The LinkedIn Eye Test: Is LinkedIn Becoming Like Facebook?

Comments

LinkedIn Eye Test

This is just a random thought, but has your LinkedIn stream started to look increasingly like Facebook? It seems that as the social network becomes more mainstream, more people are posting pictures, personal status updates and sometimes straight up spam. Take for example the above Eye Test that has been circulating LinkedIn. It has about 1,200 Likes and 15,000 comments. Do people actually think this has some meaning with regards to your career? As though seeing the word “TEAM” means you’re good at working in teams or something. It will be interesting to see if LinkedIn starts to crack down on this stuff or it’s just inevitable when a social network gets to a certain size. God help us if Quiz apps and Celeb Trivia ever comes to LinkedIn.

Comments

One of the best things about third party Twitter apps is that the developers take the time to put in features that may not appeal to the masses, but appeal to a small section of users and power users. It’s what makes these apps much more fun than the mainstream first party apps. For example, with Blaq, you can now check out someone’s Klout score. Or with UberSocial, you can create circles of people you want to follow more closely. With the latest update to Blaq, power users on Twitter are sure to have a lot more fun with their PlayBook.
