All "social networking" is evil, and yet it is part of what makes the 
internet so great.

Snagging and re-routing my mail.... Ain't gonna happen. I'm not installing 
Intro on a device that I use for other things.

But I work LinkedIn as much as it works me, in certain circles it is THE 
tool. I've had some of the the most important meetings in the last 5 years
thanks to LinkedIn.

Like all tools, even FaceCrack.. it depends on how you use it.

His points are all valid. And if I was a recruiter, job-seeker, biz-dev 
specialist (in certain markets at least), I'd buy a device, setup certain 
accounts up to use it, and make it work for me as well as for them.

Decide if you are a sheep or a wolf, and act and equip yourself
