Sincerely, Ally: LinkedIn promotes a competitive, sometimes negative online culture (Daily Free Press)

The Daily Free Press: Sincerely, Ally: LinkedIn promotes a competitive, sometimes negative online culture. “For those of you unfamiliar with the website, LinkedIn launched in 2003 as an online database for job-seekers looking to discover employment opportunities and network with industry professionals. In 2016, Microsoft bought it for $26.2 billion, and there are tens of millions of recent graduates and students registered on the site. LinkedIn shares the same features of social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter — timelines, chat boxes and status updates. Yet despite its large number of users, LinkedIn has somehow avoided controversy regarding the toxic online culture it perpetuates.”
