LinkedIn isn’t a social media outlet at all.

Rather, it’s a Digital DMV, where one has to update their resume and beg for help before they graciously leave, hoping to never come back.😔

Do you agree with this statement? Is this how LinkedIn was supposed to serve us?

Have you faced the similar challenges?

Mohit Prajapati

Yes, I used to spend good time on LinkedIn more then f.b or insta because I found LinkedIn very useful but right now post on LinkedIn is like people are posting just to post. No doubt LinkedIn Feed become another Facebook

What are the alternative?

Rajesh Garg

May be a more relevent platform where your queries are much more taken seriously than linked in! Basically not a marketplace!

Nihal Hassan

It’s a professional network. Some use it to get hired, some to learn, and some to sell.

Rajesh Garg

Yes it is, but nowadays I am seeing it turning into a personal branding platform!

Nihal Hassan

Yes, some sell.

Rajesh Garg

Definately! Most days are like my linked in messages are just spammed with ads, offerings and what not!

Anjali Jain

Yes I have felt the same !!!😬😬☹️

Rajesh Garg

Oh can you share your experience?

Anjali Jain

i felt that its way too crowded and chaotic ....no substantial gains......this is my experience. It may have have helped others but not me! Its been a year or more - not active on linkedin.....dont feel like like going back.

Rajesh Garg

Any other alternative for Linkedin? Or what all things you want to be improved in such a platform?

Anjali Jain

for networking its good

but for its alternatives and improvements .....i need to ponder a little more on that!

Have you read the awesome cringe worthy posts though? The ones where an employer hires a candidate even though the candidate isn't qualified, purely based on the amazing deeds he/she has performed in their lives? And then people in the comments worshipping the employer for his/her heart of gold? Lol:D

Starke Frau

Yes.Posted thrice in span of 7 mnths for seeking opportunity but no response but yes only i can see people cliche comment "Commenting for better reach"🙄

Nope. I think there are two sides to everything. It is a good platform provided apna kaam nikalo aur baaki cheezon mein dimaag na lagao.
Post content send requests make relationships rinse and repeat.

Rajesh Garg

But major motive for starting LinkedIn was to ease hiring process as far as I know! Correct me if I am wrong!
And nowadays only posts related to personal branding appears there!

Krishna Arora

abhi bhi hota hi hei. Jobs section mein aur direct hr se link banao toh. Personally i think about what i want from the platform not what it's built for.

Linkedin started as a professional networking group and had nothing to do with hiring process back in 2003. Gradually they went into hiring, now they are top of personal branding as well

Most people who don't get jobs on LinkedIn don't understand leverage.

If u treat it like a resume posting website ( which it started off as) u become a number in an excel, a datapoint.Why would someone just give u a job to someone who they don't really know.

Change ur strategies. Immense opportunities there. Takes some time though.

The real wealth lies in sliding into Twitter DMs. Linkedin is not where the action lies.
