I use it to find and engage like minds in conversation, track down good linking potential, and basically keep an eye on my neighbors (that didn’t sound right at all). Try it. It rocks. Just make sure you have some free time – I can easily spend 20 minutes moving the little discs around…

I use Quantcast to check up on the claims that publishers make regarding their site traffic and demographics. It’s a nice gut-check when buying advertising.
