LinkedIn A Professional Networking tool Unprofessionally Designed & Developed…! Asking Why? Read.

I admit I am using LinkedIn for almost last 6 to 7 Years. But lately I am getting irritated while signing in to LinkedIn even when trying to read messages or sending messages or trying to posting on LinkedIn Groups.

I will list down few things here which will explain why I am saying so.

First foremost irritating thing i.e. Code deployed & Implemented
Whenever I try to sign in to LinkedIn page resets to public home page or to sign in page even if I enter write username with right password combination.
Page resets again & again without any error message. Asking why? Poor code deployed by LinkedIn itself.

Second thing it’s poor caching
LinkedIn cache pages that’s why I have to refresh LinkedIn member home every time when I read message or see notification. New message & New activity notifications doesn’t gets dismissed even if you have seen it one second before you have to refresh the page again again to tell LinkedIn code that you have seen the message & seen the notification.

Third Poorly Designed User Interface with Top Black Header Bar with Grey coloured interface is what showcase how (un)enthusiastic & (un)excited they are about their own website. It showcase how they irritate user with no use of branding in interface deployed on online website.

Even with this all errors & glitches in LinkedIn source code & website, LinkedIn still charges yearly more than 10,000/- Indian rupees to have professional paid account. Real bad strategy to have when your code is ugly & poorly thought & implemented. Practically speaking 10,000/- INR is somebody’s two months cumulative salary here in India.

Please wake up LinkedIn before it’s too late & you will certainly lost your every signed in member forever.

Hope you get my point.

Thanks & Regards
