LinkedIN Is NOT About You!

linkedin_is_not_about_you

Attractive and inspiring content is what’s missing on LinkedIN, here is why: people who brag about how great they are, do not realise how annoying it actually is!

I quote this comment from a member of a music conversation group I joined:

“Self-promotion seems to be the modus operandi of a majority of desperate acts on LinkedIN, but most seem to have no idea what they’re doing. 95% of everyone’s feed is self-glorifying, poorly written, close ended statements about someone’s new ‘project’. This sort of posting invites no feedback, and sickens me in that, here is an act – insisting that they are the greatest thing since God – yet they can’t even summon up the creative energy generated by a sack of potatoes to convince me that they’re worth listening to.

If it isn’t that, it seems to be someone wedging in some completely irrelevant – and unwarranted – cheeky political comment.

I’m not necessarily picking on the members of this group, but it’s the growing trend that I see which generally makes me remain silent, or simply leave LinkedIn groups.”

Now is the time to make our LinkedIN feed relevant again and teaching each other something new, everyday.
