I just joined Linkedin.

I know! It’s like 2007!

I joined because a colleague kept telling me that he was trying to reach 500 connections, at which point your profile just says ‘500+ connections’. That could mean a million, but more likely means 501.

So I thought I’d see how easy/difficult that is.

Before then I’d always pooh-poohed LI because if I thought of it at all, I thought it was the businessman’s networking site.

It could still be that, but I seem to have found a lot of non-businessman friends on it.

So what now?

Do you use it a lot? How do you do so? Is it helpful to you? Or is it just a load of old crap?

Please let me know…
