Social networking has come quite a long way. From the basic function of helping stay in touch with old classmates and far-flung family, social networking websites have now grown into ready resources for skilled professionals advertising their experience, interests and skills.

HR professionals and companies aren't shying away either. Indian companies are increasingly looking to sites like LinkedIn and Ryze to find candidates who know what they are looking for and are not afraid to ask. infact, LinkedIn has 14 million users and has over 200,000 recruiters registered.

Noting this growing trend, we are asking you dear reader whether you have ever used a social networking website to find a job or gain an interview call?

Has your online profile piqued recruiters' interests enough to invite a job interview?

Do you know anyone who has landed their dream job thanks to social networking? Or does your company regularly trawl these websites looking for eligible candidates?

Tell us about your experiences on the messageboard below!
