Hang on LinkedIn I didn’t sign up for that.

So I use LinkedIn … I’m not sure why? I’m not looking for a job and well I don’t find it that great to make business contacts. The groups I used be a part of I felt were extremely spammy and ended up with me just turning them off. I kind of don’t see the point unless you’re in HR or a recruitment agency then it must be a case of DROOL you mean I can just find people here?.

Yesterday LinkedIn pissed me off I found out via someone on Google Plus that my photo could be used in advertising on there?

Hang on when did I agree to that?

LinkedIn may sometimes pair an advertiser’s message with social content from LinkedIn’s network in order to make the ad more relevant. When LinkedIn members recommend people and services, follow companies, or take other actions, their name/photo may show up in related ads shown to you. Conversely, when you take these actions on LinkedIn, your name/photo may show up in related ads shown to LinkedIn members. By providing social context, we make it easy for our members to learn about products and services that the LinkedIn network is interacting with.

Ways to piss me off … lesson 1 sign me up to something and make like I agree with random advertising I’ve no control of.


So yet another reason I don’t much see a use for LinkedIn though I’ve probably originally agreed to LinkedIn’s terms and conditions this is just wrong.
