Why do I have a LinkedIn
@mike I think I will be deleting my LinkedIn. I can't think of a genuine benefit it's ever given me.
@s0 actually I had an account a looong time ago because a friend invited me and kept tagging as having some skill.
Every day or two I'd get an email, I'd log in, acknowledge that some friend had tagged me for something and close it.
So I turned off all emails. Ages later I remembered it was there, logged in saw a backlog of pointless crap, deleted my account.
This also deleted my "don't email me" preference, so the next day I started getting mailed again about how my friends had tagged me ...
@mike lol I worked out why I wasn't getting emails. I had dropped the email alias I'd only used there from receivability so they've been being rejected by my mail host for who knows how long
@s0 I ask myself this every time I get Yet another Email. And then I ask my friends, in my head, why they update LinkedIn
@s0 Deleted mine ten years ago when all it contained were coworkers who kept tagging me as having skills I never did have, and complete strangers who Wanted To Add Me To Their Professional Network. Haven’t missed it one bit.
@s0 get a comedy one because it's a comedy site.
Personally I only accept endorsements for D&D stats.
I'm pretty sure even recruiters are there ironically.
