Can you trust LinkedIn?
Read this post from Mr. LinkedIn: This Is Why LinkedIn Should Never ‘Retire’ A Feature
I totally agree with Mark. How can we continue to use a system if they keep removing features? Especially if the features are something I build (by adding my content, like a CRM / contact manager)?
As I use it, then they remove it, I lose trust.
And then they announce the next greatest thing, and I forgive and use that, and they REMOVE IT.
It only takes so many times before I don’t trust them at all.
I revisit my question: what is the value proposition of LinkedIn? Is it that I can search for and find important contacts? And hopefully, somehow, communicate with them?
Or is it all the other stuff (a la pinterest + facebook + twitter, etc.)?
If they keep moving their focus around, I go back to the primary value, and if that changes, then maybe I visit them a lot less often.
A la myspace….!
