Useless Feed
by NefariousAryq on 2020/11/30 15:36
The feed is absolutely useless anymore due to LinkedIn refusing to let us sort by date. Algorithmic feeds are B.S. Right now my top post is 2 weeks old. My top five are all greater than 5 days old. Just absolutely completely useless. I want to see what’s new NOW. Not some post from 2 weeks ago I’ve already seen. Pathetic.
Last update make the app loading to be slower
by Rui55932 on 2020/11/30 07:21
App upload is now so slow on my iphone6 Previous versions was much much faster
Misleading
by balto!! on 2020/11/28 21:29
Sends you false information via email. Complete waste of time and effort
It’s good...
by hipeopleoftheworld on 2020/11/28 14:21
But crashes. Extremely annoying. I also don’t understand why LI made “stories” like Instagram. Stop pushing a professional platform towards replicating a social media app. Some of these features are just off-putting.
Home page stuck
by miqch on 2020/11/28 04:34
The linkedin app is not working properly. It stuck (hang)on home page when we open it even the homepage does not open completely. When stuck we cant use any other menu options totally stuck and nothing we can work on it. Kindly resolve this issue

IOS widget feature!
by Antenor Ferreira on 2020/11/26 20:38
It would be amazing if the app give widget formats for the new ios 14 features! Hope it come soon!
DONE w LI! Can’t update
by shellinsandiego on 2020/11/26 15:20
Wont log me in unless I updateI But the update button wont hilite- guess my perfect iPad is too old or something? No option NOT to update- Ridiculous- I’m done!
No dark mode
by AppsManiac123 on 2020/11/25 02:45
Really hard on the eyes
Display issues make it unusable on any iPhone with a notch.
by RickshawMe on 2020/11/24 12:11
I have now tested the app on iPhone X and iPhone 12 Pro Max. The full UI does not display on these phones and makes navigation impossible. The back arrow is not accessible, meaning I have to fully kill and restart the app just to get out of certain screens. There is no search bar, and no way to get to Settings. How could Microsoft release this app like this?
Dark mode ( mode sombre )
by otheey__ on 2020/11/24 00:57
Veuillez faire un mode sombre pour l’application comme Google et YouTube... merci
UI bug
by Cho847372 on 2020/11/23 17:20
There is a UI bug present in the iPad app for multiple update cycles now, where the job detail title bar overlaps the beginning of the job description.
MUST BE FIXED!!!! PLEASE READ
by gpavlushkin on 2020/11/23 00:18
LinkedIn Team, For such a huge company, in disappointed you don’t compete with Facebook app, or any other social media apps. Please remove the length requirement when doing a post on letters and numbers! Sometimes I want to post something and it makes me shorten and remove a lot of the words. Also, compress the pics to fit into your boxes and offer different layouts for posting pictures on your app! This app is widely used and you guys are skipping up in features and developments on your app!
Yuck!
by Integrity Review on 2020/11/22 21:33
Your name and photo are used in ads (yes, by default). You don’t use this app—it uses you. They’ve tricked you into uploading your private address book (they sell it as an ad targeting feature). Were you that person? Linkedin is ads, upsells, ads, click-bait, more ads, and lame “classes.” Good luck trying to be “in the conversation” when ad-clicks matter most to Microsoft. Update: Your “product” and mobile teams already “took a closer look” and said management is hyper-fixated on “ad engagement.”
Disregard for voiceover access
by Blindstein on 2020/11/22 18:19
The developer responded to this review telling me to contact support, as if it was my fault that I cannot even sign in using my ipad with VoiceOver. When I reached out support had no idea what I was talking about. The LinkedIn service has a long rich history of disregard for blind users. If we can't use the service it is by design, and not due to user incompitence. Original Review If you are a blind voiceover user with an iPad, you’re out of luck with this app, as you cannot even login. If you manage to get past the screen where you type in your username and password, which I can only do by turning off the screen reader, the visual captcha does the work that linked in‘s developers might’ve failed to do with the login screen.
Facebook ruined it
by Mreeves336 on 2020/11/22 16:59
Change it back. No one in society has ever wished that their LinkedIn look like Facebook. We want Facebook to look like Facebook, LinkedIn to look like LinkedIn, and Instagram to look like Instagram. There needs to be a clear distinction and blurring the lines only makes me use LinkedIn list. Especially since the majority of my messages now are people pandering MLM schemes. Worthless.
There is no way to flag a post or comment as misleading or false.
by iOS Engineer on 2020/11/22 15:20
There is no way to flag a post or comment as misleading or false. In these times it is more and more important to stop the spread of outlandish lies on social networks and LinkedIn should not be an exception.
Don’t like being censored and spied on
by hfgurgj on 2020/11/21 23:56
It’s all well and good unless you don’t agree with their agenda
Another scam
by DuppyC on 2020/11/20 16:47
I was very disappointed that linked in operates very similar to many other services that makes it impossible to view your account, impossible to speak with a representative, and impossible to receive any support from linked in. I’ve been on hold for 3 hours with no response. My account was charged $406.90 WITHOUT authorization. I never signed up for a subscription and when I checked my purchase history NOTHING comes up. This is a classic company making it next to impossible to access the information you actually want. These are the tricks of the trade when dealing with services that want your subscription. Linked in may be popular amongst job seekers but please use accordingly. The subscriptions are really traps and come with charges that you most likely don’t want. Best advise: just use another job seeking service.
App Freezes
by annaszakir on 2020/11/20 09:24
Whenever open the LinkedIn app its open but no content shows on a screen and app git freezes, blank screen and touch also not working iam on a very latest iOS and this issue iam facing from last 2,3 months this is second complaint.
This is not for jobs. It’s another social media place.
by 3x disappionted on 2020/11/20 05:02
This gives me suggestions for locations out of Houston. I also entered distance and it gives me jobs more than the miles I set. I don’t need all the ones out of Houston. I need it close to my zip code. I get better suggestions from indeed but they have with the pay and days I’m looking for.
Notification spam
by wolfEXE57 on 2020/11/19 15:47
Deleted the app today because I awoke to 6 messages from this app and then within my 20 min morning wakeup routine i got 3 more all for the same thing. I dont care if BBC is going live, i dont care im never going to watch. I dont care if someone wants to connect(even though when you go into the app nobody wants to connect, its a fake notification to get you to click on the app) 0/10 app seems the developers now have bad intentions

The most useless platform I have ever used
Who needs user feedback?!
by bwow000000 on 2020/11/17 21:55
I couldn’t find anything whatsoever to provide some UI user feedback. Oh well, I guess I’ll just give the app a 2 star review instead. LinkedIn, call me if you want info on a really, really necessary improvement.
Worst
by Ivan702 on 2020/11/17 18:49
Don’t apply to anything using the app. Bombard you with email for 100 different companies.
Business purpose; not Facebook
by fiddler5 on 2020/11/16 08:32
Please do some content moderating. Lately my feed looks like Facebook with posts about people’s political preference, happy anniversary to my wife, prayers, pictures of kids and pets. No recipes yet, but I’m sure that’s next! LinkedIn was a place for business, with business related posts. Could we please get back to that?

by mg07202017 on 2020/11/16 06:50
This App is social App it does not provide real world Jobs this App this App is just there to collect information from People but no Real Jobs is all fake, is like a Facebook social media but under the name Linked all it does is clutters your email!
App is broken
by shah_02 on 2020/11/15 11:20
There are numerous issues on ios. The app is halted most of the time when a video is played. Even if I close the app completely, the sound is still there for a while.
Free 1-year Premium subscription for Veterans
by Kaik_M on 2020/11/14 18:21
I’ve been using this flow to confirm my veteran go status and obtain free 1-year Premium Career subscription for many times. And I am thankful that LinkedIn is giving this opportunity to use their platform to network and grow. Last few weeks I tried multiple times to sign-in with my Troop ID. Every time I would end up with senseless error message. The content of error message is “Error! message missing” Is there any reasonable reason that the creation of support ticket is not include in the app itself? Please address this issue ASAP!
Payment declined

What Jobs?
by SFCOX85 on 2020/11/13 23:58
As a retired military service member let me just say this was a waste of time and energy. Yea there are job posts but good luck getting a response. If you have high degrees in education then go do it. Blue collar workers, don’t waste your time. It’s like Facebook. Social media junk!!! I’ve used this for over 2 years with not 1 not 1 job interview. Not one call back. Just more social media junk. More political b.s. I can bet Linkdin and indeed are the same platform. Junk, junk and more junk. Thanks for wasting my time and selling my information. Whoever made this app is trash with it.
Changing my background - UPDATE
by Bcarney77 on 2020/11/13 11:22
UPDATE: I was able to change my background photo, but I had to do it through the website. The directions to change it on the app were incorrect and new reviewed. I’ve updated my rating to 3 stars. The directions on the app are not aligned with my app views. I’m missing a profile icon, which is wearing the help instructions are directing me to go to change my background. I’ve clicked on every possible section within settings and I’m getting nowhere. I’m able to update my profile photo, but not my background.
Disappointing update
by IMC1782 on 2020/11/11 23:35
UI leaves a lot to be desired. So much white space and poor contrast. Content on pages looks crowded and is hard to differentiate. Navigation Bar at the bottom blends in too much. Grey icons are meh, which basically sums up the UX. I do like the new logo that appears when the app is launched.
Notification problems
by lmaonade on 2020/11/11 10:41
Whenever someone accepts my connection, it doesn’t really notify me even though I have the settings set as such. It’s hard to tell who has accepted, so I end up going on a scavenger hunt trying to figure that out. Somethings off with the app...
I don’t like this site
by AaronWMele on 2020/11/10 21:40
I do not like LinkedIn, I think it’s just as bad as Facebook. It spams me with pages that I don’t want to see and won’t let me block them. It lets me “report abuse”, but won’t let me hide a page that it wants to force on me. The UI has gotten better over the years, but I still really dislike the platform as a whole. I don’t follow any pages, i just have connections. It’s constantly pushing things that my connections “like” on me and won’t allow me to stop it. I want a professional platform, not a propaganda machine.
did you forget to add designers to your team?
by parikhparth23 on 2020/11/10 03:03
i think designers were not part of this update.
Less Notifications
by Mattyrrich on 2020/11/09 22:42
Your notification campaign is desperate and irritating. The only notifications I want are when I’m messaged or for other alerts that I’ve set up. Stop prodding me to connect with other people with your “do you know X person?”. That alone caused me to turn off all notifications. This is a great opportunity for a notification prefs page. If you have one, it’s a great opportunity to make it easier to find. I will only ever use your app when I’m job searching.
Can I post maybe?
by LRODZZ on 2020/11/09 17:55
I rarely am able to post on this app. Makes the process of posting so much harder. My gallery only sometimes loads up but most of the time it never does and this makes everything alot harder. Can you please fix this issue.
Censorship
by ieatassoccassionally on 2020/11/09 17:42
LinkedIn always says it’s not a political platform, but workers at LinkedIn are allowed to create pro liberal and anti conservative news stories.
Better but Not Really
by woodyshauna7 on 2020/11/09 13:52
LinkedIn is so much better than where it came from, but I still know more people that get jobs from search sites.
Do not refresh timeline on rotation of iPad
by i.generic on 2020/11/08 21:30
Why does the app scroll to the top of the timeline when I rotate my iPad to landscape or portrait mode? It happens in the timeline and als when I open a post, rotate the iPad to watch a video and then return to the timeline.

