Reid Hoffman – Privacy is for old people
In case you have no idea, who Reid Hoffman is, well, he is the founder of LinkedIn.
Now LinkedIn is the world’s largest professional network used by firms and HR departments worldwide, and in this area there should be great interest in privacy. But after seeing their User Agreement things start to make sense. Did LinkedIn ever asked your permission to sell your information to recruiters and HR departments? I think not. So, don’t be concerned about LinkedIn selling your job-hunting information to advertisers or to your current colleagues or why not your current boss: Privacy is for old people.
