Just curious if anybody else here uses www.LinkedIn.com for their networking....
Nobody? You oughta check it out... it is pretty cool for managing your business contacts online and it is a neat way to "network".
never heard of it to tell the truth
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.

Yep Linked in is sketchy and fraudulent.
I never trusted it.
What made you say that? Do you think FaceBook is less sketchy?
It's a communist plot.
