LinkedIn is a site where people post the jobs they've had and "connect" with current and former co-workers. There are also "groups" to join consisting of people with common interests or occupations, or even schools. Unlike sites such as Facebook or MySpace, the atmosphere appears to be very professional and lacking in drama of any sort.
