Years ago I must have done something to enter the LinkedIn site. I really do not recall what or where or when. I honestly do not recall "LinkedIn". But I get numerous emails from LinkedIn telling me that folks want to join or link or whatever.
The trouble is, I went on a couple of months ago to see what the hullaballoo was about, and I could not even retrieve my account. In fact, I had no idea what my LinkedIn name was, so forget about any potential password. It was like LinkedIn was sending me emails and I had no idea - NO IDEA at all, what they were on about.
And you know what? It's still the same situation today, July 2nd, 2014. I cannot access LinkedIn, (well), and that I am self-employed with a fairly obscure job, I am not seeing how this thing, this site, this whatever, can aid me in my professional life.
So: for those of you who are irritated that I have not joined you on LinkedIn...
It's because I have no clue what's going on. And yes: this may nip me in the rear, or it may simply sail west/south/north/east of me in the future, and I will be done with it.