Simple feature to add
by Hamanhig on 2020/11/08 09:19
Hi Guys, Can you please add a simple feature to mark jobs that I’ve already applied for on an external site in the same way you have it to “easy apply” job posts. It will be even better to add a filter to the search. Thanks!!
Great app but...
by Bassguitar 13 on 2020/11/08 07:25
This has turned into my most used app out of all of the other social media apps that I own. The level of networking through this app has been a catalyst to my success. I just wish there were a dark mode for the app that way many users like myself can stay on the app longer !
Dark Mode
by pittsburgh lover on 2020/11/07 16:31
App works well, but please add dark mode!! Then it’s 5 stars!
Bad User Interface
by JaredTraum on 2020/11/07 12:24
The latest update has turned everything white. There is no color separation so everything blends into each other. Very difficult to use because you can’t tell what is where. Terrible experience.
Redesign
by foulplay2 on 2020/11/07 04:15
Great work devs and designers, the new redesign looks fantastic and modern!

Why did my LinkedIn get so bright white and disregard Dark Mode all of the sudden? Practically unbearable.
Pay grade should be required
by semicollllin on 2020/11/06 04:05
I display all of my career and education history but employers aren’t required to show a pay grade. How do I know if it’s worth it to even apply?
Job Posting Description Bug
by ExInfoPro on 2020/11/06 02:15
Uninstalling the app and reinstalling it didn’t work for me. There is a bug in the IOS version of this UI. The beginning of the job description is covered up by an overlay. So, you can only read the bottom portion of it. This needs to be fixed immediate.
No dark mode after a year
by Iorveth45678 on 2020/11/06 02:11
Instead, these idiots decided to take away the only color and make the UI blindingly white.

Needs dark mode badly
by FTW28 on 2020/11/05 16:17
The app is good but I literally never use it at night because my entire phone interface and all third party apps are in dark mode, except for LinkedIn. When I open it, it blinds me and I immediately close it and move onto something else.
Connections issue.
by OZ1905 on 2020/11/05 05:17
How many times do I have to tap and click on an people you might know people for them to stop coming back up. Do I have to block them just to see new people on that list. This is an issue on the app and on the desktop website.
Green in UI?

Please change this it looks absolutely terrible
Mr Meyer
by Uniben2012 on 2020/11/04 03:53
It Is a good app but was only able to use for a week and I was restricted for no reason please I will love to know the rule and regulations guiding the use of this app and I will be glad if I can get my account back
Accept all button
by Cumpter geek on 2020/11/04 03:17
Please bring the accept all button at least for the invitations. Some people have other 100 and my fingers are tired of pressing the accept button.. if you guys do it would be a life safer!! Thank you!!
Story feature
by Asma y on 2020/11/03 18:08
Hello, I cannot upload the story feature on videos longer than 20 seconds, would be great if we can download the video of more than 2” seconds and then it can split it to different story posts just like Instagram. Thanks,

I can’t imagine a better set up for top of the barrel CEOs . Thought I did not need social media however LinkedIn changed my mind about that
Great! - One annoyance
by CrabsJoeShack on 2020/11/03 09:44
Good app, helps keep in touch with past and present co-workers and networking for current and future solutions. One annoyance - Irritating to have a job open, have to change apps for a time and come back to LinkedIn home page. Just stay where I was last if I don’t close the app please.
Why don’t open my account?

Can you help me?
False notifications
by snam23 on 2020/11/01 19:27
This is a review for the app itself. It gives me false notifications. There will be a red number on the icon indicating I have new notifications. However, when I open the app, I have no new notifications. Social networking apps with notifications features are not new. I don’t know why LinkedIn can’t figure this out. I first noticed this at the beginning of the 2020. After several updates, it is October 2020 and this issue is still not fixed.
Was business oriented, has become political grandstanding platform
by Mb_2200 on 2020/11/01 18:02
It’s getting so I can no longer read my feed without cringing due to how LinkedIn is allowing politically motivated messaging to take over the platform
Harassment
by kdyulnen on 2020/11/01 16:55
Just another type of Facebook stealing your personal data and pimping you out. Constantly bothered by notifications. I love how they are taking advantage of job seekers. I’ve found jobs quicker with less bothersome apps.
New update annoyances.
by Chllds Play on 2020/10/30 19:16
While the fresh look is nice, they moved buttons around such as the apply for no apparent reason. Now on the opposite side. Why?
Can’t block people

Notifications Issue
by BetaStat on 2020/10/30 10:15
Will get a push notification on the app symbol, but upon opening the app itself, no notifications are apparent. You have to go hunting through the app menus and play hide n seek. Was it a message? A notification? Check my profile?? Who knows. It takes 3 or 4 random menu selections to make the push notification go away on the phone. App also has some other buggy issues, like getting stuck on a page or menu within the app. Overall great work. Notification paths need some tending to.

Linkedin allowing inappropriate messaging
by dclionva on 2020/10/28 19:07
A number of my female colleagues have reported to Linkedin inappropriate messages from men on their platform. Nothing has been done after reporting by several employees and harassment continues on their platform by the said men
Swipe keyboard not working well with the app
by Rajnishkr on 2020/10/28 15:50
The default iOS swipe keyboard is not working well with the app. I tried it while commenting on a post, but after aword, it doesn’t type the next word using the swipe action. You have to type individual characters for forming sentences.
How can an app in 2020 not offer rotation support?
by Kentucky Windage 2015 on 2020/10/28 01:09
App is ok as far as it goes, but it baffles me why the devs do not support rotation. Sometimes the vertical orientation cuts off parts of words in a headline, profile, etc. Rather than clicking on useless link, I often rotate my phone on other apps/websites to get more in and decide whether to click the link. But not in this app. (Also not on the website, so it’s a conscious decision by LinkedIn.) I installed the app because a couple features weren’t available on the website.
App became really ugly
by Sdfhhvd on 2020/10/27 17:11
This app used to look really nice. Recently, it was updated to be super ugly to the point where I never want to look at it again. Normally, I can tolerate apps changing their appearance, but LinkedIn now looks like it was designed in the 90s
It’s 2020 and the keyboard interaction is broken
by Aidan F on 2020/10/25 04:39
When you’re viewing comments for a post, the keyboard remains open, blocking most of the view. Even when you scroll the comments down, the keyboard remains open.
Garbage
by Eezey-E on 2020/10/25 02:48
App never works properly. Keeps giving notification about no internet connection.
Please dark mode.
by anbonney on 2020/10/24 23:34
Dark mode. Please.
The app can be so much better
by Bism@rk on 2020/10/24 18:32
For a company like LinkedIn the app's user experience is subpar. The in-app browser is slow, rendering has UI issues. Most used buttons are in wrong place. The entire experience shows lack of attention to detail. Please look at apps like Insta, FB, tiktok, slack etc and overhaul your complete UX. I feel like I'm using an app from 2000s.
Update
by Momo_boo on 2020/10/24 16:09
I honestly dislike the new update, the app is a total mess....
Access

Google
by Nicknames!!! on 2020/10/23 21:50
every time I get a request to except a contact, it takes me to google and then it asked me if I will allow LinkedIn to access and possibly permanently delete my contacts. When I accept the request through my iCloud account I don’t have this problem. I don’t like going through Google and I choose Safari as my browser so why does this keep happening? I have a Gmail account only because my past broker required it. Otherwise it’s way easier to use linked in with iCloud.
Mail system is poorly thought out/executed
by AK2771167 on 2020/10/23 14:41
LinkedIn’s inbox is terrible it’s structured like text messaging and it doesn’t work effectively for tracking and follow up. Worse sometimes it shows new/unread mail when there is none, sometimes read mail doesn’t show read.

How about dark mode?

New logo but still no dark mode for LinkedIn in this day and age?
Linked In App

Thank you for informing me by email of people I know on Linked In. I did have the Linked In app, but deleted it, because it takes up too much memory. I am retired and just have a part-time job, so have no need at this time to follow every single comment. Now you won’t let me in to even accept a new request Disappointed in Linked In. 👎
Annoying
by gkisler on 2020/10/21 15:13
Keeps sending notifications to connect to people I don’t want to connect! There is no way to turn it off.
I don’t want the app
by bmxmimi on 2020/10/21 13:49
I sign into linden and it won’t let me see anything, it says Linkedin works better with the app. They should say LinkedIn well not work at all without the app. For that reason I haven’t been on my phone storage is full and I’m deleting apps. I don’t want the app on my phone but I can’t use it unless I do
New Posts should work like Twitter app
by anilscuba on 2020/10/21 11:05
The “New Posts” buttonIt’s annoying, since it jumps up to the top of the feed instead of just loading the new feed and letting you scroll up, similar to how the Twitter app works. Extremely annoying to always lose your place when you click the button.
Broken with new update
by iPhonePrince on 2020/10/21 01:50
New update broke the software. Now i am no longer able to see the job descriptions on job posts because the menu bar for “Save” and “Apply” button block the view.
Refresh doesn’t work
by Wkate23 on 2020/10/21 00:29
It’s been several years and the app has never been updated where the refresh of the newest stories show up at the top. it seems like this would be something simple and straightforward to resolve. Why is this so hard to fix?
Liberal LinkedIn
by Mark27dh on 2020/10/20 22:12
Don’t waste your time, as LinkedIn is a liberal breeding ground. It has basically become the new Facebook. It isn’t about professional relationships but a place where anti-American, Democrat ads, and socialist posts are protected but you can’t stand up for anything conservative without being censored. The 59.99 charged each month for the premier membership is not worth ten dollars a month. When you use it for in mail, you hardly get a response. The customer service from LinkedIn is an absolute joke. They charge you that fee but fail yo give you any contact information for a problem. I hope another “actual professional” career site comes along and it will easily have millions of migrators.

