Be careful who you recommend on LinkedIn

Be careful who you recommend on LinkedIn | All About LinkedIn | Scoop.it

 

 

Who you recommend on LinkedIn really does matter.  If they screw up, your thumbs-up could come back to haunt you.

 

Take Pax Dickinson, who was forced to resign from Business Insider on Tuesday. He was the online publication's chief technology officer until Silicon Valley blog Valleywag drew attention to his caustic speech on Twitter and elsewhere.

 

 

 

His comments, which included rape jokes and enmity toward gender inequality in tech, led to a public outcry.

 

Standing in stark contrast, however, is Dickinson's professional LinkedIn page. On it are three glowing recommendations from former colleagues at different companies, which include statements like this: "Employers will not be disappointed with his work and determination."

 

The advertising executive who wrote that, Joseph Panzarella at New York firm JWT, stands by the assessment he made in 2010. Panzarella admits he would never utter the kinds of remarks that drew Dickinson so much criticism, but he sees the recommendation as a narrowly-defined endorsement.

Indeed, the look is much cleaner, with more white space. And, much to my relief, navigating between the various modules—profile, home, messaging, jobs, notifications, my network, etc.—is much easier. You click on "more" in the upper right corner to access other modules, and the look of all the modules is now consistent.

These changes to the platform are more cosmetic than technical and only time will tell if they enhance the site long term. For newcomers and those who don’t use the advanced features, the changes are certainly worth it. For more experienced users, it doesn’t offer much in terms of newness yet. However, it’s still early days for potentially larger changes, as Microsoft only acquired LinkedIn in December.
