LinkedIn has long tried to be the professional’s answer to Facebook and Twitter. However, they’ve never quite gotten the traction that other social networks have. That’s because as sure as the sun will rise, people are annoyed by it. Including, apparently, Gladiator actor, Russell Crowe.
This past Friday he tweeted…
There definitely should be a piss off option for LinkedIn requests
— Russell Crowe (@russellcrowe) August 10, 2018
Which, of course, had people asking this question…
Do you really use LinkedIn?
— DB Cooper (@JP_Stone) August 10, 2018
why on earth would Russell Crowe need to use LinkedIn https://t.co/1TVsxhhRXp

Wait you’re on LinkedIn?

Others empathized with his complaint…
LinkedIn is going to keep you informed &keep inviting you EVEN IF you are not in.
If any of your friends / business partners, anybody who has your e-mail, twitter, facebook, whatever contact &allowed “their” LinkedIn have a peek in their contact list, LI will spam you ..forever.

I absolutely agree! Especially because I am not even at LinkedIn and still get requests and reminders

While others mused on what his ‘skills’ would be…

Search him as Gladiator @ Roman Empire. Has experience in commanding armies of the North.

We think that Russell Crowe would have one thing to say to that…
