Job Referrals!

Of the people that had given me referrals and recommendations, Acquaintances worked better for me than friends, lol. Acquaintances include some coworkers that I wasn't the closest with. But I have been seeing that these day everyone refers everyone! Don't know if it is because they have a monetary benefit or it is the new gen. generosity. Literally on this app called Blind, theres so many people asking and giving referrals. And LinkedIn has become a more 'social' platform to reach out to strangers. There was this other service called refr,me that was just a referrals platform, looks like they shut down.

What are your thoughts on this age job referrals? and where do you go when you need referrals?
