Didn't MS and Oracle notice that LinkedIn is Abandoned Amusement Park today?
Perhaps LinkedIn was a cool place to be 5-10 years ago. Today most LinkedIn profiles are outdated or just a facade (look what a nice individual I am). The real talent does not waste time on social networks, besides big companies like Google contractually prevent most of their employees to stay on LinkedIn to avoid head-hunters. My experience shows that people go to LinkedIn rarely, when out of job or shopping for a better job. LinkedIn to me starts resembling a used car dealership today: a little polished from outside, yet aging and with narcistic content. Obviously Microsoft discovered this sad reality about LinkedIn database after paying for mostly crap content more than 20 Billions, and now was probably looking how to reduce losses on their balance sheet by selling the same "success story" to other envious for a piece of social pie industry veterans with plenty of cash. Not the first time for Microsoft to fall victim to "abandoned amusement park" business ideas. Remember Nokia?
