IN DEFENCE OF LINKED IN

I had a person dispute my contention posted on “The Conversation” in which I maintain that Linked In is abpout professional rarther than social (as in Facebook, Twitter and so on) contexts. I replied as follows:

“Sorry _____ but LInkedIn operates on the basis of being about a professional context of communication and that is the way it is used. On the very few occasions I have come across a socially oriented post, it has been accompanied by posts suggesting this to be an inappropriate use. People may at times post of PROFESSIONAL success and accomplishment but that is about as far as it goes. It also covers contribuition within organisation and recognition of occupational success.

It does not descend to nasty and slimy posts that scarily people and personality. To that extent and for those reasons it is uplifting in purpose and not degrading in intention.”
