LinkedIn boasts +120 million members who
all agree to be bound to their User Agreement, but few LinkedIn members noticed
that on June
16, 2011 the LinkedIn User Agreement changed. LinkedIn's new User Agreement
is not radically different from previous versions. However since the LinkedIn
User Agreement binds +120 million members world-wide it seems that these
members would want to know that members expressly agree that they will comply
10 B "Don't Undertake the following" including (without limitation):
Act dishonestly or unprofessionally by engaging in unprofessional behavior by
posting inappropriate, inaccurate, or objectionable content to LinkedIn;
Publish inaccurate information in the designated fields on the profile form
(e.g., do not include a link or an email address in the name field). Please
also protect sensitive personal information such as your email address, phone
number, street address, or other information that is confidential in nature;
Invite people you do not know to join your network;
Upload a profile image that is not your likeness or a head-shot photo;
How many people violate LinkedIn's
User Agreement every day? If LinkedIn terminates members for violating the User
Agreement they run the risk they become ostracized from an important Social
Media network, so one would think it important to read the User Agreement!
