A short post this morning prompted by an email from LinkedIn yesterday evening advising me that I had a new connection request:
My points of contention? Let’s see:
- Random population of anyone’s “title” into the email. Total fail. Kinda like a Twitter auto DM.
- The assumption that anyone requesting a connection with me would have an answer for any question of mine.
- The assumption that their answers would be “high-quality.”
- The fact that I’m going to show you your erroneous thinking in one image.
Sometimes fields that are auto-populated are not such a good idea. After all – if Old Spice can make it personal, so can LinkedIn.
Special thanks to @jodiontheweb for her quick hand at Photoshop today.
