.
- LinkedIn is primarily built for social content and advertising, not for network relationship management at the team or company level.