LinkedIn so valuable but increasingly compromised by personal and political posts that have nothing to do with business or career. Disappointing.
Annoying Interruptions
by freeAgent85 on 2020/10/20 12:13
I have intentionally disabled the ability of apps to request reviews in the App Store because I dislike the interruption they cause. LinkedIn has decided that in order to work around this, they ask for feedback in-app that doesn’t make it into App Store reviews, which is every bit as disruptive and annoying. So, here is your review, LinkedIn. You get one star for ignoring user intent and preferences.
Can we have dark mode please?
by Shivanandana on 2020/10/20 11:23
Many tend to use LinkedIn for several hours everyday. Having dark mode would be really helpful.
Hope you guys can reach there shortly.
by KranthiTatoju on 2020/10/20 04:54
I love the app but am sure it need fixes. Don’t ask me what and where , I don’t feel the whole app itself holds the same quality as the other top apps like facebook and YouTube.

Hi Team @LinkedIn I’ve been using linkedIn since many years and never had a problem but these days i am facing some weird issues: - The app has started crashing and stucking on startup and sometimes on Notifications tab. - The notification badge sometimes remains there even if there’s no new notification. - Slow scrolling new feeds. These are some major issues i’ve been facing after the Apple’s biggest iOS update i.e. 14.0. I hope i’ll never face these issues in your next updates. Keep up the good vibes. Happy coding :)
Great app but...
by sm 1485 on 2019/10/28 17:21
I love this app however it frustrates me that the current job title seems to be the only factor that is included when recruiters are delivered search results. As a consultant, my title can be anything and it may be quite different from my functional role and area of expertise. Depending upon the currently listed job title, I’ve noticed a sharp difference in the number contacts I receive from recruiters and the roles they are seeking. I wish that other factors such as education, certifications and skills would be considered when recruiters are delivered search results. Also, LinkedIn should allow subscribers to search by certification or certificate. Currently a search for common certifications returns no results despite the fact that these certifications are listed within job descriptions.
Serious VoiceOver accessibility problems
by Lisa cushman on 2018/03/27 05:14
I am a blind person using the screen reader voiceover for iOS and I am having some serious VoiceOver accessibility problems. For one thing, in the new version, when I double tap on my Contacts, the app crashes every time. Secondly, when I am browsing through my people you may know section, the app get slower and slower and slower the longer eyebrows. Thirdly, if you were using voiceover, there is no option to remove someone from your people you may know list so that you do not see them anymore. The accessibility problems with this app used to be somewhat minimal. I am really looking forward to seeing this app fixed and using LinkedIn again. It is one of my favorite social networking platforms. I apologize if other people are bored by this review, but LinkedIn also does not have any where in the app or on the app support page to provide feedback about the app. I would also be kind of nice if developer of LinkedIn provided details about its updates in its release notes, but many App developers don’t do this. It’s just a pet peeve.
Horrible Interface
by kintobaR Rabotnik on 2019/06/13 21:38
I swear this site has provided me with so much stress just trying to set it up. I didn’t dropped out of college and I left my job but they are both in my interests and I cannot change them. Whenever I open the app it tells me to finish updating my profile but I don’t have anymore information to add. There’s no way to say no. When I tried to leave things blank because they don’t apply to me I couldn’t. I got a notice that I had shown up in a search but when I opened the notification I was taken to a page within the app that did not work without a laptop. Why would this happen on the mobile app? It makes no sense. I’ve made all the connections I want to for now but every time I open the app I have to skip through the page to make connections with random people I don’t know. This app and the website are infuriating to attempt to use. I use all kinds of other social media that work at least decently. This platform is by far the most angering to use. Maybe the team is overworked or has no time to fix these issues, but they are too glaring and long lasting to still be around.
Notification Issues
by ChristianDudette on 2020/08/17 17:02
I’m a job seeker and I’ve been using LinkedIn to aid in my search. However, I’m afraid of missing a job opportunity as whenever I get a push notification I never hear any sound, unlike with my other apps. I always see a red number on my LinkedIn app widget showing me how many new notifications I have however I never hear any sound. All other sounds seem to be working which leads me to believe it’s an app issue rather than a phone issue or operator error somewhere. Please help! Thanks! Also, unless I’m just missing it, I would LOVE the ability to select a custom notification sound within the app so I can identify a LinkedIn notification from all others. Thank you! Be safe! Oh! One thing I did forget to add is that I LOVE the section called “My Next Job Should Offer Me” where we’re able to specify benefits we’re asking for as well as the schedule we need. Oh and the Name Pronunciation feature is fantastic!!! Thank you!!!
Changes to LinkedIn.
by 1953ZBirdman on 2019/11/19 17:50
I too am very disappointed with LinkedIn and the direction it has taken. This previously was a great site for people to communicate with other people and companies. Whether it was trying to get a job, improving their position, finding a new workplace due to moving to a new area or trying to move up to a better job, talking with others about how to improve their job skills so they can prepare for a better job or keeping in touch with friends they worked with in the past or, even better, finding old friends and learning how to stay in touch with them. It WAS a great site. Now, as the previous commenter said, LinkedIn is now just another Facebook or Twitter. It’s totally lost all the professionalism it started with. If anyone in power within the LinkedIn organization reads this comment, please, please, PLEASE change the format back to what the original people or person had as their vision. If you don’t, I can foresee this site going down the tubes. I, for one, will do my best to start a new site with only one goal... to make a website for companies and individuals to get together and help each other grow both as a company and as individuals who want to help a company grow and a company willing to help their dedicated individuals grow within the company. Also, have learning institutions small and large contribute to the individuals growth. Is anyone out there with me on this?
The absolute worst networking app...
by SendingOutAnSOS on 2019/06/17 21:25
LinkedIn is the absolute worst, corrupt, and non user friendly social app out there. There are too many reasons to even begin mentioning all of them. Just to name one: if a user wants to unfriend or leave a group, LinkedIn intentionally makes it impossible to do so on the mobile app. I’m also still dealing with a “glitch” that the app had a few years ago. Without giving any permission to access my iPhone’s contacts, LinkedIn automatically dumped every one of my LinkedIn contacts into my iPhone’s contacts. Well over 500 contacts were combined with my personal contacts. Not a big deal you say? Well those contacts birthdays were then automatically also added to iPhone’s calendar. Everyday I would have at least a couple of these birthdays showing. For well over a year I was manually removing these contacts one name at a time. LinkedIn admitted to the error. Thanks that did nothing to help. So at this point I have zero trust in the integrity, honesty, or reliability of LinkedIn.
Chronological content feed - second attempt.
by Mike O PhD on 2018/12/14 00:13
LinkedIn... I love your platform. I have already posted a comment on the lack of a sort by “recent” function on for iOS. When I’m on my phone, the work around is to go to your mobile site, then request the desktop site, then select “sort by: recent”. The most recent update you just pushed out now has “lives” or something that feels like a clone of Instagram/YouTube/Snapchat/Facebook, etc. I do not subscribe to these platforms because I believe LinkedIn is the only social media platform of any substance. There is quality content and networking happening everyday. Why did your newest update add a cookie-cutter “lives” function and not a simple “sort by:recent” function. Why am I seeing 3 week old posts with recent posts scattered about. Totally ridiculous... The one platform I thought was doing a service to a community of professional people is slowly becoming just another social media platform.
Please add an unlimited word count
by (Joe)45 on 2020/04/18 14:34
I love LinkedIn, but would like to see an unlimited word count. There are so many times that I have a post that exceeds the allotted word count and it’s frustrating. I could condense what i need to say most times, but sometimes I need to be able to say more than what LinkedIn allows. If the post is good, people will read it. If not, they don’t have to read it and can just scroll on past. I’m sure if you took a poll from other LinkedIn users, you would find that most of them would agree that LinkedIn needs an unlimited word count. Don’t limit it solely for the purpose of making sure people’s posts are shorter. Give people the opportunity to add as much as they need to their posts. Sometimes you need to be able to add more to your post to properly say what you need to say because tightening your word count doesn’t always cut it.
Horrible
by twr_167 on 2020/01/03 00:26
The newest update has them limiting your preferences for your job search an forcibly showing you state wide jobs like that helps. If someone like myself has set up job preferences why take them away and why start showing jobs to them that are outside of their preferences like a job search isn't already hard enough and tiring enough. Now I'm every time I open the app instead of being able to scroll through the recommendations I have to create different searches because the jobs recommended to me are 8+ hours away and don't interest me in the slightest. Just because I live in a state doesn't mean I'm comfortable commuting far and doesn't mean I'm trying to relocate to the opposite side of it. So who's dumb idea was it to add that useless and annoying feature that shows jobs to people outside their now very limited preferences. I don't want to be shown state wide jobs and according to the customer service rep it's a feature I can't manually get rid of. Dumbest update to date.
Option to improve feed needs to be improved
by M Kutman on 2018/01/16 01:51
The app is solid and very easy to use. My complaints are the content in the Feed and that the option “improve my feed” really offers no real options except adding new people to follow. It should be flexible and let you choose what you want to see more of OR less of. For example, in my feed I don't need to see every single time a connection “likes” something. I also remember I always used to see when my current connections connected to new people. I used to see those a lot every day. That was helpful info if a contact connected to someone new in my industry. It worked well in conjunction with the other “people I may know” info. I almost never see those types of updates anymore in my feed. Can you explain why the feed offers me zero flexibility to see the things that are most important to me?
Feel abandoned
by jmnjga on 2019/12/11 14:48
My LI app will no longer run, I'm forced to upgrade the app, but my iPhone doesn't support the new minimum de for the latest app. Sad LI made that decision to not support earlier sw versions :( and being in transition spending $1k on new phone isn't the smartest idea right now. Laptop only going forward :( Still abandoned- their support said delete app and reload, there was hope as when I was reloading it said that it would load the sw that was compatible with my phone and that some features may not work. Ha, who knew the feature that wouldn't work was the app itself... they have a screen that comes up stating "update for the latest sw" but you can't get out of that loop, my phone doesn't support latest iPhone sw so it can't get the latest LI download. A silly loop they could correct if they wanted, I guess they don't want to, they closed my case because I didn't respond back in the hour, like all I have to do is mess with this app, ugh. Now you know why I feel abandoned...
App crashes and crashes again.
by Effthisnickname on 2018/09/13 01:23
I downloaded the app again because I thought it would be easier to use on my phone. I’ve been using it for about 30 minutes and it has crashed 3 times. It crashed while I was sending a request to connect. I was attaching a message to this request because the person doesn’t know me. Now, It has sent the request and I can’t finish my message. I don’t know if it attached what I typed already or not. Given that LinkedIn is a tool to help people network and make professional connections, this is more than frustrating. Now, to reach out to this person, I would have to pay for a premium account and use “in mail.” I’ll not be using the app anymore which is a serious inconvenience. I stopped using the Linked In app years ago because it would lead to accidental connection requests while scrolling through searches or suggested connection.
Responding to recruiters new feature is terrible
by unnecessary change on 2019/04/09 23:46
In the past when I was contacted by a recruiter in my message inbox, I could respond directly to the recruiter. Now, the app forces you to respond whether or not you are interested in the job before you have a chance to respond. To me this is a 100% unnecessary feature and is an unprofessional way to contact a recruiter to express interest. The right way to treat a recruiter is to write that person directly and let them know your intentions, perhaps including some background for your decision. This can help keep communication channels open in the future and is a networking opportunity. This new feature is a result of someone “overthinking” the situation. This goes back to the old saying, “If its not broke, don't fix it”
Terrible Update for New Jobseekers!!
by Dulce CaraBella on 2018/11/24 16:01
