I Gave Up on LinkedIn. Since my initial attempts to use LinkedIn in 2016, my experience has been anything but awful. Time and again, I've meticulously provided detailed and accurate information, especially during my endeavor to establish a business profile. Despite all my efforts, I'm consistently met with account restrictions.

What heightens my concerns is the noticeable absence of a reliable customer support system. It's baffling that a platform as renowned as LinkedIn doesn't seem to have a straightforward channel for users to reach out, seek clarifications, or address pressing issues. I've scoured their help sections and made numerous efforts to get in touch, but to no avail. Without answers and lacking clarity on these recurrent restrictions, I'm left feeling marginalized and unheard.

The core essence of platforms like LinkedIn is to foster professional connections and opportunities. But when users, particularly businesses, can't rely on the platform's consistency or obtain requisite support, it severely undermines its very purpose. It's with genuine disappointment that I've decided to step away, hoping that in the future, LinkedIn might offer a more transparent, communicative, and user-supportive environment.

I gave them full information about my business, such as official websites, phones, emails. Government is accepted my documents, but not LinkedIn. What are you LinkedIn? Just an awful company registered by some students who don't have time to create normal support system. I even registered this time for premium as a business. But still restricted. If they will take money from my card I will sue them. LinkedIn is the worst company I've ever seen in my life!!! It seems they love bad reviews about themselves. I see there are many bad reviews. Thanks to the internet I found alternatives.

We are a part of a Military 501c3 in Jacksonville, Florida and LinkedIn has locked out the Board Volunteers as many of us have professional LinkedIn pages. Unfortunately, LinkedIn's customer service won't accept State Level 501c3 filings as evidence we exist, and with the same name of the person sending the State document listed on the 501c3 filing. Horrible people, to do this to a Military oriented 501c3. Man... Get a life!

    This is the second time my LinkedIn Account has been closed. I provided my driver's ID. They suggested my account may have been hacked and they needed to verify my account. It was suggested I use my phone number for authentication. But I could never log back into my account. Next, for no reason, not emailing anyone, and not having any connections yet, someone made false accusations about my character or actions. This is what LinkedIn customer service stated about me, "We've deemed the activity in your account is in violation of the LinkedIn User Agreement and Professional Community Policies. Your appeal has been denied and your account has been restricted permanently. Please see our User Agreement and Professional Community Policies for more information."

    I know they asked me to sign up for premium services, but I didn't. I, Tina Marie (**) **, don't feel I violated any community laws. If I did, why don't they tell me specifically what I did wrong? I feel this is a false character defamation, or someone made false statements about me that is a business with a lot more money than me. But anything I had in my account was the truth, I would enjoy the opportunity to back up the false accusations of community violation with the truth. I did not email anyone, message, or post anything. I had a couple featured documents with information that was the truth. My degrees were the truth. LinkedIn cannot provide me with justification FACTS about why my account was closed.

    I wake up after getting surgery to apply for jobs on LinkedIn and notice the functions were off so I go to my iPad and phone and same. I alert customer service and they suspend my account saying it’s a bug. They don’t fix it.

    I kept getting nuisance contacts through LinkedIn so I discontinued my membership over 10 years ago. But I am STILL being contacted by many people who found my information on LinkedIn because I am supposedly still active. I have tried to contact LinkedIn to be removed but the only way to contact them is to log on. When I try to do so, the response is that there is no account associated with my email and I have not found another way to contact them. So I'm on their list forever???

    I have no idea how but I was charged for I'm not sure what. I’m not a premium member but was charged anyway. When reaching out to the slowest customer service through email with no help. It’s a ripoff!

    LinkedIn is one of those vulture companies who will make it impossible for customers to get any assistance, let alone refund. Be careful with their free trial offer. If you miss to cancel on time, good luck on getting any type of support. No chat, email or phone number available on the website or app to assist with concerns. Not worth the hassle nor the money you will be losing.

    I found 3 complete barriers in a company's on-Linkedin job application. Each time the webpage provided no way of answering the company's question yet demanded that I do so. Linkedin provided no way of reporting those flaws. Yet I continued to get email reminders from Linkedin to complete my application. These continued until long after the company stopped accepting applications. The company name was Exarca.

    I am about to sue LinkedIn. I have apparently violated LinkedIn policies because I called someone an idiot because he claimed that the Ukrainian war is because of narcissist clown Volodymyr Zelensky. I told him that he has absolutely no clue about Ukraine and their people, and he is an idiot claiming something like that. I got locked out of LinkedIn and now they don't even allow me to delete my account and all my data. They just keep telling me that I have violated their policies. I know that, but the way they are handling this issue is exactly why I don’t want to hear about LinkedIn anymore and want all my data to be deleted and my account closed. They just simply ignore all my requests. This is a violation of my rights on a big scale! I never benefited from LinkedIn ever at all, it's a total waste of time. This people are more saint than pope himself, at least they think they are, but they are nothing but government and Microsoft puppies!

    Linkedin may be the worst social site around. Why you might ask would I say this? Let's look at what I see since they were acquired by Microsoft Corp., a company with poorly made products and terrible technology. They are cheap and get infected constantly. They have the worst support of any company online today, and most people don't use their programming language anymore, with only 7.7% of sites using it. Finally, most people prefer stability, and Microsoft Corp. is far from that.

    So they purchased LinkedIn, and things started breaking that shouldn't. Our posts have disappeared, yet our competitors are still working as a developer; that shouldn't be the case as these are all controllers. I'm guessing the people at Microsoft don't understand PHP. They charge a ridiculously high fee for the premium account and yet give you nothing for it. Their adverting costs are three to four times that of Facebook, and they are ten times smaller than Facebook. They think they are worth it, but I tried to advertise, and for $500, I received nothing. I ran an ad on Facebook and received a 7 percent response.

    Everything about Linkedin is terrible. It is just another Facebook app. What once was a professional site has turned into how many likes or comments I can get. Microsft has destroyed this company in a short time, just like everything else they touch. Like their founder, they are brain dead and haven't a clue. Yeah, they believe that he is brilliant because Bill Gates invented this MANY years ago. But, no, it means he did it first, and now they are dead last with everything today.
