Do people interact and network across organizations?

Do people on LinkedIn interact and network? I asked people on LinkedIn and within a few days had nearly 3,000 views and over 60 comments. I ask because I was disappointed with a poll I ran on Twitter a few days ago about 4 traits of behavior from my earlier gig mindset research. Only 4 people responded.

BUT, one result was identical to my earlier research survey of 300 people: The lowest of the 4 behaviors I surveyed on Twitter was networking. When 4 people mirror 300 people, there must be some truth to it!  People on LinkedIn network. Right? Or is LinkedIn just a place where most people promote themselves without interacting and engaging in real conversation? Opinions vary and I got a lot of insights and perspectives from my LinkedIn post.
