Are LinkedIn Being Straight with us?

9/4/2021
Why don’t they tell us the truth? Why do LinkedIn keep things hidden from us? LinkedIn have no obligation to tell us what is going on, they are a private organisation and are perfectly entitled to their secrets…but is it clever to keep your users second-guessing? What impression do we form of a company when they lack authenticity in this way? Does it matter to you? LinkedIn will continue to evolve but they could achieve so much more by adopting a more open style of communication.

The news that LinkedIn were launching a Freelancer booking service similar to the likes of Fiverr and Upwork was originally broken in February this year…since then we have heard very little until last week when a number of people reported a new feature allowing them to ask for reviews of their services. With the full Marketplace feature planned for launching in Autumn/Fall this year, I thought it was time to start planning for its arrival.

Where’s the line?…

LinkedIn content has changed almost beyond recognition from where it was 10 years ago, even perhaps 5 years ago.
