I just received this email yesterday congratulating me on the achievement of having one of the top 1% most viewed LinkedIn profiles for 2012. I am humbled and shocked.
In the same email they announced that have now reached 200 million members. I just had to share, since I find it ironic that so many years ago I had some personal exchanges regarding the value and privacy risks of using a service such as LinkedIn.
I do have at least a few beefs with LinkedIn. I wish they’d either raise or drop the 50 group limit. I like the idea they just launched of having a separate section of your profile for Volunteering and Non-Profit organizations. So much that I moved some of my previous roles to them, only to find out that the recommendations that people have taken their precious time to leave for me can not be moved. After contacting support, I was told that they currently do not have this feature. Now I get to move some of those items back at some point, so I can preserve those invaluable recommendations. argh. Oh well, it is still a terrific site and obviously no one is perfect.
