I recently got back on Linkedin. I needed to write endorsements for a couple of former students through LI because companies where they are interviewing required recommendations through the social network—so I got back on. I hate Linkedin because it makes me feel so unbusinesslike and underachieving. I don’t network; I don’t have a cool job at a cool, trendy, studio; and I don’t wear a suit and tie. I just go to my jobs; do my work; and sleep, ride motorcycles, and workout in my offtime. Linkedin makes me feel like Dilbert. It’s my own hang-up, but whatever.
I now have 101 connections. I don’t really communicate with ~90% of them IRL. 😶
