I used to but, only a handful actually did anything with it. Some return on occasion and post something but, very rarely.

Are you talking about Active Rain? No, I do not. Then again, I don't have many interactions with new agents, in general. I also think this is the kind of platform where someone has to be self-motivated and really want to be participative. Way too many like the idea of it and sign up and then quickly disappear.

I have in the past but I haven't referred anyone to AR in 3 or 4 years and only casualy mentioned it to other agents 2 or 3 times in that time span. Mostly because I just haven't thought about it and it wasn't too sucessfull back when I was promoting AR quite a bit. Not many, if any folks I recommended are still active.

New agents?

Absolutely not!

Why? The agents participating on AR are winter agents and have a business based predominately on referrals. This has little relationship to new agents nor does the opportunity exist to provide ACTIONABLE guidance to a new real estate agent.

For a newbie, AR can prove to be a real time-hole. 

Now, when a newbie that has demonstrated they will make rain wherever they land, for these, AR can provide the opportunity to ask concise and intelligent questions and get a few answers that are not summed up with "I keep my eyes on my paper" or 'Raise the bar.'

I don't interact too much with new agents.  If I did, like Candice A. Donofrio said, I'd have to like them an awful lot especially since they'd be competing with me directly (and let's face it, most importantly they'd be challenging me for points).

Yes. Unfortunately most agents in our office use SOI and few if any bother with a website. It is mostly referall except those wanting a billboard next to a freeway billboard next to Redfin -1% listing fee billboards.
