LinkedIn is stupid, part 265

In our last chapter our hero discovered the unknown country of tags wherein he thought "Aha!  I don't need to click every single freaking connection to send a message to the same group.  I can just create a tag and use that in the future." In today's episode he learns how naive he truly was ...It was a sunny Texas winter day, the kiss of warmth on my forearms a promise of the luxurious heat to come in a few months.  I was excited to try out my sexy new LinkedIn tags.  I'd click a tag of 50…See More

"I didn't say it was practical or pretty, only that it solved your problem.  Another option is sending a generic invite and removing them if they accept.  With LinkedIn one must often choose among the least of evils....."

Marc Freedman replied to Vincent Wright's discussion DEAR LINKEDIN: RE: "People You May Know" in the group My Linkedin Power Forum
"Vincent - smart idea.  There is no setting related to that.  So the only way to remove someone is to indeed send an invite.  If you really don't want to know that person, you could tell them to ignore it in the invitation…"

"re: Just who owns your LinkedIn connections? - Irish Times Good to see some common sense court decision in the article.  Of course the correct answer to who owns your connections is not the company ... or you.  It's LinkedIn, which…"

"Well, if you knew Susie like I knew Susie ... Nah, first that I heard. Not that whiny pampered users or opportunistic attorneys make a regular practice of contacting ye old LinkDaddy.  It's just me in my little house in Dallas.  I…"

"My opinion fwiw: I'm not one to shower LinkedIn with love but ... Technically, the complaint has no merit.  The plaintiff and attorney clearly did not consult any expert as it shows no  knowledge of how login APIs work.  Not that…"

"I agree.  Just making sure that when we promote LinkedIn propaganda, we show the full truth, not the half they only want you to see,  :-) "

Marc Freedman replied to Vincent Wright's discussion #LINKEDIN: What are hidden contacts? in the group My Linkedin Power Forum
"Of course this is just another partial truth as LinkedIn doesn't tell you about its own HIDDEN limits.  LinkedIn does NOT bring in ALL your contacts.  Nor does it allow you send or receive LinkedIn invitation from all your…"

LinkedIn, you make me laugh

I was testing a Custom Quicklink order where a LinkedIn member can provide a branded link to his contacts for one click invitations.  On the LinkedIn invitation page I was greeted by a new message that I was now required to enter the email address of all invitees because several past recipients said they didn't know me.  But if I clicked a special link I'd see a new page (below) where I could agree to be a good boy in the future and the restriction…See More

LinkedIn pats itself on the back

Have you seen LinkedIn's self-serving 200 Million Member announcement?  Even worse they allow you to share it, including with a LinkedIn group, where it shows up with the subject "My Part in LinkedIn's 200 Million Member Milestone." To which I reply ..I'd be wary smoking the weed of LinkedIn's pat on its own back.  They haven't shown "what's next".  Indeed  they're known quite to the contrary for NOT involving and informing their…See More

"Ning weirdness.  My reply of an hour ago briefly displays and than collapses to nothing. (Maybe they use the same developers as LinkedIn.)  Here it is again.  My apologies for the duplication. Vincent, they're a huge company…"
