    linkedin "intro"

    Got this mail in my inbox this morning. I dont use linkedin, but just to let you know !!



    LinkedIn has released a new product called Intro. Intro reconfigures your
    iOS device (e.g. iPhone, iPad) so that all of your emails go through
    LinkedIn’s servers. Once you install the Intro app, all of your emails,
    both sent and received, are transmitted via LinkedIn’s servers. LinkedIn is
    forcing all your IMAP and SMTP data through their own servers and then
    analyzing and scraping your emails for data.
    This means LinkedIn will have full access to the content of your email, can
    change the content of your emails, store your emails, change the security of
    your device, and can break your secure email encryption.

          Half of my inbox is their daily ****ing spam, so they might as well be running it altogether.

            I got asked by a well known politician to endorse him recently on it, I sent a mail to ask what should I endorse him for, he never did a tap for me and I had never worked with him. Never heard a word back.

            The only thing Linkedin is missing is being able to endorse people for being good endorsers, have a skill called "Endorsing".

                    LOL, I know. I was looking for Stealing, Lying, Money Laundering and Acting The Gobdaw options in the skill sets but no joy.

                    Every time I hear this person on the radio I laugh. It's a laugh mixed with sadness though. There really are some complete gob****es in power

                      This. What I find to be genuinely invidious is the weight which those in the HR/recruitment/headhunting sectors are attaching to it though. It has become de rigeur. I have enough **** to deal with during my working week, without needing to make sure I allocate enough time to update my skillset, or endorse a few strangers, post to a blog of some group I signed up to etc, etc.

                      Make sure to post informative hints/tips - when 99% of the stuff which gets posted isn't your own thinking, rather some cut & paste job from some weary consultant hack on the other side of the globe.

                      It's ******** for the corporate chattering classes. Only a tiny fraction of who are genuinely productive. It's the preserve of the tablet-wielders. The consumers who would rather be seen dead that slaving away on a laptop/desktop like some plebian producer.

                      The only people who could possibly have the time to 'run' their profile to maximum advantage are either unemployed and likely bull****ting or the underemployed and definitely bull****ting.

                      And recruiters.

                        I removed about 90% of my contacts a few months ago, and now only accept connections from people I've worked with or know.

                        It can be a useful tool, but agree with Red above, I do laugh when I read some peoples profiles and their so called achievements e.g. the project tea boy saying he directed and managed a multi million quid project, when the fupper struggled to get the right order in at Starbucks.

                        Some people have a neck like a jockeys bollix ...

                          I use it for business - it is a great way of tracking people down if you are in any kind of sales game. I've got a lot of business introductions from it, and people on LinkedIn generally don't mind being contacted for genuine business reasons - they have put themselves up there after all.

                          One thing I don't get is people who connect with others in their own organisation - I mean, what's the point?

                            Do you have an opinion on the change in the listing of Contacts so that one cannot get a listing in alphabetical order of surnames?

                              Because five or ten years later when I find out there is a contract going in a certain place I check who do I know there and get the full low down before deciding if I'd like to progress or if I am wasting my time
