Re: Maybe it's just me, but...
*smiles* Yeah, it can feel like that's the best option sometimes :)
I don't care much for pictures, but the keyword tweaking was interesting. Of course, by offering this kind of help, more people start using those keywords, this weaking their power in searches. Kind of a circular thing really.
Either way, LinkedIn has developed a lot since it was first just an overgrown contact book, and the activity stream is kind of nice, along with seeing how your own posts are read and shared. I tend to use LinkedIn as a first port of call when I'm going to interview somebody for a job. It's also tremendously useful for keeping in touch with people after they change jobs.
Regarding Facebook, I guess if I maintained a "professional" Facebook profile, perhaps I might find work there, but I keep Facebook pretty much entirely personal; I have no work colleagues friended, for example.
