Bye bye LinkedIn, thanks for nothing.
Every time I get one of these “Unknown spammer xxx’s invitation is waiting for your response I’m thinking “I should really delete my account there”. Then life goes on, and you add another few people that you actually do know.
Today I saw a tweet pointing to the new user agreement, and that may just be too much :
“Additionally, you grant LinkedIn a nonexclusive, irrevocable, worldwide, perpetual, unlimited, assignable, sublicenseable, fully paid up and royalty-free right to us to copy, prepare derivative works of, improve, distribute, publish, remove, retain, add, process, analyze, use and commercialize, in any way now known or in the future discovered, any information you provide, directly or indirectly to LinkedIn, including, but not limited to, any user generated content, ideas, concepts, techniques and/or data to the services, you submit to LinkedIn, without any further consent, notice and/or compensation to you or to any third parties.”
I don’t think I do.
Service link: this is how you do it