Why is the current company name for occupation now forced in the headline with the job title!?!? What about those of us that are currently seeking other jobs while still working at the current position??? This is a terrible thing, we should have the option to not have the company name on our headlines if we don’t want it! So disappointed. I was getting so many job opportunity inbox messages from recruiters with my customized headline before this terrible update, I was wondering why I hadn’t seen any inbox messages recently and now I know why, since you removed my customized headline and added the company I currently work for I don’t standout to recruiters anymore and I’m not getting any leads, my headline looks just like everybody else’s headline therefore recruiters don’t even notice me anymore because my headline doesn’t standout like it use to. Change it back please!
iPhone X
by JonathonNow on 2017/12/20 16:50
Number one, if your application in the Apple IDs door would support a dialog box when selecting apps support I would be writing this in that dialog box and not under reviews. My review is based on the fact that Face ID is not used by LinkedIn. LinkedIn‘s responses leave your app signed in. I do not wish to do that, the information in the app is too private for me to take LinkedIn suggestion. The technology for Face ID has been incorporated to I would say 70 percent of the applications at this point, so it tells me that updating your app to use this functionality cannot be that difficult. I’ll be waiting for the Face ID recognition in your app soon. I would use your out more by not having to manually put in my password, holding the phone to your face makes my motivation to use your application what greater than having to use my large fingers To type in my password. Thank you, John
Professional Networking Tool
by Candy_Girl80'sbaby on 2018/10/24 02:58
LinkedIn is my preferred way to interact with business professionals. I do, however, wish that the site would allow a longer time to deactivate an account or allow one to restore their account within a year. I deactivated my account for a “spiritual hiatus” and attempted to set my account back up and was unable to retrieve it. I built a great network before and now it seems like I am not getting as many recommendations for people that I knew from college and other businesses. 😏 I’m sure my post sounds like a combination of great things and not so great things, but I do really appreciate the fact that the tool is much more professional than most social media outlets.
Freezes, Can’t apply for jobs, links don’t work! NEEDS THE TO BE FIXED!
by Xtyna Yee on 2019/01/09 19:15
I’ve heard so many people speak highly of LinkedIn, so I tried it out. Unfortunately this app does NOT work, as it needs serious updates. When you try to apply for any of the job listing your are given the option to give permission to attach your LinkedIn profile in replace or your resume, it does NOT work. Once you click you get a white screen or when it does go through to the next screen where it will ask for your name and contact info it freezes. Therefore you can not apply for any of their job listings. So I look up the company on google to find their website and then apply that way with my own resume. The only thing LinkedIn is good for right now is to locate a job listing. Then apply on their site. I gave 1 star because at least they still proved job listing I can apply to on the companies web site directly.
Scammers
by scamNoMore on 2020/06/22 18:48
I was new to LinkedIn searching for new leads to jobs as I desperately need to find a new job after 27 years that gave my all. The hospital was bought out by Lahey Health and BI. Long story short I ended up being followed by what I know would turn out to be scams eventually asking for money I’m sure. I deleted one guy cause he made me feel uncomfortable. Then out of the blue 2 more people trying to chat with me. My final straw was when a third person tried to friend me or have conversation. But his profile picture was the person who first chatted with me. Different background picture but it was his face. Freaked me out so I don’t follow LinkedIn like I used to. I just recently had my identity stolen and I’m not going to entertain Catfish type people
Good app
by Nickname is already taken 3 on 2018/09/28 03:44
I really like LinkedIn because it’s social media kept professional. A suggestion I’d make that would help recruiters find and connect with talent is to add a salary requirement to the “jobs settings”. I get contacted by so many recruiters and each time they contact me about a position I talk to them for about 30 minutes just to find out they want to offer me a job that pays me 25-50% less than my current salary. It’s a complete waste of my time and the recruiter’s time as well. Another thing I’d recommend is providing recruiters a service that lets them know what is the median salary for the position they are trying to hire for so they understand how much professionals earn in their industry and position.
Horrible interface
by SquidlyMan on 2017/10/31 15:30
This is a perfect example of what NOT to do in mobile app design. 1. Useless messenger button that does nothing but try and get you to download the app by popping not one, but two screens (if you don’t have it). I won’t load Facebook Messenger because it won’t let me select no tracking without constantly being harassed. 2. Extremely small “x” for closing annoying ad windows so that if you have any normal or larger than normal finger (god forbid you try and use your thumb) then you end up opening the item instead. 3. Allowing you to block some advertisers for only 30-Days at a time??? Seriously. If it wasn’t bad enough that you show me adds from advertisers I’ve already blocked, now you’re unblocking them after 30 Days?? 4. Extremely small “x” for closing annoying recommended groups windows so that if you have any normal or larger than normal finger (god forbid you try and use your thumb) then you end up opening the item instead. Can I just get you to stop recommending stuff to me? I’m not sure what algorithm you use but the recommendations are horrible. 5. Translations are rarely ever correct. Give up here and just license Google’s translator. I’m not saying Google Translate is good, but it would at least be correct more than your translations are. There are more, I’m sure. But we will stop here.
Hate speech from other LinkedIn members and employees
by Cherra Hardy on 2020/10/02 06:42
Not a safe place to have a professional opinion in most professions. Especially if you are a women. LinkedIn does not respect women whom have professional scientific reasoning and professional opinions that vary from the political slant posted by either a member or otherwise linkedin; however LinkedIn will continue to push the political slant into your feed continually inviting you to acknowledge the political topic which is slanted and not academically or professionally sound. If you don’t like it and if you contribute your intelligent, professional and academically sound comment LinkedIn members state hate things to a person such as Members stating hate statement to me and others I have witnessed ). Very disappointed in the lack of professionalism from LinkedIn employees whom allow the members and themselves to be so hateful to women and others on LinkedIn whom state professional scientific academically sound verbiage on a topic.
A suggestion to the development team
by i.zayd on 2020/01/29 01:04
Dear Team, The app has been developed nicely and is very user friendly. Everything’s great. There’s one feature that would really help out, I am usually/mostly at work and have less time to watch videos, if there was a feature where I could save it to view later that would be amazing, I could just save the video/video link and go home and watch it instead of scrolling down and search for that post. Just like facebook app has the option to save the videos/video link to a certain ‘watch later’ folder. I really expect the team to work on it. Other than that, it’s good. Kudos to the developers!
Good app but bad recent changes
by mugnum_parts on 2019/03/08 22:38
LinkedIn is a great professional app and I love how I can work on my career and look for opportunities using it! Haven’t had any weird glitches with it yet that downgraded my experience. I do have to deduct some points though for recent changes. The messages button was moved to the upper right and in its place on the bottom middle of the screen is the add a post button. This seems like a worse UI experience because I know I check and respond to messages far more than I post up a message and it’s kinda awkward to move the messages button up there. I also find that I can’t swipe to the right to go back to the last page I was on. Instead, I usually have to tap the back arrow in the upper left, which again, could be improved.
Great but...
by Eagle33199 on 2018/11/28 16:11
The app is generally the only way I interact with LinkedIn, and it works well for what I need it. However, while I appreciate the alerts most of the time, ever since this last update I've gotten alerts several times a day. When opening the app, the alert ends up asking me if I know someone... And it's been the same individual every single time. And every time, I dismiss it because I don't know them. It's gotten to the point where I seriously want to turn off alerts for the app, which would significantly decrease it's usefulness. Up until this last update, it was just fine. Now it's begging for attention that I really don't want to give it.
Watch out for Premium Trial!!
by GREEK 2U on 2018/05/11 23:24
The mobile version lacks so many of the desktop version features such as privacy features and profile customization. However, what really bothers me is that LinkedIn uses this difference to their financial advantage so you cannot cancel a Premium subscription from your device even if they allow you to subscribe from your phone easily. You also get no notification when the Premium trial is ending so you get charged abruptly. If you miss the subscription cancellation date, LinkedIn will offer no refunds even if late by an hour!! Really? Update: The LinkedIn team reached out to me as shown below to offer support. Alas, it was all just lip service. When I reached out, they simply confirmed the limitations I had originally complained about without any real assistance offered.
App needs work
by missingmodule on 2020/03/12 17:07
I always use this app, however it’s not without its issues. I’ve contacted customer support about the number of jobs I’ve applied to being way off. This makes it difficult for tracking. After several of the same responses I always get from them whenever an issue is raised, “did you try deleting and reinstalling?” “What version and medium of the app are you using?” I’ve listed screenshots, very detailed notes that answers all that but it’s always the same generic questions they read off of like a script. Finally, I got a message that said, “we’re aware of the issue but are not pursuing a resolution right now.” So when it comes to tracking the specific jobs I’ve applied to, it’s a complete wash.
Must Have LinkedIn
by markbyrn on 2020/08/20 13:24
I think of LinkedIn as business knowledge career centric Facebook. Unlike Facebook, it tends to be more professional with less negative behavior. The feeds while not as well organized as Facebook, tend to provide more useful or pertinent information. A premium subscription is useful if you're actively looking for a job or you want to make use of LinkedIn Learning to improve your skill sets. The mobile version of LinkedIn is much less cluttered than the desktop version although I noticed I see promoted posts (adverts) even though I have premium; not sure if that's a bug or premium doesn't prevent adverts.
Doesn’t show Jobs you’ve Applied for!
by Chattysassy10 on 2020/07/22 15:21
Don’t plan on an easy time keeping track of the jobs you’ve applied for. I had applied for at least a dozen jobs. A couple days later I went to look for more jobs and check on the jobs I had already applied to. But under the “Jobs Applied” tab, there were ZERO jobs listed. Oh and I’m pretty sure I looked like an idiot when I accidentally applied for the same job twice since LinkedIn doesn’t tell you if you applied for the job yet or not. I emailed customer service and they took a week to get back to me. Here is the response: “Please note that only when you apply for Easy apply jobs. If you are applying Jobs on the external website, it will not show up in the applied Jobs section. Aishwarya Member Success Consultant” DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND USE INDEED! That app/site keeps track of EVERY job you’ve applied to and if you happen upon the same job listing later on it TELLS YOU that you’ve already applied to that one. Indeed is so helpful and much better organized. And you don’t have to see the “newsfeed” from other people posting about their own job. I’m sorry, but why would I care if a guy from high school who never talked to me is posting about his career that has nothing to do with mine?!
Linkedin App is a must have for anyone in business at any level
by Keithrube1 on 2017/10/14 19:05
When Linkedin first introduced an app I’ll admit I was sceptical. I was leery because I’ve experienced many many websites attempting to make life easier with a new app and they fall on their face. This particular app is probably one of the easiest to maneuver and it allows me to stay connected easily with notifications and simple maneuvering around the site. I choose to be a Premier member and the benefits are well worth the money. I love linked in. I’ve become friends worldwide not only for the industry I’m in but also personal friends with multitudes or different interests. Get the app.
Performance issues - always loading, rarely loads
by jt_alias on 2020/01/13 23:55
I love LinkedIn as an app however lately - over the last few months - the app has become so slow it’s almost unusable. Simple searches that used to return response in seconds now take minutes and often throw an error and don’t come back at all. Pretty much any action off the main landing page has not worked for me, returning the “oops it’s not you it’s us” error and it happens across mobile app and website. Often times I get the never ending spinner, with an ultimate failure error message. While I love LinkedIn - it’s not working - and hasn’t for weeks and I haven’t seen any acknowledgment of the issue which I have to imagine is widespread. Send help! Also please note that I installed the latest app on iPhone XR but no change :(
Frustrated! Tired of app crashing constantly.
by Bunty1286 on 2018/09/27 02:56
