    The reason I use it is because people don't LIVE on it. I use it when I need to and for that reason I am a fully engaged customer. As soon as I start seeing cereal posters etc I will stop using it.

     

    Linkedin trying to be like the others is like Coach deciding to sell at wal-mart to compete low quality/price substitutes...it's not what makes them successful. Just look at LNKD vs. FB who should be emulating who?
