I’ve been in there pretty much from the start (user number 1400 and something) but it always felt like a chore, something I “should” be doing rather than a pleasure. A combination of the design of the site and the people who tend to spend more time there than on the rest of the web.
In recent years I have re-posted my blog posts there in an attempt to stimulate conversations and drum up business but to little effect in either regard. I may lose out on the odd connection who relied on LinkedIn to keep up with my ideas and my activity but, to be honest, I am drifting away from that sort of work anyway.
It will still be useful as a big, self maintained, contact list but that’s it.

I also find the platform very siloed. Crossing job networks isn’t as handy. Seems only alumni relations use it to find me for donations
Yep. Little reason to hang around in there.
