A little bird told me you’re #failing @LinkedIn
It has been some weeks since the divorce between Twitter and LinkedIn, yet in some cases it would appear that the message of the separation has not got through.
Even today there are over 100,000 updates gone out using hashtags inside of LinkedIn, don’t they realise that it just makes them look less professional than they are in the flesh?
When you are managing your personal and company brands online it is essential you use the right language, the right style and the right message – so what does using hashtags and @’s in LinkedIn say about you? If we’re being nice it says that you use an aggregator like Hootsuite, Tweetdeck or Buffer and you’re using the same message down multiple channels (you’d never do that would you?) at worse that you’re not up to date and not professional.
So if you @makingLinkedIn work for you and don’t want to #FAIL then #STOPNOW or get yourself over to follow @thelinkedinman or get in touch to get some therapy or perhaps a course.
