Is It Okay To Post Engagement Pictures On LinkedIn? by pocohantas(f): 10:15pm On Jun 21
LinkedIn is the social network for job seekers, professionals, and businesses. A platform to build your network, find business contacts and connect with recruiters...

In the past the competition was who had the baddest “CV” and work experience. In fact, a friend said the folks on LinkedIn can make you feel your life is useless, lol, but a lot has changed. Our career people are now relaxing the professional platform to accommodate nonprofessional events.

Recently, four people in my circle have complained of the trend of posting engagement pictures on LinkedIn. One said he keeps seeing “and she said yes”. This is a platform that wasn’t designed for lovey dovey, we have Instagram for that already. I think anywhere man and woman dey, love must follow. At least you can meet career bae there ba?

What do you think?

I stopped opening LinkedIn cos of the "tensioning" going on in that cyberspace. Gosh, that place was too monotonous for my liking. However now, people have started posting things about Testimonies, birthdays, weddings etc.

Back to the main question, Love can be found anywhere. So if someone meets Career bae from LinkedIn, sure why not post engagement pictures? After all, it's still part of social media.

Don’t you think it will turn LinkedIn to another Instagram? Someone sat and realized we didn’t have a platform that unites jobseekers and recruiters. Came up with LinkedIn, but they are turning it to BellaNaijaWeddings.

Hmmm I don't think the sole purpose of creating LinkedIn is being defeated, some small "BellaNaijaWedding" won't hurt na cheesy grin tongue.

No people on earth abuse LinkedIn like Nigerians.

We post burial, we post herdsmen news we post Tonto Dike and all other scaliwats we have as celebrities there.

It is a business networking platform. not your regular social media.

Have you looked at the profile of Nigerians on LinkedIn. You will see Bss, MSC, FCS, MSS, DSS, POS. everything.

Top CEOs will just put their names.

Nigerians carry their fake life go linkedin

Please don't post anything that is not business related there

LinkedIn is for career progress, pls don't turn LinkedIn to Instagram and Snapchat. If you want to post love, my brother kindly go to your Facebook page to post.

Do you think your engagement pictures will help you get better job, advance your career?

LinkedIn is not just your normal social media

Apart from chronic attention seeking I don't get why Facebook, Twitter, tikoto and the rest are not enough for your social stuff

LinkedIn is a professional social media site.

Leave those things for Facebook , TikTok, Instragram etc.

No, not at all. We've been experiencing this Nonsense on the platform quite a time Now.

They're bastardizing it to the extent that, birthdays, wedding post, wooing and sort flood it.

It's a career platform and Should remain as Such.

Infact, I expect LinkedIn management to sanction whoever tries making it like Facebook. What Nonsense

As long as it isn’t against the policy of LinkedIn..
It’s nobody’s business.
If you don’t link it, move on.

In a country full of unemployment the last thing job seekers need is for Linkedin to be filled with small minds and irrelevant stuffs. There's Instagram for that. Let professionals be professional.

Lol that LinkedIn that people usually toast ladies in inbox. As long as it’s a social media platform, people will definitely start posting what they want. But personally I don’t think people should start posting weddings and engagement there,except both of them met on LinkedIn and got married afterwards.

LinkedIn gradually turning into Instagram and Facebook.

Unnecessary show-off and lies. Everyone is a motivational speaker, CEO, Founder on LinkedIn but in real life, active job seekers.

I'll stop here.
