LinkedIn no good

28 Jan


Beware of LinkedIn [Why 3 videos? Believe it or not- Youtube refused to upload this video- the next day they published it- after I already uploaded it to other cloud sites- Hmm? I guess the big boys stick together?

LinkedIn is like spyware! 


Update- I have checked the policy of this site [LinkedIn] Yes- as hard as it is to believe- if they can not contact you by email- they will indeed delete all your posts- that's there policy. I know of no other reputable firm that does this to be honest. LinkedIn does have my main email [G mail] as well as multiple ways to contact [Phone- etc]. But they had no response from a former Yahoo account- and that's why they deleted about 5 years of work. For those who do use this site for business- I just think you need to know this upfront.

 As I did my own ‘forensic examination’ of LinkedIn- I have come to the conclusion that they Make Trump and the Russian hacking look like child’s Play!

Ok- I did make a Sunday Sermon video today as I left the Corpus Christi Cathedral- and you will see that post next week.

I’m a few behind at the moment- I hated to waste an entire post for this- But I was worried if I even used the term ‘LInkedIn’ and added to a regular post- it would corrupt my entire Post!

So I added it here as a brief update-

God bless all- John

Yes- even Linkedin- you certainly need some sort of blessing- as millions will now flee your site- [or maybe 10’s? I do tend to exaggerate a bit]

Why so mad?

The last month I have been testing various cloud sites- as well as other web based platforms- some are good- some are not.

I learned that the ‘good’ ones are usually the most common names you see in the industry- the pro’s.

Out of all my sites- some take up a huge amount of storage- those are video sites.

Yet- you have a free amount until you reach a limit.

On pure text based sites [no video] the amount of storage is very minimal- meaning a reputable firm should have no real reason to delete text based posts- with links in them [Though you could upload video to LinkedIn- I don’t- the posts they deleted took up hardly any storage]

Though these posts don’t take up space- because of the many links in them- they take a lot of work.

In short- there was no real incentive for LinkedIn to delete about 5 years of work-

And the last day as I have been posting my last few to linkedIn- each time I log on- I see their constant ads ‘John- start building your network- you only have 3 posts’- [connections]


That’s because you deleted about 2 thousand of them!

So- hopefully I will post soon- and shake the dust off my feet.

Why another post?

I want to get the word out- on many sites- as soon as LinkedIn sees these- they delete them.

 LinkedIn is designed [supposedly] to network professionals- but what you look at [on any site] is how they themselves are doing it.

For instance- the business model they used here- is a very low standard [as explained above]

The incentive to keep text based posts on any site- is high.


In my case LinkedIn has someone who puts the time in to freely advertise their site- because I link to so many other sites [not just Facebook and twitter]-

 So on their side of what they do- the better business model would be to attract this type of ‘free’ advertising-

Of course the last few posts are not what they are looking for.

But it tells me that they are not worthy of the reputation they are trying to instill.

Frankly- this simple post can actually help their program.

I just gave them good business advice- which they need.

MY SITES  [Main site] 

Note- Please do me a favor, those who read/like the posts- re-post them on other sites as well as the site you read them on-  Copy text- download video links [Wordpress- Vimeo] make complete copies of my books/studies and posts- everything is copyrighted by me- I give permission for all to copy and share as much as you like-  I just ask that nothing be sold. We live in an online world- yet- there is only one internet- meaning if it ever goes down- the only access to the teachings are what others have copied or downloaded- so feel free to copy and download as much as you want- it’s all free-

Thanks- John.
