Does Linkedin Really Connect People?

I am in need of a little bit of social – media education.  The question of the day is does Linkedin have real benefits for small business owners, like myself?  I have been spending a bit of time trying to add connections in order to learn from others, share information and generate a bit of business for SIGNING FAMILIES.

 So far, I have to say that my experience has been positive. The connections I have made seem to be genuine and helpful. But, I can’t seem to grasp the whole concept of Linkedin.  Do people actually secure employment via this site?  Are parents receiving great resources for their children here?  Do people actually use Linkedin to find like minded people without the goal of selling a product or service?  Educate me… please!

Comments below are greatly appreciated.  Let me know your own experiences- good, bad and ugly.  And, while we are on the topic of social-media, any thought about GOOGLE +?

Thanks for reading. Here is my Linkedin site:  http://www.linkedin.com/in/louisemasinsattler
