Does anyone bother with linkedIn anymore? I find myself debating every six months or so if I can just go ahead and get rid of it. I never use it; once a year I'll update it out of guilt but generally don't care enough to really keep up with it.
I've had a handful of situations where people have requested the link, or tried to contact me through it, but it seems just as easy to contact me through my portfolio site. I have never received a job offer through it, nor have I known anyone to really benefit from it.
Do you maintain one to keep up industry appearances or is it acceptable to remove myself from it once and for all?
