This could be a huge impact for them. The incentive to create groups on Linkedin will diminish, if group owners don't have much control.
Can't say I am surprised. Again, this is the problem with companies luring in with Free stuff and then having to charge people..It will get interesting. Social Media was never FREE (it costs us time and now money too).
(NING started will all free platforms and ended having to change it last year)
Shannon, with their IPO pending, LinkedIn is most likely finding another way to increase revenues. It wouldn't surprise me if even more free features are eliminated in the next few months
It's still working fine! It's juts that the "send message" is not showing in the search results. Instead they show "send InMail". Go to the profile and you will see the send message link.
I appreciate your thoughts- we all run our businesses differently and have different requirements. LinkedIn never was a requirement for me to be successful, but the the comments and a special few people who wrote them made for interesting reading, and some had good ideas.
