LinkedIn and Plaxo
Looking over both LinkedIn and Plaxo, I personally preferred LinkedIn.
On Plaxo, it provides the entire address book for contacts and you have to eliminate those you do not want versus LinkedIn where you select from your address book.
LinkedIn has a number of other applications you can utilize for work related activities and job hunting. It also includes a poll, slideshare, travel link, google presentation, and others that are linked to your profile so they become more easily accessible.
Neither site gave clear instructions for first time users. It was a lot of trial and error to complete tasks, especially when you are not familiar with these types of sites.
