SkillPages seems to rely more on skills than professional network reach which LinkedIn started with.

The formality seems to be lower in SkillPages as well.

As the about page and video suggests, it's a site that is used to find people with a specific skill set which may not be possible in professional networking sites like LinkedIn that rely on more resume style information.

Example: I cannot find a drummer who also sings on LinkedIn

Linkedin.com supports the same functionality by providing "Skills and Expertise". Also linkedin.com supports the endorsing process. So this is not a fundamental difference, I mean. –  Piotr Semenov Dec 27 '12 at 16:47
@PiotrSemenov it's not a main feature. I cannot find a drummer who also sings on LinkedIn –  phwd Dec 27 '12 at 16:50
Now I see, thanks :) This seems to be a thing I wanted to catch. Please, update your answer with this clear example. –  Piotr Semenov Dec 27 '12 at 17:12
