I think it's horses for courses.

This philosophy is fine for explicitly business-focused networks like LinkedIn, and is in fact the approach I adopt there.

Quite the opposite approach works better in, for example, twitter where I have benefitted from random links and from following up snatches of conversation 'overheared' in the stream of messages. Staying with twitter, I think of it as one big virtual party, or networking event if you prefer, where one of the points of being there is to meet new people.

Yes, good points Owen. I am speaking more from the business side of social networking. I agree that Twitter and others work well in the way you describe. Thanks for bringing this up.
