I tried to post content in LinkedIn, and I got the impression that it's a complete waste of time. Now I'm no fan of social media in general, but LinkedIn seems especially pointless for most people. Apart from the basic functionality that you can search someone's profile and see quickly what he has done in the past, LinkedIn is mostly noise as far as I'm concerned.

What content to post?
Nothing deep or personal.
If I were more cynical, I would make a list of "positive inspirational quotes" and have that bullshit automatically posted with one line of text, ten hashtags and call to actions "please share my post to your network if the sun is hot and the sky is blue".
