Social media platform can be dangerous to businesses. Because somewhere, sometime and someone is going to create an anonymous profile on these platform that tells people they are one of you. The worst part of all is, these plaforms allow them to do it freely without your approval. We recently found out that we have a "new" C.E.O we had never met, not even our director knew who this person is.
This profile (Levi Davis) was created and was there without our notice till recently we start looking at our business page. Davis Materialworks' business page created in linkedin long ago and there are quite a number of changes to the page as they wipe out our done up page after they change management and revamped their platform.
Heres some history we found online about Linkedin
- Linkedin via Wikipedia
- Timeline of Linkedin via Wikipedia
- Infographic of Linkedin via officetimeline.com
- Who owns Linkedin
- Why "they" buy Linkedin
Now back to our issue. Who is Levi Davis?
- We have no idea
- We don't even know who he or she is in person
Look like social media platforms, behave the same afterall. They will always tell you issue encounter was not created by them on their platform, you will be the one to face it because you use it and your suggestion will only be their consideration to fix the issue when they are free as they are always very busy! And yes, this is a loophole / grey area. Users can link themselves to company with any position on Linkedin without approval and the page admin will have hard time removing them.
