I've recently signed up to LinkedIn and have been updating my profile:

I've been working on getting connections and recommendations. LinkedIn is aimed at social networking between business professionals. 

Has anyone else used LinkedIn and more importantly have they got business through it? Does it mainly cater for certain industries (tech I expect) or is there a wider appeal for the service?

Has anyone been recommended in their office to join the service?


I am in the Private Aviation field, Linkedin has worked great for me, though the Tech industry does seem to benefit more from this social networking site. I have had successful results.
