Linked in is a great networking site.  It specializes in professional networking.  I have found many opportunities through my links.  I also really appreciate the great feedback that people I used to work with or for leave.  This let's me know that I did my job.  You can check out my profile here.  If you haven't used LinkedIn check it out and start networking.  What else do you have to do? :)

I find myself using it more and more just to check people out that I am working with. I figure the same must be true with people working with me.

Do you find people try to link to you that you do not even know? Maybe I am a linked-in snob but I don't get it.

I agree. It's good from both perspectives. It gives you a lot of information on people you may work with. A good example would be if your getting ready to go to work for a company, you can find employees that work there and talk to them about life at that company. Get information that you don't get in interviews. Another good use is to meet people with similar interests to start talking with and sharing ideas. Out of all the social networking sites I find LinkedIn the best for my career, and career exploration.
