    • Meh, just less active. I started using the Screen Time app and realized I picked the right username.

    • Yeah it’s a lot of the same discussions over again. But that’s okay, I lurk from the shadows, dropping turds of wisdom wherever they be needed.

    What annoys me is when people say “x company alum” - i.e. “Facebook Alum” - yo, it’s not a university bruh

    Your work history doesn’t show up in comments, but a headline that includes “ex-google, ex-fb, etc” will easily show a wide audience that you’ve worked at top tier companies when you comment or show up in a connections list. It’s an easily way to gain credibility without someone needing to view a your profile/work history.

      Imagine caring what people in LinkedIn comments think of you.

      Some people like to be socially engaged on LinkedIn and are proud of their accomplishments. I’m not sure I fault them for enjoying any positive attention they may receive from their previous hard work. I also think social networks benefit from individuals that are highly accomplished and contribute content on the platform.

    Or saying Facebooker or Googler on Instagram for example. Why?! Like people will follow you not cos you're interesting but because you're working at Google? Idk
