    I joined a few months ago (it is free) and have been building my "on line network" since. I sent invites to people I know and they decide to join or not. What I like about is that if you do a search for say jobs, research on a company, anything, you have to go through a "contact". So if somebody is three degrees from me, it tells me who in my network I can reach that person through. I send them a request, they forward and then that person may or may not have to forward it and then it gets to the person I want to contact. They then decide if they want to complete the contact or not. I have actually re-connected with old business associated that I had lost track of this way. It is really kinda cool.