This app constantly crashes on uploading posts with photos and video. The effort that it takes to write a post goes to waste as it crashes more than 90% of the time. I am using iPhone X, so hardware should not be an excuse for this issue. I would like to hear what the developers have to say about the problem. This problem has been an issue for at least last 2 years. I have installed the app multiple time but no luck. I don’t use the app anymore but sometime while traveling I have no other option. I am not sure why such a basic functionality is not resolved on this platform. Is it too hard for LinkedIn to figure this out?? Developers, can you provide me with an answer? UPDATE 1: Developer asked to submit a ticket on LinkedIn website with app version and iOS version.
BEWARE - Terrible customer service and awful refund policy.
by Lora2424 on 2017/12/02 07:34
I was tricked into paying $135(!!!) for a “premium” subscription that has absolutely no value to me. I assumed that the free trial would end because I never received a single email or notification about the upcoming subscription renewal after signing up for a free trial last month. I tried to find a place to cancel the subscription in the app and on the website with no luck. Now LinkedIn refuses to refund the payment. I am appalled. For a company that feigns interest in professional success, they have absolutely no sense of what providing good customer service entails. Auto renewing an expensive subscription without notice and without asking for permission is sneaky and conniving. Then refusing to refund the payment is insane. I am severely disappointed in LinkedIn and will be sure to warn my employees, colleagues, and friends.
Love the app minus the constant crashing!
by cktriano1 on 2019/05/10 15:23
LinkedIn is wonderful and I’ve loved the website for almost two decades and I’ve loved the app for years. Well, that is until recently. Over the past few months, it does nothing but crash, crash, crash! Every time I do anything more than browse through newsfeeds or search for profiles/jobs, it crashes. Try to write an article on the app...crash! Try to apply to a job...almost always crashes! Try to download or save something from the app....I can guarantee it will crash! Please get this fixed so everyone from baby boomers to millennials and today’s college kiddos can utilize LinkedIn where they need it most....on their mobile device. Many thanks!
What Happened?????
by Irie's Pie! on 2018/06/19 17:54
I lived LinkedIn until a few weeks ago when I started getting notifications and solicitation from them via my work email asking if I wanted to join our network. After joining, it didn’t make sense to me to have two professional LinkedIn accounts. Of course my personal account was more prominent with a complete profile and a vast network. Once I merged the accounts, that all disappeared!!! I was left with the account attached to my work email and no profile. I’ve been looking on the website to see if I can get this corrected, but as in most cases there isn’t a was to get “LinkedIn” to a real person!!! Not sure if I even want to re-build another profile and network!
Feedback complain
by rlrescue on 2018/05/24 19:34
Although a majority of the individuals I have connected with through this app respect the Proper use of the app to connect with others that wish to be connected with. There are a select few that feel this tool is best used for making cold sales calls. My issue is this there is no way in this app to report they are using your email address and emailing you separate of the LinkedIn app in an effort to get you to buy or purchase one of their products. The way they behave on LinkedIn may not violate the terms and conditions but there is no way to identify The problem of a separate email from your connection to the folks at Linkedin so they can’t go about dealing with them appropriately.
I love this APP
by christopherokeefe on 2020/10/14 20:01
There are so many professionals at your fingertips like for example, I am a professional singer and I have access to contacting via messenger or adding them people like CEO of universal studio recording studio label and def jam’Atlantic records and there are DJ’s and producers and a lot more then this. I also want to mention the groups you can be added to like universal artist group,where you can post your music for all executives all 33,000 in the group to see your stuff and also work with top professionals if your serious about getting a foot in the door at any company this app is the place to be ....much love LinkedIn
Horrible user continuity and takes advantage of user data
by Lena Kay on 2019/02/21 18:30
I use LinkedIn on my Mac computer all the time and used to be signed in to the app on my previous iPhone. When getting a new phone, every other app was able to use facial detection to let me sign in, while LinkedIn was the ONLY app to reject my facial recognition and force me to take a “not a robot” test to collect AI data on if users can identify pictures. Is it necessary for me to take this free data AI collection test for Microsoft/LinkedIn over and over again every time I get my password wrong. Is there a reason why this is the only app that won’t accept my facial recognition, while every other app does, when moving from Mac to my iPhone to log in??? So annoying and ridiculous. Stop taking advantage of your users by forcing us to take AI tests for you to collect data.
Love LinkedIn but wishing you would fix the avatar issue
by LinsiCase on 2020/04/07 05:01
So I want to update my profile picture, but every time I try, it readjusts the color of the photo, and makes it super dark. No matter what image I select. I’ve tried several times and closing the app and taking it off, and it continues to do it. Definitely a minor issue, but annoying for sure. Other than that, I absolutely love LinkedIn. It’s an easy, fun way to connect to the business world and to network and build relationships across different markets and industries. It’s an absolute genius of a Social Media platform. Kudos to its creators. (Now I only wish the premium was cheaper 😂)
I cannot stand it
by Tootoon31 on 2018/09/10 11:20
Although the app is good in general, it just constantly fails to load contents. The different pages either don’t update or load partially or just don’t load at all! Sometimes I want to type a message to someone or update my profile, only to find out later that the message was lost or the updates were not made. It’s happening on both my iPhone and iPad. I’ve contacted the support team several times, each time they seem to fix the problem but only for a few days. It keeps coming back! I’m even a premium member but that doesn’t seem to make any difference, it’s just so frustrating. I’m starting to use other means like Glassdoor more and more... Conclusion: the app can be great but for me it’s totally unreliable, I just can’t recommend it for anyone who needs to seriously work with it.
Please Fix
by Jarek Bannister on 2017/09/23 16:45
I am trying to connect to a lot of fitness professionals and it takes 10+ minutes for the requests to send after I clicked on it. Then if I switch screens it stops sending them. So I have to resend requests over and over. It also covers up the search bar so I can’t do anything else. Then when clicking the little circles to add someone it always will jump to their page because my fingers are too fat maybe making it less sensitive around the circle or making it a bigger button would be better. It just is a nuisance and I can’t get back because the back button is covered up by the requests being sent pop up. Fix those problems and I’d say 5 star.
Just another Facebook or Instagram now
by Bradwiththebadhaircut on 2020/09/26 06:50
Just opened Facebook, I mean Instagram, oh no I mean LinkedIn. The latest update has remodeled the user interface to make it appear more like Facebook or Instagram. I have always loved the professionalism of LinkedIn and the feature that made it less like a social network. I’m not here for peoples live videos but more for professional opinions, relationships, and experiences. I am a multiple-times-a-day user, frequently browsing my industry network and making new and valuable connections. That won’t be as easy anymore with the latest move by LinkedIn to conform to the likes of Facebook and LinkedIn. Would love to learn more about the intelligence and user surveys that led to this latest change because they were obviously flawed.
Could be better
by spicy chica linda on 2019/10/30 20:05
First and most importantly, there should be a rate/review a company option! This would allow current, past & possible new candidates transparent reviews about every company! A competitor, Glassdoor has this feature! Past associates would be able to shine light on issues they encountered while working there as well. Secondly, what’s with the constant LinkedIn members flooding message inbox to get one to go premium? I would like a notification feature where I can more easily tell when I have new messages that way I can keep track and respond in a more timely fashion! Many messages from employers are lost in the shuffle of my LinkedIn messages overall.
Cannot message potentials connects before accepting
by ricegator on 2019/12/18 19:00
The evil money-grabbers at LinkedIn have removed the ability to message for free somebody who has requested to join your network. For privacy and security it is necessary that we be able to message these people to make sure they are who they say they are or if we don’t recognize them, to ask them where we know them from. As a free user I am now forced to accept the connection before sending the message, exposing my personal info to a potential stranger. The goblins as LinkedIn need to value our privacy and security over our money by reenabling the reply (don’t accept yet) option on connection requests. If you agree, please also give a one star review (you can even copy and paste mine) so we can inform LinkedIn that they cannot get away with this.
Stop with the excessive notifications
by Jh5320 on 2018/10/15 12:52
Update: I can’t send the screenshots to you with the glitch through this app. I’ve emailed you through the actual desktop site with this problem, asking for an email address to show you this issue. Nothing has changed and no one has contacted me. App will be deleted. I turned off all notifications because I was getting too many. I was tired of it. Now, I get a notification that I have no notifications set up. That’s. The. Point. Stop with this ridiculous amount of notifications. Fix it, otherwise, I’m deleting the app altogether. Update again: Since I just got another response from LinkedIn about this problem, here’s the update: I can’t send you a screenshot, see point above. The app has been deleted off my phone for months now.
Completely irresponsible with push notifications
by Fraxtil on 2017/10/03 18:51
I've turned off notifications for everything except the few things I care about (invitations to connect, messages, anything else that pertains directly to me). I still receive push notifications for superfluous events like "trending news articles" on a daily basis. The app is designed to have as many notification types as possible, and I've turned off more obscure notifications than I can remember. If you turn one off, the notification settings linked from the dismissed message only shows you what you've turned off, with no option to turn off all the other notifications you'll eventually receive. Completely irresponsible and annoying. I'll be reserving LinkedIn for the desktop from now on.
A great app/website for shameless self-promoters
by Shame on me? on 2020/09/01 14:49
I started my account 6 years ago in hopes it would help me land a new job. I found a new job but no thanks to LinkedIn (another web based job site helped with that). The content consists mostly of posts from people shamelessly promoting themselves or from people trying to spin their videos of children or animals into some kind of life altering message. Now the geniuses (at LinkedIn) are taking it upon themselves to change my chosen location on my profile unless I tell them not to. That’s seriously messed up. How about suggesting I change it? What’s really disturbing is that my phone does not show any location services that can be switched off on the app. Honestly thinking about deleting.
LinkedIn and Microsoft are not interested in your feedback
by Ewu777 on 2020/06/02 23:42
I spent 20 minutes looking for a way to provide app feedback on the app and on the website to no avail. Regardless, this is the actual feedback - I have been missing messages since I turned off badges. When I turned badges on to address this, I was inundated with LinkedIn's notification happy feed. I would like to see these things when I log in, but not interested in them being included in the badge alert count. My only option was to turn off badges and revert to email notifications for new messages. It seems like a missed opportunity, and even more so if they make it impossible for those interested in improving the platform to provide feedback.
Beware of the “free” premium auto renewal..
by H0rs3 luv3r on 2019/05/04 00:10
Before I start.. this is more a review for Apple/iTunes subscription practices than LinkedIn.. so everywhere you see LinkedIn, you can basically fill-in any auto renewal subscription app.. WATCH OUT!! If you’re interested in trying out the free Premium version, you better be paying attention because if you’re not, you're going to slapped with the $65 monthly subscription charge before you even figure out what the difference is between Premium and the free version! I can think of a TON of other things I’d rather spend $65 on! And if you do get charged, GOOD LUCK getting Apple/iTunes to issue you a refund... I think they literally flip a coin. You’re likely stuck with another 30 days. Maybe you can use the extra 30 days figure out the difference..SOUR APPLE!
Quit messing with the app!
by donnaray on 2017/11/20 03:46
And STOP asking me to link my contacts—never going to happen in a million years! I give up... What happened to the swipe feature to ignore/delete people whom I don’t want to send an invite to?? UPDATE: The response from LinkedIn makes absolutely no sense! I’m not asking for some new “improvement”—I want them to return to the logical functionality the app used to have. Do they honestly expect people to keep scrolling through this exhaustive list of names of others they don’t want to connect with, without a deletion method??? UPDATE 2: The latest response from LinkedIn still makes no sense! Again, this is not some kind of “new improvement” I’m requesting. It’s the way the app USED to work and NOW the functionality is GONE. PLEASE BRING IT BACK!!!! UPDATE 3: Thank you for bringing back the feature of being able to “x” the people I don’t want to connect with. But, the new huge box layout is awful because you see less people on the screen at once and can’t read as much about them without clicking on their profile. Just put it back to the way it used to be please!!

