When I first joined LinkedIn I had support help me consolidate two accounts and that wasn’t an issue. Then because I debated some racists and debunked their lies, LinkedIn decided I was the guilty party and suspended my account. They demanded a copy of my ID front and back and/or passport. My identity could’ve been verified through my contacts who are high level attorneys, CEOs and even the Chamber of Commerce of which I am a member and LinkedIn sees that. They refused to reinstate my account. They’re racists as revealed by an article in NY Times in 2019!
I then created another account and rebuilt my profile. After a while LinkedIn seeing I was getting a lot of traction to my posts restricted my account again this time claiming I had two accounts AND I NEEDED to provide a passport or ID again! These people are insane! Suddenly my credit report warned that my email address was compromised and was found on the dark web! Guess who did this? Yes, LinkedIn. This company is a racist lying bunch of thieves and you should really avoid it at all cost. It’s no longer the professional platform it once was.
Hello LinkedIn Folks
I am hoping to recover my LinkedIn page that has been scrambled for about two weeks.
The page received a large number of solicitations from “advisors” in a short time, which was followed by a LinkedIn notice to me to not use mass marketing software. I was surprised since I mostly respond to notifications and not initiate them.
At this point I can see that notifications have come in but cannot retrieve them. My profile is gone and I cannot respond to inquiries of positions available or invitations to add to my list or respond to messages or invitations from LinkedIn.
My LinkedIn page is now split between two different emails. When I try to log in the LinkedIn “bot” warns me that there are 99+ people on LinkedIn with my unique name.
Please…I feel LinkedIn is a fabulous is a fantastic resource. I need some help in figuring out how bring the world of LinkedIn and my contacts back together.

I’ve wasted my time for years with Indeed trying to search for jobs, and most of the wasted time is related to having to get through the pile of unrelated jobs thrown at me without any relevance to my job search. It doesn’t matter how deeply I attempt to tweak my search, get rid of unrelated jobs or even supply comments to this company as to why their jobs are irrelevant - they keep on sending jobs that have absolutely no connection to my search criteria. Indeed could apply a significant fix by limiting job results to only those which have the exact match in the job title, but that’s not an option. Why not? Because Indeed gets paid for the number of times a job shows up in a search, not whether it has no relevance. “Failed algorithms which waste job seekers time” - I suspect that this is the vision statement for Indeed. I depend on LinkedIn instead, and so should everyone else: Same jobs, but less wasted time and effort.
This platform is no longer useful for finding a job. The app does all of what it can to keep the user locked in to the feed section. If I’m reviewing a job and my screen lock becomes active (or view something off of the app), when I return to the app, I am immediately taken to my feed. When I go back to the job section, the job I was reviewing is no longer visible. I’m sure it’s not deleted. It’s just hard to tell which one I was viewing, especially if you’re searching for similar jobs. It’s like as soon as you put your phone down, you lose place in line. It creates nothing but wasted time.
For anyone who has experienced a layoff, unemployment is a lot of work and it can easily wear you out. The last thing a person needs is a tool that slows them down. Of course a person can look elsewhere for jobs but why even have a job section if it has basic flaws.
There is plenty to like, messaging, networking, news feed, posting your resume. But I will cut to the chase.
As a research tool, this app is worthless. Anytime I am reading something and need to leave the app and access notes, or a search engine, for example, when I come back to the LI app, it automatically refreshes, and I lose the article I was reading. No amount of searching has ever let me find it again. If I forget to save the article, it is lost and the project I was framing/working on is also lost.
-Don’t automatically refresh the page when you leave the app open in the background. Refresh manually (drag and hold down) or refresh when you open the app new.
-Provide a reading history to go back to where you left off.
LI is supposed to be much more than a news feed, right? As a research tool, it is currently lacking.
Be aware! You can't speak to no one! There's No Phone Number on LinkedIn website. They will screw you!
When I posted a job on Linkedin was because it said it was FREE, I didn't know you guys were going to charge my card with 3 payments in less than 2 months for a total of 1,276.70 without authorizing it. The worst part is that I only got 4 resumes from your website after posting a Job... I want my money back, this is crazy I'm just a small company.
Out of the 27 applicants only 4 of them were in the McKinney area and only had one interview, the rest were in the Dallas area, that's 45 minutes to an hour away from where my company is located. This is ridiculous and so upsetting to me, it makes me sick to my stomach that I waisted $1200 on nothing.
I have an active Premium subscription with LinkedIn, was charged $69.99 for LinkedIn through the App Store, and no Premium services have been activated. It’s like I never signed up because the “Try Premium Free” link still appears. Upon clicking it, it says unable to process and to contact support. No one can fix my issue, I’m halfway through a paid month, and not receiving the service. I am so frustrated. They keep telling me to take it up with Apple when I’ve sent them screenshots proving I have an active paid subscription with LinkedIn. It shows the active subscription in my App Store and my credit card assigned to the App Store has been charged for a full month. I just want what I’m paying for.
LinkedIn via iTunes has less capabilities than buying online. It is fine to download the free app, but if you plan to upgrade, ONLY buy that or upgrade to Premium on LinkedIn’s website via your account settings.
You can’t buy additional services in Premium if you bought via Apple. The app is limited. They will make you cancel and re-subscribe via LinkedIn and the two companies do not talk.
So, it becomes a customer service nightmare to make things right. Save time and a huge headache by NOT upgrading to Premium via the App.
People need more control over their Data. This is why I wrote my last review, as follows.
I’m very disappointed that I am not able to remove my resume from LinkedIn online. Is it useful to let the world find out who I am and where I live, or who I have worked for and with, or other personal information about me? I’m now retired. What do I need my resume online for, identity theft? Thanks. If my data gets into the wrong hands, who would be responsible? Please give us more control over our data - it belongs to us!
Anyone with pronouns gets automatically removed from connections, thanks for making it easy to identify the mentally challenged. Random accounts posting pictures of kids who beat cancer that they have absolutely zero affiliation with just for likes…real quality algorithm there LinkedIn.
If you want to be spammed by bot recruiter messages and need another outlet to listen to blacks complain about how held back they are despite having every advantage possible in the corporate environment then this is the app for you.
