Recently I’ve had quite a few invitations to join LinkedIn.
So I joined and checked it out and there’s something about it makes me feel a little uneasy.
I think it has to do with my instant aversion to the idea of actively “networking” as a business activity – it just brings the cynic out in me.
The language used doesn’t help win me over either…
4.6 million experienced professionals already use LinkedIn
I mean, what or who on earth is an “experienced professional”?
Also, the very nature of something that you have to belong to and lives behind closed walls goes against my idea of connecting with people. Doesn’t the very essence of the world wide web allow us to connect with each other already?
Maybe I’m missing the point, but I don’t think it’s for me.
I’m quite happy being LinkedOut. You know where to find me 🙂
