This is great and all. but I'd just like their system to work. I am continuously getting email that "John Smith" is still awaiting my invitation. But when I log into the app or the web page, it says "No Invitations" perhaps they should straighten their DB out first, then make improvements.
Outside of that, the two big things they need to deal with are the "Message Streams" which put everything from colleague achievements, work anniversaries, birthdays, and endorsements all on a splash screen. I do not want 41 of my contacts saying "Happy Birthday" when I do not work for them and have only contacted them for professional assistance. Secondly, those endorsements are a joke. The "so-and-so has endorsed you for 'data center'." means absolutely nothing. and the person who endorsed me? Never worked with me professionally. so how would they know?
The app is good for networking professionals and keeping contacts with people I have worked with but don't want to "friend on facebook" because I just want to know if I can reach out to someone for electroplating questions or SQL bench-marking with my cluster and SAN. Not to wish them a happy birthday.
