[CS-FSLUG] OT: Anyone Use Linked-In?

Incidentally, I'm not sure what to make of Linked-in so far. It seems  
kind of nifty in visually seeing one's connections, but I'll have to  
play with it some more to see if it is really useful.

I got started on my Linked-in account and Orkut account from invites  
by Gael Duval, but found I never went back to either much after I  
signed up, because for the most part, none of my contacts use them,  
and even if they do, (particularly in the case of Linked-in) it  
really doesn't foster extra communication. Maybe I'm missing something.

After playing with the different social networking sites, I think the  
only one I've found very useful is Facebook. It's system seems to be  
laid out well for fostering electronic communication of those who are  
connected through non-electronic organizations... Companies like  
Apple have networks on it, so I think they are essentially using it  
as Linked-in is suppose to be used.

Who knows, perhaps I'll find Linked-in more useful if I try to  
utilize it more; I wonder, though, if Facebook might provide some  
competition now that it has open registration?
