I don't know about SO, but:


Hiring Managers May Find You Online Without Help


That is certainly true. A couple days after CP announced the 2016 MVP's, I got a call from a hiring manager. I asked him how he heard about me and he said looks at the CP MVP's. I didn't take the job (it was too far away, and we had just bought a house), but I would have definitely received an offer.

I remember a client once, several years ago, hiring a summer college intern. The intern asked who else was working on the project, to which, when told, the intern responded, "What? THE Marc Clifton???" That was a fun story to hear.
