In Your LinkedIn
Like any popular social media platform… LinkedIn is subject to spammers who think they can profit simply by wallpapering the place in rubbish.
- A link to the offending member’s profile.
- A copy of the inappropriate content.
Remember also that all members have the ability to permanently hide LI users, from their news feed, that they find inappropriate. This will also hide all future updates posted by this connection.
As with Facebook, LinkedIn’s TOS includes restricted terms on: “using the Services commercially without LinkedIn’s authorization”. (Dear spammers, this means you.)
The TOS also warns not to, “Participate, directly or indirectly, in the setting up or development of a network that seeks to implement practices that are similar to sales by network or the recruitment of independent home salespeople for the purposes of creating a pyramid scheme or other similar practices”
There are also promotional restrictions on LI Groups, warning not to “Sell, sponsor, or otherwise monetize a LinkedIn Group or any other service or functionality of LinkedIn, without the express written permission of LinkedIn.”
Working together we can help keep LinkedIn a cleaner place for everyone!
