Trolls be gone!

policingI posted this on my Home Page last week and it got some people talking. And admitting they are abiding this abuse without knowing what to do about it.

I am totally sick and tired of being asked to connect to mostly young women either in made-up universities, or bitcoin strategists who look wrong for the part. Or a headshot of a famous person as theirs. Pu-leze!

And changing the default on my profile to encourage them to follow me instead of connecting does not work (found in your Settings), so in my case, LinkedIn has not been able to stop these affronts and wastes of time.

The above graphic shows the fast steps to take, what we all have to do to self-police LinkedIn from these fakes.

Please join me in this. Ask your connections to do so as well. Let’s make this a large grass-roots effort and stop the abuse.

  1. In my profile, I am listed as a “licensed Real Estate agent” and I cannot tell you how many invitations I get and how many “People you may know with similar roles” are involved with RE.
    It is not my main business and I do not want to connect with them. Your graphic’s instructions will help. Thanks, Marc
