In June of 2010 I finally “got it” with regard to Linkedin. I joined this community a couple of years ago, but never really saw the need to expand my network or to interact with the other members.  Through some very active recruitment efforts I have added (in three months) a total of 171 connections, which link me to a potential total of 1,875,878 other people!
