I agree with you both! But what I'm trying to say here is that Linkedin is aware of this "Gen Y" problem and they are slowly changing their positioning... They started as "Online CV platform" and now they are much more than that! They are trying to have people interacting each other in order to build their own job opportunities by speaking with CEO's directly, etc. Linkedin saw the power of the "Peer 2 Peer" platforms and they are changing it in a way they don't scare the "old school / conservative" users.. I think I will see in the future, platforms like this "Open IDEO" in Linkedin with their own brand name.. I think that, in the future, people they will not need to move to anywhere they will work in a co-work basis anywhere in the world and Linkedin could be using their own existing platform with millions of users and companies already signed up to leverage that... That's just one idea! :) I think that, in the short term, A JOB will not be an "open position" on a website or a desk in a company... It will be a real problem to be solved online.. And the first guy (or team) to solve it.. They will be paid.

Good idea. I like it, however I'm a bit worried about how the competition (Linkedin, Glassdoor, etc) will react about this. Linkedin is already trying to engage young people by making it more "social oriented" with likes, news feed and comments, etc. You can follow companies, check their opportunities, etc.
