IDK What Has Gotten Into You LinkedIn
Guess this week has been the time for the Big Three‘s updates. Facebook updated its total friends count, Twitter now shows the actual or exact retweets and favorites count. Hoping LinkedIn will fix its Connections count too (showing the total connections instead of just 500+), it made the most lame update instead.
Just a few minutes ago, I received an email from LinkedIn which says on the subject: Jonha, be among the first to try our new feature.
Excited as to what the update could be, LinkedIn disappointed me instead.
Linkedin wanted me to try a new feature I have been using for quite sometime now: “Add people you may know”. A feature which could put me in the risk of getting my account suspended as soon as I reach the threshold or certain amount of IDKs (sort of I Don’t Know – the kind of rejection you will most likely get if the people you tried to sent connection request will choose to ignore it). Especially when it keeps on telling me:
“Please note: This message is a notice that you are nearing the threshold of “I don’t know” responses you can receive before you will be required to enter an email address when sending invitations. Please remember to only invite people you know.”
Knowing that LinkedIn could be pretty strict with their policies. Really, now LinkedIn? You want me to try a new feature which will most likely get my account suspended?
