Many people do business on a daily basis with people they've never actually met person to person. I see it having a merit there alright. I might end up working for myself at some juncture in the future and for me you could never beat actually meeting someone if you're selling physical goods and services. I really don't see the benefit of it as far as sales are concerned.

How did business survive before it came along??
Did Bill Gates and Alan Sugar have it and keep it a big secret all these years?? Or did they walk outside their homes/offices and actually meet people eye to eye?

It does have a use. In large companies and with outsourcing, shared services and all that caper you often have contacts with people all over the world. Hundreds of people in disparate physical locations can be working on the same product or project. So it has a purpose.

It seems to be virtual networking, but and I think its a big but. Isn't networking a kind of favour building relationship could that work in the virtual.

Its not reinventing the wheel Super, its just another tool to help professionals network. I dealt with people on 4 continents on a daily basis in my last job so it was pretty unlikely I would ever meet them face to face.

I have it, not done much with it, only connected to people in same profession or worked with, probaly good for looking for a new job as I have got job offers from it, but not getting any new clients from it

So you used the website for that? That would make sense if you didnt have some sort of intranet link thing I suppose.

Not with suppliers no and colleagues in different countries had intranets that only they could access, my former did have 120,000 employees worldwide afterall. But according to your logic I didnt need to use the company intranet to interact with colleagues.

There was no logic, just questions.
You answered them and I appreciate the input

Do people use linkedin? how do you use it? I applied for a job recently and someone who works in more or less the same job added me - I'm not sure if it's a coincidence - I don't use linkedin that much. Should I contact her? I am half expecting to be called for interview for the job.

I have a linkedin and use it sparingly, mostly to publicise blogs. I have received job offers through it and am invited to join people in my field from all over the world. It isn't something I would miss if it were gone, actually I need to update my profile there.

Yeah I got an account.
I rarely log in, but they have some really nifty function for updating your profile painlessly. It's a good idea and very well run.

LinkedIN is for business networking. It's very useful for making business contacts, joining commercial groups, job hunting. If you are middle management and up you really should have a LinkedIN profile as employers will look you up.

Your profile on LinkedIN is basically an up to date resume..
