linkedin, indeed and monster are "not helping anyone but themselves". really? that's really how you are pitching (internally or externally)? that's how you view linkedin? only helping themselves? There's many criticisms you can level at LI, indeed and others, but they do help many people beyond themselves. This shows an incredible naïveté about the business world, imo, or maybe just an incredible "rah rah - let's just keep repeating stuff" mindset.
