You’re an All Star! But that’s all you’ll ever be….
LinkedIn is a social networking site designed specifically for the business community. The goal of the site is to allow registered members to establish and document networks of people they know and trust professionally. Every profile has their own rating system…..but is there a hidden message in this system?…. Lets look at this design.
There are 5 levels of LinkedIn ‘Profile Strength’:
(5) All Star
You achieve ‘All Star’ status by completing all sections of your Profile and by having Recommendations (minimum 2), Connections (minimum 50) and (at least 25) Endorsements…..but the visuals raise a few questions….
It looks like there is still room for improvement? Why isn’t my LinkedIn blue bubble full? Why isn’t it a complete circle to show that you are at 100%?
Perhaps LinkedIn believes that only God is perfect? Could LinkedIn be subtly suggesting that your profile may come close to complete but there’s always room for improvement? Maybe it’s because they always want you to update your profile, add as many connections as you can, always improve your life via career wise because in the world of jobs there’s never an end to what you can learn or achieve?
