A Man Loses His Job For Using LinkedIn At Work?
Rather than write just another post this week, I wanted to instigate a discussion. So here goes:
I think most of us would agree social media is changing the way we communicate and even changing the way we do business. LinkedIn is no exception… 80 Million users worldwide and over 300,000 users in Ireland. But what does the future hold for LinkedIn? Where are they generating their revenue from? When looking at LinkedIn it would appear that they are using premium paid services mainly targeted at the recruitment industry to generate profit. Talent Finder, Job Search and Paid Job Posts are three ways in which LinkedIn currently generates revenue.
So, is there a danger here? Could LinkedIn become too Recruitment focused and end up losing its appeal as a Business Professionals’ Networking site?
Could these be future headlines?
- Man loses his job for using LinkedIn at work.
- 62% of Companies ban LinkedIn from office.
- LinkedIn numbers plummet as members get fed up being hounded by recruiters.
- LinkedIn replaces Monster.com as the world’s biggest Recruitment site.
Let the Debate begin
