LinkedIn goes teen

2013-08-20 22:16:01.932319+00 by Dan Lyke 4 comments

WSJ: LinkedIn's Minimum Age Drops to 14 in U.S.. So "like totally making out with some girl" is now going to become a heavily endorsed skill.

I sure hope so! Though I'm still actually not sure what the old meaning was...

I actually get some work/business value out of LinkedIn because it is where the biz-dev, sales and some technical people in the work world put up a facade that is appropriate to the work world, and I get to see that the guy I'm in a conference with tomorrow has a relevant past, or works with a competitor.. I've helped people get jobs via LinkedIn and maybe someday I'll need the same. We can see people we are working with "checking us out" and we do the same.

That value may erode quickly.
