e will we assign fairly meaningless endorsements as profiles inflate with frivolous “likes”?
At least written endorsements (Linkedin’s old method) require some reflection on the part of the endorser and typically include specifics readers can assess within a relative framework. Not just “I endorse Will’s skills in XYZ because… well, because… well he’s a nice guy and I like him and he endorsed me… see his picture???"
The only part I don’t feel is frivolous is Linkedin’s tendency here to be cheapening the Brand, with “Facebook like” antics. Worse yet, references to SEO criteria discussed in the past based on these endorsements scare me (GIGO (garbage in, garbage out)).
Put me in the “Not a Fan” category.…
