    Great article Michael. The most noticeable difference is cutting back access to free users, like advanced search. I think they will try to force people into paying for services. When people have had thing free they resent then having to pay.

    They killed Hotmail and Skype for usability and functionality, I expect nothing less for them sith Linked - which is why I have posted there in 9 months.

    Nice article, @Mike Rana. I'm not sold on the merger either.

    I have also seen viewership and engagement go down on LinkedIn since joining the platform in 2010. I got very active for a while to the point where one change in my profile landed me a job.

    Yet I found it was a lot of work. Too much. I joined many groups only to find most of the like ghost towns. Some of them were personal in nature, but still the feeling on LinkedIn is professional.

    I have seen many other successful business tools (like IBM's Blueworks Live) that have chat built in, yet nobody uses it. They use the company's chat like the tool you mentioned: Skype for Business (formerly Microsoft Office Communicator and Microsoft Lync) ... even that provides a glimpse into what happens when MS buys something!

    I just don't see the tie to Office apps like Word and Excel needing SM. They already have some collaboration built in.

    And with LinkedIn active users at only 25% (http://venturebeat.com/2015/10/29/linkedin-now-has-400m-users-but-only-25-of-them-use-it-monthly/), it seems it was sold as a database of people - potential sales leads?

    #1 I've found LinkedIn to delete a few of my personal posts and those of other LinkedIn trainers (especially when we criticise LinkedIn). I made sure I didn't criticise without a suggested solution there for a while but it didn't make any difference.
