Got linked in!

Recently I joined LinkedIn via an invitation. I am already in Orkut. But how useful are these on an ongoing basis?

Two days back I got an invite from a colleague to join LinkedIn. I promptly went ahead and joined. I was thrilled to see the site listing out my colleagues and ex-colleagues based on my profile. So, I too sent out invites to those whom I know and got several connections back.

However, I am not at all sure if this is useful after some time.

There is no other on-going activity other than people discovering you and you discovering people. If folks are like me, (who has logged in to Orkut, perhaps 4 times since 2005!), this will not constitute great many activity.

Nevertheless, I am still excited in getting connections back from people I thought long-lost acquaintances.

If interested, here is my LinkedIn profile
