Have almost been getting myself off Ryze. Its becoming sort of useless. There are just too many people of the kind “Dropped in just to say a Hi” – wonder why people drop in just to say Hi?? They won’t even look at your profile and add you to the friends’ list. Half the time goes in doing away with unscrupulous friends’ list request. The real “Networking” part is gone. One would fail to remember what their friends are like, what they do etc. If you really need to network with some specific purpose, you will have to do the raw search anyway, what is the point of having a friends’ list.
