OK I tried it and guess what...

About 2 weeks ago I got an email from the guys over at
I've been a member of TL for a while so it was nothing new, they send out a weekly email with a link to the db with all the new "inductees" so you can send invites to them via linkedin.

Anyho, in the weekly update they mentioned that they started a new "" type database but now you can also grow your network on any (or all!) of the world's top 20 social networking sites including LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, Ecademy, Xing, Bebo, Blue Chip Expert, Ecademy, Fast Pitch, Friendster, hi5, Konnects,, Naymz, Orkut, Perfect Networker, Plaxo, Ryze, Tagged, and UNYK

Basically when you sign up you choose which networks you want the list from, they add you to that list and you can now access that list.

Knowing that I liked Toplinked I decided to pay for the membership which was like $49.95 and I sent a message to all my contacts on Linkedin, all 15,400 of them. OpenNetworker paid me for the referrals for people that signed up so my current balance is like $74.95. That's not a huge profit granted but I didn't do it as a money making scheme or venture I did it to add contacts to my networks.

So far since 3/11/09 (my sign up date) I've added the following to my networks;

Linkedin 589 new first level
Faccebook 120
Xing 4
Myspace 0

So my initial review it, well worth it. Technically it cost me nothing which is a lot less than I was paying for and it got me almost 800 new contacts in about 2-3 weeks. I'd say that's a pretty good deal. AND better yet I didn't send one invitation out I only accepted invites. Kinda hard to send them out when ya have none left and LI won't release more for another 60 days:-( Yes LI is still thwarting the efforts of OpenNetworkers around the world.

Anyway if you are interested follow the link below an take a minute to sign up I hope it works out for you as well it did for me.
