LINKEDIN: Another reason NOT to use your employer’s email adress on LinkedIn

LinkedIn to a Lawsuit
by Jim Hammerand Mar 31 2010

*** begin quote ***

As case law develops, courts could decide whether the online connections employees make at work belong to the employee or employer. Courts, Cotter said, have “a lot of discretion” in deciding whether comparable customer lists and contacts are trade secrets and whether social-networking activity can be covered by competitive agreements.

*** end quote ***

Clearly, if you have a non-compete, then you’ve got a problem.

But, it can’t hurt to make sure that your LinkedIn account looks “personal”.

I’d go so far as to say you should NEVER use social networking from the company’s hardware, software, or network.

With 3G, 4G, and public wifis for networking. With iphone, ipad, netbooks, and cheap notebooks. With Open Source Software, as opposed to the corporate Microsoft suite. All demonstrate the difference.

imho.

Remember the sources of my education: I’m just a fat old white guy injineer with Law from watching Judge Judy, Medical from Doctor Phil, Building from Holmes on Homes, and Investing from Bernie Made-off.

LINKEDIN: Offhandedly, just ask folks for help

Connecting on LinkedIn: Quality or quantity?
Anna Jacobson February 4th, 2009

*** begin quote ***

However, in the middle of a detailed post about creating community on LinkedIn, F. John Reinke, offhandedly comments, “Create a LinkedIn group (It takes weeks to get this done)…”

Remember that most of the people writing about the benefits of LinkedIn have, in truth, been poking around LinkedIn answering questions and making connections for months, possibly years, before they posted their article making you feel inadequate, behind the curve, and left out.

*** end quote ***

I have been blundering about with LinkedIn since they hit prime time. I’ve grouched about their failure to be responsive to suggestions and down right hostile to their early adopters and champions. I’ve wish for a competitor to arise — I’ve dubbed it NiDeknil as a placeholder for all the things LinkedIn could have been. At no time have I ever tried to make anyone feel “feel inadequate, behind the curve, and left out”; if anything, that’s how I feel about my relationship with LinkedIn. I can’t point out many more early advocates who have been bludgeoned by LinkedIn. Figuratively speaking. The biggest misconception that I try to communicate is that “LinkedIn is NOT networking”. AND, anyone, who needs help, just has to ask! No charge for “premium membership” unlike LinkedIn.

LINKEDIN: Scammer sighted on LinkedIn

Saturday, August 29, 2009

OVER ON Vincent Wright’s MyLinkedinPowerForum

*** begin quote ***

I googled him and found out that in addition of being a LI member (http://www.linkedin.com/pub/mr-isaac-howells/13/7b1/35 and http://www.linkedin.com/pub/isaac-howells/12/b23/944 where you will notice that the same person works in two different African countries and has no connections), I also found out the Spanish based version of http://www.fraudwatchers.org/forums/index.php where warnings have been issued about this person being part of a worldwide fraud attempt.

*** end quote ***

The scammers “DO” social networking too. Forewarned is forearmed!

LINKEDIN: Notes don’t seem to be working?

Saturday, February 14, 2009

I added a note to a contact, saved it, and xed out. Coming back the note is “gone”?

Any ideas?

LINKEDIN: Groups killed

Tuesday, August 26, 2008

LinkedIn is further mudding the waters with group. Without disclosure or discussion, it is making unilateral changes. It no longer passes through to the underlying Yahoo Group. And, the management tools are gone. It makes it just worthless.

Oh well. When the LinkedIn competitor comes along maybe they will treat the PAYING users as if they mattered.

*** begin quote ***

First, thank you for managing your group on LinkedIn. We sincerely appreciate the time and effort you devote to your members, and we know they value it. Together you have made Groups one of the top features on LinkedIn.

This Friday, we will be adding several much-requested features to your group:

Discussion forums: Simple discussion spaces for you and your members. (You can turn discussions off in your management control panel if you like.)
Enhanced roster: Searchable list of group members.
Digest emails: Daily or weekly digests of new discussion topics which your members may choose to receive. (We will be turning digests on for all current group members soon, and prompting them to set to their own preference.)
Group home page: A private space for your members on LinkedIn.
We’re confident that these new features will spur communication, promote collaboration, and make your group more valuable to you and your members. We hope you can come by LinkedIn on Friday morning to check out the new functionality and get a group discussion going by posting a welcome message.

Sincerely,
The LinkedIn Groups Team

LINKEDIN: Groups “broken”; where competition!

New LinkedIn Group Issues
LinkedIn just changed (translation: “broke”) many things about LinkedIn Groups

*** end quote ***

Unfortunately, when LinkedIn went for the big buxs, it showed the Leadership’s true colors. It tells you a lot about people. How do they follow their principles. I’ve become unenamoured with LinkedIn over the years. When they were struggling for traction, it was come one and come all. Then, they got testy with the super connectors. Then, they got testy with me, even though I am a paying customer, not a super connector, and not an open networker. Then, the final straw, they lawyered up on Vincent Wright, one of their early and most popular “champions”. He did more support then they did … for free. He single handly did more to keep their start ont he rise than they did. He finally got disgusted.

The LinkedIn folks better hop that no comptitor targets them. I think they’ll be lunch. No one is suggesting that they don’t have the right to make their rules. But, a little openness, gratitude, and appreciation of why they got all those big buxs.

It wasn’t them. It was all the Vincent Wrights, and a grazillion little people.

Where is the competition?
