Plus it truly helps with connections. Especially when looking for someone to collaborate with.
Just the other day we managed to get a Skype conference with the founder of a company we are interested in collaborating with (can't disclose the name yet) using Linked-in. We came across their website, went on Linked-in to check if we know anyone who is a direct connection with them and it turns out we did! He introduced us and we got our meeting. And this wasn't the first time we used Linked-in to get our foot in the door.

Also feel to send both me and Alexandra connection requests. Just select Friend when asked "How do you know Liviu / Alexandra?" :)
Thank you guys!
