I heard of it before, I think I got a few invites from people.  I believe it's one of those "we'll spam you address book on your behalf" type situations.

6 days on the site and I just picked up my first seller about an hour ago from a local small business. I also found a cheaper option for my signage too.

Of course, I have been spammed a dozen times as well but they get deleted so I can live with that. My goal is 2 clients from every site I use this year. So far this one is paying dividends for me with very low effort and I am connecting with other local biz owners in a way that has not happened on LinkedIn.

I will continue to zig while others are zagging. ;-)

They send out emails where they say a contact of yours wants to connect/exchange referrals. Makes them seem like everyone's using them. Truth is the people they claim are looking to connect aren't even members. Sketchy and not free either!

Pain in the butt if you ask me. It's a local business-to-business social network to connect with people that have an interest in you or your business. Tried it and then, I would get 100 emails per day from people trying to sell me their crap. I deleted my account, but nooooooo, it just continued..... on and on...

Hmm.. interesting framework, looks like they started just after 2012. In January of 2017 their organic took off but with 19609 business pages from wedding planners to a surf shop and everything in between. Organically they are not ranking for anything substantial, looks like members are in the site recommending one another. Interesting
