LinkedIn initially rejected two bug reports from me. The first was fixed. For the second one they just deleted a post I couldn't access when logged in. Now I want to build an alternative. Every account can have a resume, post jobs, share stuff with mentions and private messages.
I've always hated Linkedin. It feels bloated and spammy. Angellist and StackOverflow have been much more convenient to find companies that are a good fit for me and vice versa. Looking forward to see what you come up with. Good luck!
I just recently found a job through Linkedin. Angellist was a bust. i didn't really try on stackoverflow. was it easy to find companies by location?
I have an old account on there and I never saw it really active. Another good "alternative" social site (but centralized and proprietary) is Okuna, it's in a private beta right now but it's nice and glossy like Facebook without the user predation+deception. Sort of like Reddit but without the near-psychotic userbase.
An ActivityPub federated alternatives ?
I haven't used linkedIn in years. Left tired of all the spam tactics employed. It also didn't help their efforts of trying to make of it another engagement seeking platform. Regardless, an alternative would be very welcome. (So many words just to say 'go for it')
I left LinkedIn because they said it was full of security leaks. Go for it.
I'm not on LinkedIn but I'll gladly join an alternative.
I got a domain for the project. It can be abbreviated as HR.
