LinkedIn Lies

LinkedIn is fantastically useful and a great tool—making it easy to stay connected to colleagues, clients, and associates is a killer app. But, geez, the folks who abuse it for shameless self-promotion. I think it'd help if personal profile descriptions were length-limited, so they don't resemble press releases, and if the groups app had filtering and ranking abilities, to eliminate the incessant astroturfing. It'd be great if those of us on the cluetrain could tune out the senseless souls who haven't yet boarded.
