Is LinkedIn Creepy?

LinkedIn recently introduced a new feature that ranks your profile by views among your connections. So now you can see “Who’s viewed your profile” and how often you get checked out relative to your peers on the site.

While it may be useful to know about potential job suitors, do you feel too embarrassed to browse other people’s professional profiles because of the transparency? I find myself cringing at every email from LinkedIn these days, from new connections (or stalkers) to spam business proposals. Is LinkedIn inherently creepy?
