To be blunt, there seems to have been an abundance of crap appearing on LinkedIn over the past year.
It doesn’t take much of a scroll to discover motivational stories, rants and strange haiku style posts detailing something that most likely never happened!
These posts typically were originally created by the great influencers of our time, Branson, Weiner and the er…CTO of the DailyMail Online. It seems like they have now trickled down to middle managers running auto-garages in Swindon.
So why are these posts now so popular? Unfortunately (again, to be blunt) LinkedIn is boring! Many businesses aren’t sure how to share engaging content on the platform. Therefore, within the sea of work anniversaries and generic copy/paste news articles, users are of course going to be distracted and entertained by a “broem” or cringey unprofessional post.
However, the positive spin is that we have created a Twitter account to celebrate the narcissism, didn’t happens and broetry on the platform. Check it out here. If you have anything to add, send us a screenshot via Twitter or email us.
