Let’s get some dialogue going from those who use LinkedIn about what topics should get filtered out of the mainstream into “job” forums.
I am a custom clothier who regularly posts about fashion trends. This has been my specialty for over 20 years. Lately, however, my posts have getting booted out of regular posts and into “jobs”.
I have a somewhat unique background and accordingly am a member of diverse groups. I am am a CPA, was a partner in the largest single office CPA firm in the country, was a CEO and Chairman of the Board of several companies, and accordingly am a member of CPA groups, CEO groups, etc. as well as fashion-related trade groups.
If one is accepted into a group, it seems to me that as long as one isn’t blatantly selling a product, their posts should be accepted by the group. I am told annually by LinkedIn that my profile gets the top 1% of hits in the world…each year! Someone must be interested in what I’m posting…yet, of late, my posts are getting bumped into “job” boards.
Most who are on LinkedIN with whom I speak are on for one reason…to further their careers one way or another. Most abide by the rules and try to post about subjects over which they command some lever of expertise.
Are there new algorithms that automatically kick out posts based on certain words? I have reviewed other posts in groups where my posts are getting booted…and must say there are many posts that are explicitly job solicitation posts…which are not booted into the “job” board.
Can anyone add anything?Read More
