Should We Be Shopping for Love on LinkedIn? - Love Bombs19

June 5th, 2014

If you're on LinkedIn you may or may not know some people are looking for love and using Linkedin like a dating site. And now others are building apps to make that even easier.  Where are the boundaries between social and business?  I have very strong feelings about all of that and share my thoughts.

Do you think LinkedIn should be used for finding love?

UPDATE: I actually heard from a representatives of one of the apps that uses Linkedin profiles for dating and they clarified that people have to opt in to be included as a potential match, it doesn't just pull everybody, which makes me feel a bit better. But the bottom line is I still find the idea to be off putting and it encourages the use of Linkedin data in a way that is totally unnecessary. If you want to date, use dating sites.  I don't want to have to worry if people are puffing up their LinkedIn profiles because they are angling for a date.
