I used LinkedIn for both a personal account and a companyÂ page, so one of the first things that I do after meeting a new person and receiving their business card is to connect with them on LinkedIn. Yesterday I met Kate Johnson from LegalShield, and sent her a request to connect which she did. When I used LinkedIn and searched for her profile this morning, I expected the status to say that we were connected however I saw the familiar blue Connect button still displayed indicating that we weren’t connected yet.
Looking at the fine print under the Relationship tab it does indeed say that we were connected on 4/21/2015, but the bug persists in showing the blue Connect button. So even high-tech companies like LinkedIn have bugs in their cloud-based software as a service.
I recommend that you consider using LinkedIn as a way to showcase both your own professional accomplishments and those of your company also. Even with the occasional bug LinkedIn is still quite a useful networking tool that builds awareness for both you and your company.
