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!

On 8th May, 2023 morning, I suddenly wasn't able to login to my existing LinkedIn account. Even I cannot reset my password, as I am not getting the email with the code sent by LinkedIn. I cannot login on my phone or through browser on the laptop. I raised a complaint with LinkedIn on 8th May '23 and till now there is no update. This is a case of identity theft. My entire data is missing from LinkedIn and these people cannot even trace the account. I need help. My data privacy is at stake.

    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.

    I could have reviewed any of them-They are all insufficient in the information provided to the job searcher. They all put the necessary information towards the bottom of the listing, so you waste your time. They could all put the "key" words right at the top, or in the title. I chose to review LI, because I expected better results & responses from the recruiters, but that is not true. It would be nice if the job board sites had strict requirements for the HR people submitting the job descriptions

    Big company and large networks. Provides employee and employer (hiring) professional history and background. High profile employers and colleges can reach you in future by looking at your current profile.

    I have been in the executive search business for over 10 years and the CEO of two firms with greater than 10 employees at each. Our new Linkedin sales representative is rude, rigid and does not have a problem solving mentality. His supervisor was worse, not willing to even speak to us. The supervisor sent a curt rude message basically saying take it or leave it. Our last LI sales representative was incredible--warm, helpful, etc. Linkedin is clearly now snubbing their nose at small businesses.

    Awful site. Avoid LinkedIn at all costs. Absolutely Disgraceful. You are able to post jobs on there for free. They removed my profile with no evidence provided and I am unable to get it back. I contacted them on Twitter and they have sent me a link to fill in but I doubt the account will be re activated. There appears to be a number of job posted on the platform which are non existent. I received false negative feedback from said companies and when I questioned them about their lies they refuse to reply back to my emails.

    I posted my experience on linkedin and I believe for that reason they removed my account because these companies got exposed and are unable to provide actual evidence in turn they reported me to LinkedIn. I also have a employment tribunal case against Birmingham City University for unfair dismissal and Racial discrimination. Linkedin have been unfair and have treated me differently with no evidence provided. Is it due to me being a Bangladeshi Muslim? Have you got issues with my religious belief and skin colour? What is your issue? Worst platform ever.
