Yes I have, but not often enough.... Sometimes with exceptional results!

Mixed results here. I gained my current position by answering a recruiter's job discussion in a LinkedIn group. When it was time to hire my #2, I posted job discussions in several LinkedIn groups but did not find any serious applicants.

As to hiring people: I am right now looking for a specialized logistics person using LInkedIn, and have had some serious resumes sent my way. I'm happy with the quantity sent, quality is a mixed bag and we will be interviewing this week.

My clients are routinely contacted by recruiters through Linkedin and quite a few have been hired for those positions.
