What’s the point of LinkedIn?

I get these requests pretty regularly and admittedly I do send out requests when LinkedIn shows me someone I know but I’m still trying to figure out what LinkedIn is actually good for…

I’m not hiring, nor am I looking for a job.  I don’t really follow all the posts people put up because most of the notifications are for people and their new contacts – that I don’t really care about.

Anyone give me any feedback on what LinkedIn is good for or how I should be using it?  Either way, feel free to add me!