Useless Feed
by NefariousAryq on 2020/11/30 15:36
The feed is absolutely useless anymore due to LinkedIn refusing to let us sort by date. Algorithmic feeds are B.S. Right now my top post is 2 weeks old. My top five are all greater than 5 days old. Just absolutely completely useless. I want to see what’s new NOW. Not some post from 2 weeks ago I’ve already seen. Pathetic.

by hipeopleoftheworld on 2020/11/28 14:21
But crashes. Extremely annoying. I also don’t understand why LI made “stories” like Instagram. Stop pushing a professional platform towards replicating a social media app. Some of these features are just off-putting.
Home page stuck

by RickshawMe on 2020/11/24 12:11
I have now tested the app on iPhone X and iPhone 12 Pro Max. The full UI does not display on these phones and makes navigation impossible. The back arrow is not accessible, meaning I have to fully kill and restart the app just to get out of certain screens. There is no search bar, and no way to get to Settings. How could Microsoft release this app like this?

MUST BE FIXED!!!! PLEASE READ
by gpavlushkin on 2020/11/23 00:18
LinkedIn Team, For such a huge company, in disappointed you don’t compete with Facebook app, or any other social media apps. Please remove the length requirement when doing a post on letters and numbers! Sometimes I want to post something and it makes me shorten and remove a lot of the words. Also, compress the pics to fit into your boxes and offer different layouts for posting pictures on your app! This app is widely used and you guys are skipping up in features and developments on your app!
Yuck!
by Integrity Review on 2020/11/22 21:33
Your name and photo are used in ads (yes, by default). You don’t use this app—it uses you. They’ve tricked you into uploading your private address book (they sell it as an ad targeting feature). Were you that person? Linkedin is ads, upsells, ads, click-bait, more ads, and lame “classes.” Good luck trying to be “in the conversation” when ad-clicks matter most to Microsoft. Update: Your “product” and mobile teams already “took a closer look” and said management is hyper-fixated on “ad engagement.”
Disregard for voiceover access
by Blindstein on 2020/11/22 18:19
The developer responded to this review telling me to contact support, as if it was my fault that I cannot even sign in using my ipad with VoiceOver. When I reached out support had no idea what I was talking about. The LinkedIn service has a long rich history of disregard for blind users. If we can't use the service it is by design, and not due to user incompitence. Original Review If you are a blind voiceover user with an iPad, you’re out of luck with this app, as you cannot even login. If you manage to get past the screen where you type in your username and password, which I can only do by turning off the screen reader, the visual captcha does the work that linked in‘s developers might’ve failed to do with the login screen.
Facebook ruined it
by Mreeves336 on 2020/11/22 16:59
Change it back. No one in society has ever wished that their LinkedIn look like Facebook. We want Facebook to look like Facebook, LinkedIn to look like LinkedIn, and Instagram to look like Instagram. There needs to be a clear distinction and blurring the lines only makes me use LinkedIn list. Especially since the majority of my messages now are people pandering MLM schemes. Worthless.

Another scam
by DuppyC on 2020/11/20 16:47
I was very disappointed that linked in operates very similar to many other services that makes it impossible to view your account, impossible to speak with a representative, and impossible to receive any support from linked in. I’ve been on hold for 3 hours with no response. My account was charged $406.90 WITHOUT authorization. I never signed up for a subscription and when I checked my purchase history NOTHING comes up. This is a classic company making it next to impossible to access the information you actually want. These are the tricks of the trade when dealing with services that want your subscription. Linked in may be popular amongst job seekers but please use accordingly. The subscriptions are really traps and come with charges that you most likely don’t want. Best advise: just use another job seeking service.
App Freezes

This gives me suggestions for locations out of Houston. I also entered distance and it gives me jobs more than the miles I set. I don’t need all the ones out of Houston. I need it close to my zip code. I get better suggestions from indeed but they have with the pay and days I’m looking for.
Notification spam
by wolfEXE57 on 2020/11/19 15:47
Deleted the app today because I awoke to 6 messages from this app and then within my 20 min morning wakeup routine i got 3 more all for the same thing. I dont care if BBC is going live, i dont care im never going to watch. I dont care if someone wants to connect(even though when you go into the app nobody wants to connect, its a fake notification to get you to click on the app) 0/10 app seems the developers now have bad intentions

by fiddler5 on 2020/11/16 08:32
Please do some content moderating. Lately my feed looks like Facebook with posts about people’s political preference, happy anniversary to my wife, prayers, pictures of kids and pets. No recipes yet, but I’m sure that’s next! LinkedIn was a place for business, with business related posts. Could we please get back to that?

