the most valuable aspect of it is being able to predict when people are going to leave your company because they become very active in updating their profiles
also seeing how much your co workers bullshit in their experience is quite amusing
In a roundabout way, I found my current job through LinkedIn. A consultant I used to work with saw a posting on her college LinkedIn group, thought it was something I'd be interested in, and forwarded the info along. Not having gone to that college, it's likely I wouldn't have ever come across the posting on my own.
