One year after I enrolled in Linkedin. Linkedin didn’t help me find a job. But it did help me waste a lot of time, including for finding 347 friends.
What I tend to find particularly weird is the news feed. Among the revolutionary “X is celebrating 3 years with X firm », which is always being politely liked by 10 people, it’s a real banquet of bad slogans. I guess that being friend with their boss, or their bosses boss, petrifies all my linkedin friends. But the phrases they like or create look exactly like a bad corporate brochure.
Examples (excerpts from today’s newsfeed):
“you want to win? promote more women”
“If a cluttered desk is a sign of a cluttered mind, just what does an empty desk mean?” by super-likable Einstein
