The Losers


LinkedIn in 2020 has literally turned into Facebook and whilst it is the sign-of the times where people need to find ways to validate themselves, look for assurances and share good-news stories, LinkedIn has been in decline for a long time. LinkedIn has too many apps: Job Search, SlideShare, Learning, Recruiter, Sales Navigator and something call ‘Elevate”, which purports to “build your reputation by sharing smart content” but the algorithm is failing as more and more real-content providers are out viewed and out-shared and out-liked by the “Facebook” type posts. LinkedIn which floated a year before Facebook, has found it difficult to monetise the platform and anyone who has used LinkedIn Ads and compared them to Facebook, Twitter and Google will see how dreadful the interface is.

When Microsoft bought LinkedIn the plan was to create “a vibrant network that brings together a professional’s information in LinkedIn’s public network with the information in Office 365 and Dynamics”. From what 2020 showed us, this may not be the case. For more details see the article written by Lance Ng
