Are social business networks effective for finding employees or finding a job?

I see these sites like Friendster, Ryze, and LinkedIn, and I just wonder… what is it that these people are actually using the site for? I especially wonder at the idea of connecting people only through their connections. Kind of like a six-degrees of separation thing. Frankly, if a friend of a friend of a friend recommends someone to me… it doesn’t get them any better chance of being hired, because frankly, they are as much as stranger as any other person out there. It does however, bring them to my attention. Though I don’t think this is the best way to do so.

It comes down to three things when I’m looking at a potential employee:

Attitude
Ability to learn
Ability to achieve.

That’s it. These social networking sites don’t help me determine any of these attributes, so therefore, they are not the best way to meet potential employees. What I need, is a list of developers who are interested in building mobile technology, with a focus on S 60 phones, and Bluetooth. And I don't want to pay for the list, nor do i want to pay just to make contact. Show me that list, and I don’t care how many degrees of separation they are from me; I’ll make it one degree in about 30 seconds.

Disaster is likely to wreak havoc in the life of an individual as soon as he becomes victim to erectile dysfunction and the most significant dreadful consequence of erectile dysfunction is that the afflicted man becomes incapable of facilitating erections required for sexual intercourse. The sexual vacuum resulted from erectile dysfunction prompts the sufferer to opt for anti-impotency pills, most especially the viagra medication that was approved by FDA (Food and Drugs Administration) as a clinically effective drug to cure erectile dysfunction in men. Viagra is meant to be administered by patients only after availing of viagra prescription from the doctor. The prescription for Viagra provided by the doctor spells out that the patient suffering from erectile dysfunction seriously need Viagra to treat his disorder and further authorizes the patient to avail of Viagra from the pharmacist.