Free 1-year Premium subscription for Veterans
by Kaik_M on 2020/11/14 18:21
I’ve been using this flow to confirm my veteran go status and obtain free 1-year Premium Career subscription for many times. And I am thankful that LinkedIn is giving this opportunity to use their platform to network and grow. Last few weeks I tried multiple times to sign-in with my Troop ID. Every time I would end up with senseless error message. The content of error message is “Error! message missing” Is there any reasonable reason that the creation of support ticket is not include in the app itself? Please address this issue ASAP!

What Jobs?
by SFCOX85 on 2020/11/13 23:58
As a retired military service member let me just say this was a waste of time and energy. Yea there are job posts but good luck getting a response. If you have high degrees in education then go do it. Blue collar workers, don’t waste your time. It’s like Facebook. Social media junk!!! I’ve used this for over 2 years with not 1 not 1 job interview. Not one call back. Just more social media junk. More political b.s. I can bet Linkdin and indeed are the same platform. Junk, junk and more junk. Thanks for wasting my time and selling my information. Whoever made this app is trash with it.
Changing my background - UPDATE
by Bcarney77 on 2020/11/13 11:22
UPDATE: I was able to change my background photo, but I had to do it through the website. The directions to change it on the app were incorrect and new reviewed. I’ve updated my rating to 3 stars. The directions on the app are not aligned with my app views. I’m missing a profile icon, which is wearing the help instructions are directing me to go to change my background. I’ve clicked on every possible section within settings and I’m getting nowhere. I’m able to update my profile photo, but not my background.
Disappointing update
by IMC1782 on 2020/11/11 23:35
UI leaves a lot to be desired. So much white space and poor contrast. Content on pages looks crowded and is hard to differentiate. Navigation Bar at the bottom blends in too much. Grey icons are meh, which basically sums up the UX. I do like the new logo that appears when the app is launched.

Whenever someone accepts my connection, it doesn’t really notify me even though I have the settings set as such. It’s hard to tell who has accepted, so I end up going on a scavenger hunt trying to figure that out. Somethings off with the app...
I don’t like this site
by AaronWMele on 2020/11/10 21:40
I do not like LinkedIn, I think it’s just as bad as Facebook. It spams me with pages that I don’t want to see and won’t let me block them. It lets me “report abuse”, but won’t let me hide a page that it wants to force on me. The UI has gotten better over the years, but I still really dislike the platform as a whole. I don’t follow any pages, i just have connections. It’s constantly pushing things that my connections “like” on me and won’t allow me to stop it. I want a professional platform, not a propaganda machine.
did you forget to add designers to your team?
by parikhparth23 on 2020/11/10 03:03
i think designers were not part of this update.
Less Notifications
by Mattyrrich on 2020/11/09 22:42
Your notification campaign is desperate and irritating. The only notifications I want are when I’m messaged or for other alerts that I’ve set up. Stop prodding me to connect with other people with your “do you know X person?”. That alone caused me to turn off all notifications. This is a great opportunity for a notification prefs page. If you have one, it’s a great opportunity to make it easier to find. I will only ever use your app when I’m job searching.
Can I post maybe?
by LRODZZ on 2020/11/09 17:55
I rarely am able to post on this app. Makes the process of posting so much harder. My gallery only sometimes loads up but most of the time it never does and this makes everything alot harder. Can you please fix this issue.
Censorship
by ieatassoccassionally on 2020/11/09 17:42
LinkedIn always says it’s not a political platform, but workers at LinkedIn are allowed to create pro liberal and anti conservative news stories.
Better but Not Really
by woodyshauna7 on 2020/11/09 13:52
LinkedIn is so much better than where it came from, but I still know more people that get jobs from search sites.
Do not refresh timeline on rotation of iPad
by i.generic on 2020/11/08 21:30
Why does the app scroll to the top of the timeline when I rotate my iPad to landscape or portrait mode? It happens in the timeline and als when I open a post, rotate the iPad to watch a video and then return to the timeline.

Simple feature to add
by Hamanhig on 2020/11/08 09:19
Hi Guys, Can you please add a simple feature to mark jobs that I’ve already applied for on an external site in the same way you have it to “easy apply” job posts. It will be even better to add a filter to the search. Thanks!!
Great app but...
by Bassguitar 13 on 2020/11/08 07:25
This has turned into my most used app out of all of the other social media apps that I own. The level of networking through this app has been a catalyst to my success. I just wish there were a dark mode for the app that way many users like myself can stay on the app longer !
Dark Mode
by pittsburgh lover on 2020/11/07 16:31
App works well, but please add dark mode!! Then it’s 5 stars!
Bad User Interface
by JaredTraum on 2020/11/07 12:24
The latest update has turned everything white. There is no color separation so everything blends into each other. Very difficult to use because you can’t tell what is where. Terrible experience.
Redesign

Great work devs and designers, the new redesign looks fantastic and modern!

Pay grade should be required

I display all of my career and education history but employers aren’t required to show a pay grade. How do I know if it’s worth it to even apply?
Job Posting Description Bug
by ExInfoPro on 2020/11/06 02:15
Uninstalling the app and reinstalling it didn’t work for me. There is a bug in the IOS version of this UI. The beginning of the job description is covered up by an overlay. So, you can only read the bottom portion of it. This needs to be fixed immediate.
No dark mode after a year

Needs dark mode badly
by FTW28 on 2020/11/05 16:17
The app is good but I literally never use it at night because my entire phone interface and all third party apps are in dark mode, except for LinkedIn. When I open it, it blinds me and I immediately close it and move onto something else.
Connections issue.
by OZ1905 on 2020/11/05 05:17
How many times do I have to tap and click on an people you might know people for them to stop coming back up. Do I have to block them just to see new people on that list. This is an issue on the app and on the desktop website.

Story feature

Hello, I cannot upload the story feature on videos longer than 20 seconds, would be great if we can download the video of more than 2” seconds and then it can split it to different story posts just like Instagram. Thanks,

Great! - One annoyance
by CrabsJoeShack on 2020/11/03 09:44
Good app, helps keep in touch with past and present co-workers and networking for current and future solutions. One annoyance - Irritating to have a job open, have to change apps for a time and come back to LinkedIn home page. Just stay where I was last if I don’t close the app please.

False notifications
by snam23 on 2020/11/01 19:27
This is a review for the app itself. It gives me false notifications. There will be a red number on the icon indicating I have new notifications. However, when I open the app, I have no new notifications. Social networking apps with notifications features are not new. I don’t know why LinkedIn can’t figure this out. I first noticed this at the beginning of the 2020. After several updates, it is October 2020 and this issue is still not fixed.
Was business oriented, has become political grandstanding platform
by Mb_2200 on 2020/11/01 18:02
It’s getting so I can no longer read my feed without cringing due to how LinkedIn is allowing politically motivated messaging to take over the platform
Harassment
by kdyulnen on 2020/11/01 16:55
Just another type of Facebook stealing your personal data and pimping you out. Constantly bothered by notifications. I love how they are taking advantage of job seekers. I’ve found jobs quicker with less bothersome apps.

Notifications Issue
by BetaStat on 2020/10/30 10:15
Will get a push notification on the app symbol, but upon opening the app itself, no notifications are apparent. You have to go hunting through the app menus and play hide n seek. Was it a message? A notification? Check my profile?? Who knows. It takes 3 or 4 random menu selections to make the push notification go away on the phone. App also has some other buggy issues, like getting stuck on a page or menu within the app. Overall great work. Notification paths need some tending to.

Swipe keyboard not working well with the app
by Rajnishkr on 2020/10/28 15:50
The default iOS swipe keyboard is not working well with the app. I tried it while commenting on a post, but after aword, it doesn’t type the next word using the swipe action. You have to type individual characters for forming sentences.
How can an app in 2020 not offer rotation support?
by Kentucky Windage 2015 on 2020/10/28 01:09
App is ok as far as it goes, but it baffles me why the devs do not support rotation. Sometimes the vertical orientation cuts off parts of words in a headline, profile, etc. Rather than clicking on useless link, I often rotate my phone on other apps/websites to get more in and decide whether to click the link. But not in this app. (Also not on the website, so it’s a conscious decision by LinkedIn.) I installed the app because a couple features weren’t available on the website.
App became really ugly
by Sdfhhvd on 2020/10/27 17:11
This app used to look really nice. Recently, it was updated to be super ugly to the point where I never want to look at it again. Normally, I can tolerate apps changing their appearance, but LinkedIn now looks like it was designed in the 90s
It’s 2020 and the keyboard interaction is broken

When you’re viewing comments for a post, the keyboard remains open, blocking most of the view. Even when you scroll the comments down, the keyboard remains open.

The app can be so much better
by Bism@rk on 2020/10/24 18:32
For a company like LinkedIn the app's user experience is subpar. The in-app browser is slow, rendering has UI issues. Most used buttons are in wrong place. The entire experience shows lack of attention to detail. Please look at apps like Insta, FB, tiktok, slack etc and overhaul your complete UX. I feel like I'm using an app from 2000s.

Access

Google
by Nicknames!!! on 2020/10/23 21:50
every time I get a request to except a contact, it takes me to google and then it asked me if I will allow LinkedIn to access and possibly permanently delete my contacts. When I accept the request through my iCloud account I don’t have this problem. I don’t like going through Google and I choose Safari as my browser so why does this keep happening? I have a Gmail account only because my past broker required it. Otherwise it’s way easier to use linked in with iCloud.
Mail system is poorly thought out/executed
by AK2771167 on 2020/10/23 14:41
LinkedIn’s inbox is terrible it’s structured like text messaging and it doesn’t work effectively for tracking and follow up. Worse sometimes it shows new/unread mail when there is none, sometimes read mail doesn’t show read.

