If you are in any way interested in your professional development, have a look at these alternative reasons for using Linked In and see if any of them might work for you.

Many people are surprised to learn that according to research you’re most likely to get your next job from someone you’ve already met. You’re also most likely to get your next job lead from an acquaintance, not a friend. This information, and the accepted necessity of networking when job-hunting makes Linked In is a great way to get started if you are actively looking for a new post or position. I use Linked In a lot, including during recruiting and hiring, and I’ve noticed some things that are really minor, but can have a big impact on whether or not we hire someone or commission work from them. There are lots of different ways to use Linked In and these are just things I've noticed through my own use for work that make it much easier for me to access or contact a prospect.
