LinkedIn is not Facebook so Please Think Twice About Your Updates

logo-linkedinTo those that are beginning to utilize LinkedIn like Facebook, my apologies in advance, but I’ve been removing you from my network list.

To me, LinkedIn is a professional network / contact management arena and if you are using it to supply graphics of “what word do you see first” or “enter your email in the comment box and your direct contact list will grow by 100x”, well … you’ve lost the plot on the importance of what a business network is all about.

Harsh?

Perhaps.

But it’s also what I might refer to as a ‘digital discipline’ strategy of mine.

Evidence below.

PS. If you’re going to post a graphic (or get sucked into the idiotic hope of a larger email network by playing along) you might want to try a function known as ‘spell check’.
