LinkedIn and the Tinder Effect....Knock it off Already!

LinkedIn and the Tinder Effect....Knock it off Already!

I've held my tongue about this one for a LONG time now.聽 I didn't want to appear to be mean but things are totally out of hand. So I am just going to go for it. If I draw fire.....so be it. I can no longer remain silent.I almost called this...

A recent study showed that women at work who wear makeup are less likely to be seen as leaders. On the other hand, if you're smart enough to start your own business - and make a living from it - who cares what other people think? Agree though, Linkedin isn't Instagram. Insta pics kind of make me cringe and not take that person seriously, male or female.

Jerry she sounds like a very wise woman. Is she still around? It would be worth interviewing her. You nailed it. There is nothing new or innovative about it. It's as old as the pin-up girls of the 1950s. That is why when I heard someone labeled a marketing genius for posting photos of women in skimpy bikinis on LinkedIn I rolled my eyes and then BURST out laughing. Give me a break. Next, we'll have naked photos on there. Hey, they are on Twitter. KK has such a following that she is able to sell out her cosmetic contour kits in less than 3 hours after 1 tweet. What's the lesson for young women? I call it sex tape your way to fame and fortune. Post naked photos and porn flicks and you too will be rich and famous. Is this really the type of society we want to create? The challenge is think before you click. Too many men are reacting with the wrong head as if they are on a dating site or porn site. They react as if they are playing Hot or Not. "She's hot." Click! "She's looks hot!" Add her to my network. I'll bet they don't even read the posts any more than they read the profiles on dating sites. It's about the look. Before we know it, we have women with huge following and klout but little education, experience, or substance. It results in an army of KKs generating fortunes which they really have not earned and do not deserve. The danger is that they are now taking opportunities away from talented, hard-working and experienced women who are truly deserving. They don't play the sex card or lead with their sexuality and they are passed over. This is not to be encouraged.

LinkedIn has finally killed Broetry...good-bye and good riddance...

I have never been a fan of anything that smacks of a fad or "flavour of the month". Don't blame me. It's how I was raised. So while many LinkedIn members, including me, struggled to get the content they posted on LinkedIn status updates viewed, some...

Like anything on the internet (memes, bikini babes, cat videos, etc) people tire of it after a while and therefore it becomes less effective as a marketing tool LinkedIn has a right to tweak it's algorithm- and we have a right to try to make the best use of it to get in front of eyeballs if that's our goal- just remember samey-samey copy cat content doesnt do much to improve cred, even if you get a million viewers - because you're not being original

Umbrella with or without rain

It would be somewhat unbearable to use an umbrella in a sunny situation on a summer morning with the clouds wide open to show the beautiful blue sky. Situations can be preparatory, to be part of a context of circumstances. It would be more logical...

Good luck to that. Beyond the data and privacy issues, their entire platform structure and the culture of how people use it would have to be transformed. This is the advantage a new entrant like beBee has - build it right to begin with.
