Presumptuous LinkedIn


Imagine my surprise when I recently received this email from LinkedIn.

Sandra, we noticed you haven’t visited Job Skills for Future Library Careers lately. To help keep your email tidy, we’ve unsubscribed you from this group’s digests – we hope this suits you better!

I feel very violated. This is akin to my teenage years with Mom taking the liberty to clean my room & throwing out “junk” because she thinks she’s helping keep things “tidy”.

Well LinkedIn, it does not suit me better and I prefer email digest because I’m too busy to be present and active on Linkedin everyday.

So in the future, if you please, don’t be so presumptuous.
