If you're a consultant, then probably yes. When I was a consultant 15 years ago I updated my monster account daily. I'm now full-time employee who is not looking for a job outside of my organization.

I actually opened a linkedin account some 10+ years ago and never really used it. I've added some skills, education, and old certs but that has been several years ago. In fact, I have hidden my profile from public view because I don't want people contacting me about any jobs. I'll contact them if I find an interesting ad.

I will admit, I do have a fake linkedin account I use to lookup old friends and coworkers.
