Last week, LinkedIn ran a poll asking their users what’s most annoying to them while using the platform. The survey was made right after LinkedIn updates its fake account detection and no-politics button. As the survey ended, LinkedIn reports what’s most annoying to its users.
Here are the top 4 most annoying things about LinkedIn.
- Around 22% of LinkedIn users are annoyed with off-topic posts.
- Around 23% of LinkedIn users are annoyed with irrelevant notifications.
- Around 25% of LinkedIn users are annoyed with spammers and scammers.
- Around 30% of LinkedIn users are annoyed with unwanted messages.
The results are similar to a recent poll made by Social Media Today. According to LinkedIn users, the most annoying unwanted messages are commonly dating invitations and product pitches.
LinkedIn reports what’s most annoying to its users on 22 February 2022.
Implications for Marketers:
Knowing the most annoying things among LinkedIn users can help marketers rethink their strategy on LinkedIn. It probably indicates using LinkedIn’s Sponsored In-Mail creatively among brands. Better yet, it might be better to target LinkedIn professionals by posting valuable content on feeds instead of DM marketing.
