Dear LinkedIn, Did You Forget You’re a Business Site?

I don’t want to send or receive GIFs at LinkedIn. Now, I can stop myself from sending them, but I can’t stop people from sending them to me, but you can.

I’m a big LinkedIn user. I post something there almost every day. I love to connect with people.

What makes me love it? Because LinkedIn has managed to stay business focused. The fact that it began as a networking site means that most people (in my experience) have their real names with their real experience in their profiles. This keeps the trolls down. After all, if you say you work for Company X and then make a comment about how fat and ugly I am, it doesn’t take that much work to figure out your boss or other company official and then tag them.

    1. I meant not useful on Linkedln (forgot to proof read before posting)
      Business associates are not always personal friends and social interaction should follow protocol for business

  2. I know I’m late to the comment-party, but if you are receiving photos of naked or semi-naked men from people via LinkedIn, can’t that be reported somehow? I mean, why would that be acceptable?
