    Linked-In is not really "social" media -- it is business networking mediaand far more effective for B2B consultants. It’s other value is for jobseekers -- exec recruiters and HR staffers are having a field day with it.
    I've picked up new clients cold on Linked-In - they've found & come to me and its also good reinforcement of what you do for clients and your referral base in your network.
