Why You Should Delete Your LinkedIn Account

A few years ago I was coaching a very successful young attorney about how to better use her LinkedIn account. As she scanned her LinkedIn inbox, she noticed that a message from a New York Times reporter. This reporter was looking for a comment on a major story about international trade, her specialty. The problem? The message was months old, and she was just now seeing it. My advice to her was this: delete your account.

Should everyone have a strong presence on social media? The answer is no. Of course, there are powerful reasons to have and maintain an online profile, but I've noticed some areas where social media usage becomes a detriment instead of a value for professionals. No matter how you choose to use your account, it's a good idea to take a look in the mirror and decide if you have the bandwidth to keep up with your account. If not, your LinkedIn account could be doing more harm than good for your business. If you fall into any of the following three categories, it may be time to consider whether to delete your account:

 (1) You Won't Commit to Maintaining Your Account

In the first example I shared, the successful young attorney created an account, but had turned off email notifications and never checked the account. It was as if she built a brand new beautiful mailbox, with a tube connected that dropped all the letters she received right into the ocean. If you don't have the time to and check it on a regular basis, it's not worth having the account. It's difficult to maintain real relationships unless you make it a priority to interact regularly with them.

Katrina Najm, Senior Manager, External Communications at PwC recommends cultivating a relationship-based approach with LinkedIn connections. She says: "executives I've worked with have said they've seen success when they simply share an article with a client or prospective client saying "thought you'd enjoy this". It's worked wonders for relationship-building and has helped with their brand." Adding value while checking in every once in a while is a great way to maintain relationships.

How to hide from the AI surveillance state with a color printout

AI-powered video technology is becoming ubiquitous, tracking our faces and bodies through stores, offices, and public spaces. In some countries the technology constitutes a powerful new layer of policing and government surveillance.

Fortunately, as some researchers from the Belgian university KU Leuven  have just shown, you can often hide from an AI video system with the aid of a simple color printout.

Who said that? The researchers showed that the image they designed can hide a whole person from an AI-powered computer-vision system. They demonstrated it on a popular open-source object recognition system called YoLo(v2).

Hide and seek: The trick could conceivably let crooks hide from security cameras, or offer dissidents a way to dodge government scrutiny. “What our work proves is that it is possible to bypass camera surveillance systems using adversarial patches,” says Wiebe Van Ranst, one of the authors.

Get lost: Van Ranst says it shouldn’t be too hard to adapt the approach to off-the-shelf video surveillance systems. “At the moment we also need to know which detector is in use. What we’d like to do in the future is generate a patch that works on multiple detectors at the same time,” he told MIT Technology Review. “If this works, chances are high that the patch will also work on the detector that is in use in the surveillance system.”

Inside the room where Facebook decides what 2.3bn people can and can't say

It’s around 9:30am at Facebook’s headquarters in Menlo Park, California, and things are getting heated. Or at least as heated as they ever seem to get in this land of free snacks and bright posters. The subject is nudity, and specifically female nipples: who should be allowed to show them? Should they be hidden from children? And what kind of backlash could these decisions provoke? 

One employee, dialing in from Dublin, proposes making an exception to Facebook’s no-nipples policy for indigenous peoples whose traditional clothing leaves their chests uncovered. But colleagues immediately raise doubts, objecting that this could single out non-white people and questioning the wisdom of Facebook deciding...
