LinkedIn endorsements rant!

WTF is this?
Over the last couple of weeks I have been endorsed by people I know and some I have never met. For skills I have and some that I do not.
But I draw the line when these endorsers start asking for endorsements in return!!
I don't do Facebook because of this garbage of liking and friending and whatever. Linkedin may have finally jumped the shark.
(my apologies if you have recently endorsed me. I was talking about all of the others, not you )

After about a year I decided it was nothing more than a place to showcase your resume online and was essentially worthless unless I was looking for a job. Lots of personal info to have up online too. I block anything LinkedIn now.

I don't really request to connect with people who aren't professionally related to me on LinkedIn, but if someone I know (like my cousin, or a colleague's husband) asks me to connect with them, I usually say yes. Most people in dentistry aren't sitting at a computer, sitting on linkedin, but I was happy to see today that a couple of my old professors are now on there.
