An email inbox flooding service whose sole purpose in life is to remind me that a guy I went to high school with would like me to join LinkedIn so he can spam everyone I’ve ever met.
As reported first here on StaffingTalk, the worse-than-Myspace pathetic spam trap that bombards you with authentic-seeming email solicitations and connections from people you don’t know and don’t want to know, otherwise known as LinkedIn, SUCKS. It won’t find you talent and, yes thank you Jon Stewart, won’t help you find a job either.
The irony of the video though is that the most damaging part to LinkedIn’s reputation wasn’t Jon Stewart’s scathing criticism – heck all PR is good PR. Instead it was the lame, false, full-of-himself statements made by LinkedIn’s CEO at the beginning of the town hall clip that make it all too evident that the company is directionless .
