This specific site is supposedly a site to network better across the board and not a per se a social site. It does help to keep in touch with old and new associates from work experience plus give you a way to get in touch with leaders in the fields beyond your normal area. As stated in the article, it is not a place to have interpersonal conversations other than business related. I actually was able to keep in touch with long-lost relatives who use this site and able to encourage their developing enterprises with references. But I don’t do social on this site.
