Looking for other perspectives / vantage points :

I've recently read a few blog pieces downplaying and dismissing LinkedIn "endorsements". The go so far as to mention that recruiters don't take them seriously and "just get 15 friends to click a few skills and you look like an expert."

While I take the above with a grain of salt, I was wondering what other member's impressions are of LinkedIn "endorsements"?

As a social media consultant, I find them valuable because "visual connections" are huge in general. Beyond that, i've seen an increase in not only connections, but also in "initial stage" consulting relationships.

What's your take on LinkedIn endorsements and have they helped you / your business?
