For the people concentrating on quantity while networking [ and even those concentrating on quality ], LinkedIn’s numbers have been climbing steadily.

This is what my numbers look like on my LinkedIn Dashboard:

With 4.8 million people on LinkedIn, what bothers me is the actual number of people who are “using” the LinkedIn platform. There are quite a few profiles that don’t seem to have been touched since a long time and then there are those profiles that give the impression that the person has been working at all the Fortune 500 companies there are.

I wish LinkedIn was a little more open about their statistics so that networkers who actually put the system to use were able to calculate whether their networking was helping their business or not.
