    Very nice and informative post. Never heard of this feature in linkedin before. Thanx for sharing. I think, this may also be because out of all the social networking sites, sites like facebook, twitter, orkut etc are used to the maximum extent for promotion purposes by bloggers like us and we sometime don’t pay much attention to sites likes linkedin.
