FULL STORY: Social networking website LinkedIn has added a new reaction button to give users a broader choice beyond ‘Like,’ ‘Comment’ or ‘Share.’
“Our new ‘Get A Real Job’ button is already proving a popular option since it was introduced yesterday,” says LinkedIn boss Jeff Weiner.
The ‘Get A Real Job’ reaction button is being used heavily on posts featuring selfie videos posted by users sharing generic business advice and passing themselves off as ‘experts.’
“Unfortunately our platform has become over run by users with extremely questionable job titles, like ‘coach,’ mentor’ or ‘enabler,'” says Weiner.
“It remains unclear how any of them actually make money.”
It’s understood LinkedIn is now also considering adding a ‘Stop, Please Just Stop,’ button.
“We want our users to start reacting in a more honest way,” says Jeff Weiner.
