Good question.

David Pogue doesn’t see the point of LinkedIn:

What I don’t understand is: If somebody knows me well enough to e-mail me with an invitation to join, why doesn’t he just e-mail me directly with whatever his problem or offer is?

I use LinkedIn as a kind of address book, keeping me updated with the goings on of people I know and have worked with.But beyond that, I just don’t see the point.
