    LinkedIn.com, Do You USE IT

    Hi,

    Are you a member of LinkedIn.com? If so do you use it?

    I've been a member for almost a year and its use seems to be waning. The group discussions receive less conversations and if you message people it generally takes longer to receive a reply.

    Well do you use the site or are you just a member?

    What I mean is it a site which millions of people have joined but dont use, such as replying to messages or taking part in group conversations.

    Also most people are only members of a few groups and the people I work with claim to months without logging onto the site.

    Used to have an account but I closed it. I guess it is a good thing if you are into public relations, but that's my weak point so... I never used it and I didn't see the point of having it.

    I use LinkedIn primarily to identify, capture, and snuggle my enemies to death through expressive shell scripts.

    I like having it to see who ex co-workers are now working with. Sometimes it's with people I know. Small world

    LinkedIn is a social networking web site. I like it because it helps me connect with Social Media Search Engine Optimization Specialists, who can explain to me which Buzzwords to pay attention to.

    With LinkedIn, I've decided to change all references to my academic background to only the phrase "his dark, shadowy history of crime".

    I canceled my LinkedIn account not too long ago. I just didn't find any good use for it. I have not signed on in LinkedIn for a while.
