A useful platform to stay in touch and make new acquaintances with people of your professional area.
I use this media for finding new employee, and opportunity for new business and partners, but its need to coup up with the trends.
I never accessed any part of the service and canceled by the deadline. The deadline in the notification is not the real deadline. They said "cancel by Dec 8th" and I did, but they charged me hundreds of dollars anyway because I didn't cancel before the "billing deadline." To my knowledge, they never told me when the billing deadline was. If they had, I would have met it. Your only safe bet is to NEVER SIGN UP AT ALL.
Tip for consumers: NEVER EVER SIGN UP
When ever i need to hire someone, guess where i search first, yes you got that right, at linkedin.
I am am long-term, premium plan user with an all star profile. I pay for advertising and job postings. I can't believe LinkedIn is taking away premium filters. Premium filters and unlimited search results are the only reason I pay for a premium account. I used sales navigator and it sucks. It's not worth the money I could be paying for RainKing or DemandDB. Now I have to re-think whether premium is worth the money. Whomever made this decision mad a bade one.
A good thing to use for finding new jobs and acquaintances for professional growth. Also helps to stay in touch with your former colleagues.
This network is very useful. I think it is the great place to find job you are looking for.
I have a Premium LinkedIn account for my staffing agency, and my business relies on LinkedIn. Currently, there is a technical issue on the website, and I am not able to view candidate profiles after doing a person search. I reported the issue 2 days ago on their website, and I have received poorly written responses (not to mention there's no phone support). The issue is still unresolved. For a subscription service, I would expect at least same-day phone support.
Linked-in site is just a waste of time. Zero scope and fake profiles. Site is good for nothing...
LinkedIn has 600,000+++members from all over the world. It is the best website to join whether you want to network for leads or looking for a job.
You end up connecting with some great people.
Obviously this site is very professional. It is a networking and quasi-social site revolving around your professional persona. The only reason it gets 4 stars instead of 5 for me is that I don't know that it actually does anything for me.
Sure, I can network to my heart's content - but I'm not finding job listings there. Sure, I can read lots of industry related articles but I can read those at a number of sites. Sure, employers can read my profile information and send me messages if it fits their bill but they can do that at most job sites.
It's a very solid site with a pretty sleek and easy-to-use interface. I would bump this to a 5 if the actual job listing functions were a bit more robust.
REASONS TO USE
 Interface is simple and easy to use
 Professional substitute/equivalent to facebook - you can avoid all the facebook drama
 It can, potentially, teach you a lot about your own personal, professional persona
REASONS TO LOSE
 Not a very robust job search utility
 Pesters you to add more to your profile even if it's finished and requests to get into your email to find contacts to add (repeatedly)
I love LinkedIn. It is a great tool with connecting with other people in the same industry as me throughout the world.
For those who are tired or too mature for Facebook, this belongs to you
I have a lot to say about this website but I will keep it short.
This website lack interacting and communication with others. Looking for a Job hope you have a Outstanding resume and profile, cause you ain't getting one with out it. By the way, if your a blue collar worker, don't even waste your time signing up if you don't have a college degree. Yes you will connect with others but finding a job on there is stupid low. LinkedIn is a easy way for your employer to see what your doing. I have more to say but ill stop here..
