    "After viewing the site and what it does offer. I don't doubt that it may help you're company thru Facebook or twitter and other social media outlets. I don't really see how it would help a user with their LinkedIn profile. Most companies and people don't use LinkedIn to post images or videos or try to drive traffic thru it to their sites. While this is helpful in other social media outlets it really isn't helpful to those that wish to get more out of LinkedIn."
