All it has is opinions that aren't backed up by any facts. First, most companies I've worked for don't even block Facebook, and even if they do the website will probably be some thing like or something to further distinguish itself from your personal account. Second, Linkden was hacked, so I don't know how "secure" it is. Third, Linkden is not a more professional looking site than Facebook, and the fact that people shove themselves into your circle or whatever steared me away from Linkden long ago. Hardly anyone I know under the age of 30 uses it unless they're foreign or looking for a new job. I doubt Facebook will have a problem with market penetration like the author of the linked article thinks they will.

Comment: The UK doesn't have freedom of speech (Score 5, Informative) 316

A lot of people are going to complain about the freedom of speech or expression, but that's a pretty American thing. Most countries have limited freedoms of speech, the UK included. I wish more countries had absolutely protected speech, but somehow things that are "offensive" to any ONE person are vilified. I'm sure a lot of people would have wanted to censor MLK Jr. and others, it's not just terrorists and nazi's that use freedom from opression to get their points heard. It seems a lot of people forget that.

Exactly, I imagine someone with a large vehicle like a suburban would be able to pull this off. $5.00, 6 people, makes about $30 each trip, hopefully shuttles people out or has some sort of rounds they can do and bam, they're making between $30-$60 an hour. Or like myself I drive to work, roughly 45min. I've carpooled with friends before, but I could easily do it with strangers if I was making somewhere around $5-$15 each way that would more than pay for gas.

If I hadn't made a comment on this post before I would upvote this comment. You're right, a super highmileage car should have less value to insure, but that also means you lied about how much you drive it and your insurance wasn't calculated for someone that drives to the moon for work.
