Which is exactly why I shut down my account three years ago... trying to much to compete with, distance themselves from, yet integrate with facebook.

re: LinkedIn Tips: 10 Ways To Do More
Ditto. I hate the way these slide shows work: I hate having to click "more" to expand a 2-line window to show all 3 lines of text, on every slide. I don't mind needing to click 'More' on the first one, but once I start going from slide to slide, it should automatically show the entire text on each one, because I've already declared that I want to read it. But most of the time, there's so little content on each slide that there's no reason for multiple slides; two or three pages would be plenty to cover every topic in the 12-slide show.

Debra
I love your writing. I understand the format in which it is written since InformationWeek is most likely striving to improve its page ranking. May I please give you my perspective regarding this twelve windows split article? Please bear with me but it is plainly annoying. I cannot read it on readability, I cannot read in on clearly, I cannot paste it into my Evernote account. I cannot print it for future reference. This formatting is chasing me away from your article, this website and altogether from promoting your work to my Twitter Followers (which i have done many times in the past without a single acknowledgement from your part). Debra do you please have any suggestions on how to motivate me to remain one of your motivated and enthusiastic reader?
Respectful Regards from this side of the pond. Bruno Gebarski @BrunoGebarski (on Twitter)

I liked using Linked for maintaining professional connections. I HATE the obnoxious spam machine it is turning into. There is a reason I RUN away from facebook. The "endorsements" thing ranks very high on the list of Linked annoyances.

I think that before everyone pats Linked In on the shoulder a discussion of its truly amazing SWAM system is in order.
