    I get that prior to LinkedIn’s introduction of its job board-esque products that it could properly market itself as a social media site. Interactions between users were typically facilitated by its 21st century version of the trusty Rolodex and were much more akin to traditional networking than advertising.

    Flash forward to LinkedIn’s current business model, which is actually years old now. The vast majority of LinkedIn’s revenues come from the sale of job postings and other recruitment advertising. See http://adage.com/article/digital/content-marketing-comprises-40-linkedin-s-ad-revenue/298375/.

    So, if it walks like a job board, talks like a job board, but claims it isn’t a job board, isn’t it still a job board?

      Has anyone noticed..or even cared..that Linkedin removed it’s “Request Introduction” process?

      I cared.
