Just got a linked in account, a couple of days ago, it's a course requirement, but it also seems like maybe it's time, or not. It's interesting anyway, while simultaneously boring.
What confuses me is the fairly steady stream of people wanting to link up with me, how do they know I have an account? When I set mine up I was asked to send link requests to any number of people (over 350!!!) - I sent out less than a seventh of that - but folks keep finding me! And they are people I know. Are they cruising their linked in account to go through their phone books? Does Linked in send them a notification? (this is my suspicion)
It is faintly creepy, I mean, there is a lot of personal information about yourself up there, seems, well, unwise.
