Do any freelance coder sites use social proof (networks, not ratings) to find a good coder?

We don’t use your social graph to show you freelancers you’re connected to (in fact, I’m not sure that would provide much value), but we do understand the pain point of wading through all the spam and crap on oDesk and Elance.

We do however vet all of our talent at Solvate- only 20% of applicants get in to the Solvate Talent Network, and all Solvate Talent is US based.

We do rely heavily on LinkedIn profiles for our application process, and so in a way we do use social proof by looking for things like recommendations.
