Since I just added my résumé which mentions my LinkedIn page, I thought I’d mention something else I just discovered about LinkedIn.
I would normally never give out any of my contacts’ email addresses to third parties under any circumstance, but I decided there was very little risk to do so at LinkedIn because it is a largely used website with many users that is also eTrust certified. Unfortunately, I have also heard eTrust certification isn’t exactly hard to get and shouldn’t have too much stock put in it, but it is still something.
Oh, LinkedIn is also a very buggy system in and of itself. I very often get timeout errors and many other errors to the extent of “The server cannot perform this operation at this time, please try again later”. A friend of mine has also been having trouble linking our profiles together for more than a week now, with no response to his email to them… besides a type of auto response he got back that had absolutely nothing to do with the reported problem.
