No. I judge them based on their number of facebook friends duh.

Some of the posts recently lol.

I judge them based on whether or not they are friends with you.

if only i had more credits... (i'd give out silver... btw, i think it should be changed to candied bananas - nobody likes them silver - they're inedible)

What you fail to realize is each silver banana you receive is immediately exchange it for 3 "real" bananas (3 Banana Points reward for each Silver Banana) in our virtual marketplace. So nobody really holds onto the Silver Bananas, we just keep track of what users were awarded the most. Carry on.

No. I judge them based on whether they work(ed) at Griedly & Co.

LinkedIn connections are only one of several factors I use in judging someone:

16.8% - Facebook friend count
12.7% - LinkedIn connection count
28.5% - Facebook profile picture
20.4% - At what firm they work (on LinkedIn)
21.6% - What do they do there (also on LinkedIn)

My method is scientific, foolproof, and can be yours for 9 easy payments of $19.99.

patrick, any real monkey knows for sure that candied bananas are worth way more than silver bananas, for the reason stated above. in fact, many monkeys have been known to exchange their silver bananas for poo, mostly for texture-related reasons.

and i rank my friends based on the amount of poo they fling at users from a list i keep secret, to prevent corrupted statistical results.

I don't use LinkedIn and never will. It seems to me that LinkedIn never really gained much popularity in the IB/PE world. It's such a tight knit community that general social networking sites really won't bring much value to someone already in the industry -- other than 100 emails from people looking to get in.

but if you were to, say, interview two identical candidates, you'd naturally jump on the one with 5000 connections, right? unless they were all, like, from IT...

..... i'm enjoying this :)

Only if they clearly stated the number of LinkedIn connections they had on their resume.

You ever see the people on LinkedIn with like 1000 connections. Or the ones that say they will accept all invitations right on their profile. Always chuckle at that. Kind of miss the point of the site (which I have found extremely useful btw).

Yeah, "open networkers" make me laugh.
