LinkedIn CEO Boasts of the Career Social Network's Growth

Has Your Life Benefited From Social Networking?

Even amid a recession and layoffs across several industries, the CEO of career social network LinkedIn is boasting of the growth of the network. Though I belong to LinkedIn, as do all of my friends who also use Facebook and other major networks, I have not yet heard of anyone getting a job from their participation on the site, though that's the sole reason to belong for most.

I have heard of reconnections and career opportunities through Facebook and MySpace, however, which is not the only way a network can lift you up — who doesn't know someone who's made a romantic connection through Facebook? My social network participation has really only tangibly gotten me closer or better connected friendships, but nothing like a job or a partner. I'm curious — has your life benefited some way because of a social network?
