Linked in

I've always thought linked in was pretty stupid. Facebook for dorks I called it.  Unfortunately, for better or worse, it's a necessary business evil.  Probably a useless evil in all honesty, but nonetheless people deem it useful.  Now they have endorsements. So people can "endorse" your skills in your field. For example, if you are a lawyer you can get endorsed for "contract law, negotiation, subrogation, litigation" or if you're an architect your friends can endorse you for skills in which they have no authority to judge your skill level.  I am pretty sure it has the opposite effect.  To me, the more endorsements you have, the less credibility you have.  Keep that in mind.
