I’m with Scoble on social networks

Scoble posts that he hates social networks like LinkedIn, Friendster, and Orkut.

Why? Cause I have a blog. My email address and my cell phone number are always on my blog.

Why do I need a social network? I hate LinkedIn, for instance. I get emails sent to me through five people. If you don’t know how to look me up on Google/MSN/Yahoo and email me directly why, exactly, would I answer your emails there?

Couldn’t agree more. Most LinkedIn requests come from people who are having a tough time finding work. Gee, I wonder why if they are relying on things like LinkedIn.

And crazier yet are companies who encourage their employees to join LinkedIn. Just makes it easy for other companies and headhunters to find and evaluate your employees as potential hires.