Linked In App

Thank you for informing me by email of people I know on Linked In. I did have the Linked In app, but deleted it, because it takes up too much memory. I am retired and just have a part-time job, so have no need at this time to follow every single comment. Now you won’t let me in to even accept a new request Disappointed in Linked In. 👎

I don’t want the app
by bmxmimi on 2020/10/21 13:49
I sign into linden and it won’t let me see anything, it says Linkedin works better with the app. They should say LinkedIn well not work at all without the app. For that reason I haven’t been on my phone storage is full and I’m deleting apps. I don’t want the app on my phone but I can’t use it unless I do
New Posts should work like Twitter app
by anilscuba on 2020/10/21 11:05
The “New Posts” buttonIt’s annoying, since it jumps up to the top of the feed instead of just loading the new feed and letting you scroll up, similar to how the Twitter app works. Extremely annoying to always lose your place when you click the button.
Broken with new update
by iPhonePrince on 2020/10/21 01:50
New update broke the software. Now i am no longer able to see the job descriptions on job posts because the menu bar for “Save” and “Apply” button block the view.
Refresh doesn’t work
by Wkate23 on 2020/10/21 00:29
It’s been several years and the app has never been updated where the refresh of the newest stories show up at the top. it seems like this would be something simple and straightforward to resolve. Why is this so hard to fix?
Liberal LinkedIn
by Mark27dh on 2020/10/20 22:12
Don’t waste your time, as LinkedIn is a liberal breeding ground. It has basically become the new Facebook. It isn’t about professional relationships but a place where anti-American, Democrat ads, and socialist posts are protected but you can’t stand up for anything conservative without being censored. The 59.99 charged each month for the premier membership is not worth ten dollars a month. When you use it for in mail, you hardly get a response. The customer service from LinkedIn is an absolute joke. They charge you that fee but fail yo give you any contact information for a problem. I hope another “actual professional” career site comes along and it will easily have millions of migrators.

by TBDLFD on 2020/10/20 18:49
LinkedIn so valuable but increasingly compromised by personal and political posts that have nothing to do with business or career. Disappointing.
Annoying Interruptions
by freeAgent85 on 2020/10/20 12:13
I have intentionally disabled the ability of apps to request reviews in the App Store because I dislike the interruption they cause. LinkedIn has decided that in order to work around this, they ask for feedback in-app that doesn’t make it into App Store reviews, which is every bit as disruptive and annoying. So, here is your review, LinkedIn. You get one star for ignoring user intent and preferences.
Can we have dark mode please?
by Shivanandana on 2020/10/20 11:23
Many tend to use LinkedIn for several hours everyday. Having dark mode would be really helpful.
Hope you guys can reach there shortly.
by KranthiTatoju on 2020/10/20 04:54
I love the app but am sure it need fixes. Don’t ask me what and where , I don’t feel the whole app itself holds the same quality as the other top apps like facebook and YouTube.

by Best Wisher on 2020/10/19 20:51
Hi Team @LinkedIn I’ve been using linkedIn since many years and never had a problem but these days i am facing some weird issues: - The app has started crashing and stucking on startup and sometimes on Notifications tab. - The notification badge sometimes remains there even if there’s no new notification. - Slow scrolling new feeds. These are some major issues i’ve been facing after the Apple’s biggest iOS update i.e. 14.0. I hope i’ll never face these issues in your next updates. Keep up the good vibes. Happy coding :)
Great app but...
by sm 1485 on 2019/10/28 17:21
I love this app however it frustrates me that the current job title seems to be the only factor that is included when recruiters are delivered search results. As a consultant, my title can be anything and it may be quite different from my functional role and area of expertise. Depending upon the currently listed job title, I’ve noticed a sharp difference in the number contacts I receive from recruiters and the roles they are seeking. I wish that other factors such as education, certifications and skills would be considered when recruiters are delivered search results. Also, LinkedIn should allow subscribers to search by certification or certificate. Currently a search for common certifications returns no results despite the fact that these certifications are listed within job descriptions.
Serious VoiceOver accessibility problems
by Lisa cushman on 2018/03/27 05:14
I am a blind person using the screen reader voiceover for iOS and I am having some serious VoiceOver accessibility problems. For one thing, in the new version, when I double tap on my Contacts, the app crashes every time. Secondly, when I am browsing through my people you may know section, the app get slower and slower and slower the longer eyebrows. Thirdly, if you were using voiceover, there is no option to remove someone from your people you may know list so that you do not see them anymore. The accessibility problems with this app used to be somewhat minimal. I am really looking forward to seeing this app fixed and using LinkedIn again. It is one of my favorite social networking platforms. I apologize if other people are bored by this review, but LinkedIn also does not have any where in the app or on the app support page to provide feedback about the app. I would also be kind of nice if developer of LinkedIn provided details about its updates in its release notes, but many App developers don’t do this. It’s just a pet peeve.
Horrible Interface
by kintobaR Rabotnik on 2019/06/13 21:38
I swear this site has provided me with so much stress just trying to set it up. I didn’t dropped out of college and I left my job but they are both in my interests and I cannot change them. Whenever I open the app it tells me to finish updating my profile but I don’t have anymore information to add. There’s no way to say no. When I tried to leave things blank because they don’t apply to me I couldn’t. I got a notice that I had shown up in a search but when I opened the notification I was taken to a page within the app that did not work without a laptop. Why would this happen on the mobile app? It makes no sense. I’ve made all the connections I want to for now but every time I open the app I have to skip through the page to make connections with random people I don’t know. This app and the website are infuriating to attempt to use. I use all kinds of other social media that work at least decently. This platform is by far the most angering to use. Maybe the team is overworked or has no time to fix these issues, but they are too glaring and long lasting to still be around.
Notification Issues
by ChristianDudette on 2020/08/17 17:02
I’m a job seeker and I’ve been using LinkedIn to aid in my search. However, I’m afraid of missing a job opportunity as whenever I get a push notification I never hear any sound, unlike with my other apps. I always see a red number on my LinkedIn app widget showing me how many new notifications I have however I never hear any sound. All other sounds seem to be working which leads me to believe it’s an app issue rather than a phone issue or operator error somewhere. Please help! Thanks! Also, unless I’m just missing it, I would LOVE the ability to select a custom notification sound within the app so I can identify a LinkedIn notification from all others. Thank you! Be safe! Oh! One thing I did forget to add is that I LOVE the section called “My Next Job Should Offer Me” where we’re able to specify benefits we’re asking for as well as the schedule we need. Oh and the Name Pronunciation feature is fantastic!!! Thank you!!!
Changes to LinkedIn.
by 1953ZBirdman on 2019/11/19 17:50
I too am very disappointed with LinkedIn and the direction it has taken. This previously was a great site for people to communicate with other people and companies. Whether it was trying to get a job, improving their position, finding a new workplace due to moving to a new area or trying to move up to a better job, talking with others about how to improve their job skills so they can prepare for a better job or keeping in touch with friends they worked with in the past or, even better, finding old friends and learning how to stay in touch with them. It WAS a great site. Now, as the previous commenter said, LinkedIn is now just another Facebook or Twitter. It’s totally lost all the professionalism it started with. If anyone in power within the LinkedIn organization reads this comment, please, please, PLEASE change the format back to what the original people or person had as their vision. If you don’t, I can foresee this site going down the tubes. I, for one, will do my best to start a new site with only one goal... to make a website for companies and individuals to get together and help each other grow both as a company and as individuals who want to help a company grow and a company willing to help their dedicated individuals grow within the company. Also, have learning institutions small and large contribute to the individuals growth. Is anyone out there with me on this?
The absolute worst networking app...
by SendingOutAnSOS on 2019/06/17 21:25
LinkedIn is the absolute worst, corrupt, and non user friendly social app out there. There are too many reasons to even begin mentioning all of them. Just to name one: if a user wants to unfriend or leave a group, LinkedIn intentionally makes it impossible to do so on the mobile app. I’m also still dealing with a “glitch” that the app had a few years ago. Without giving any permission to access my iPhone’s contacts, LinkedIn automatically dumped every one of my LinkedIn contacts into my iPhone’s contacts. Well over 500 contacts were combined with my personal contacts. Not a big deal you say? Well those contacts birthdays were then automatically also added to iPhone’s calendar. Everyday I would have at least a couple of these birthdays showing. For well over a year I was manually removing these contacts one name at a time. LinkedIn admitted to the error. Thanks that did nothing to help. So at this point I have zero trust in the integrity, honesty, or reliability of LinkedIn.
Chronological content feed - second attempt.
by Mike O PhD on 2018/12/14 00:13
LinkedIn... I love your platform. I have already posted a comment on the lack of a sort by “recent” function on for iOS. When I’m on my phone, the work around is to go to your mobile site, then request the desktop site, then select “sort by: recent”. The most recent update you just pushed out now has “lives” or something that feels like a clone of Instagram/YouTube/Snapchat/Facebook, etc. I do not subscribe to these platforms because I believe LinkedIn is the only social media platform of any substance. There is quality content and networking happening everyday. Why did your newest update add a cookie-cutter “lives” function and not a simple “sort by:recent” function. Why am I seeing 3 week old posts with recent posts scattered about. Totally ridiculous... The one platform I thought was doing a service to a community of professional people is slowly becoming just another social media platform.
Please add an unlimited word count
by (Joe)45 on 2020/04/18 14:34
I love LinkedIn, but would like to see an unlimited word count. There are so many times that I have a post that exceeds the allotted word count and it’s frustrating. I could condense what i need to say most times, but sometimes I need to be able to say more than what LinkedIn allows. If the post is good, people will read it. If not, they don’t have to read it and can just scroll on past. I’m sure if you took a poll from other LinkedIn users, you would find that most of them would agree that LinkedIn needs an unlimited word count. Don’t limit it solely for the purpose of making sure people’s posts are shorter. Give people the opportunity to add as much as they need to their posts. Sometimes you need to be able to add more to your post to properly say what you need to say because tightening your word count doesn’t always cut it.
Horrible
by twr_167 on 2020/01/03 00:26
The newest update has them limiting your preferences for your job search an forcibly showing you state wide jobs like that helps. If someone like myself has set up job preferences why take them away and why start showing jobs to them that are outside of their preferences like a job search isn't already hard enough and tiring enough. Now I'm every time I open the app instead of being able to scroll through the recommendations I have to create different searches because the jobs recommended to me are 8+ hours away and don't interest me in the slightest. Just because I live in a state doesn't mean I'm comfortable commuting far and doesn't mean I'm trying to relocate to the opposite side of it. So who's dumb idea was it to add that useless and annoying feature that shows jobs to people outside their now very limited preferences. I don't want to be shown state wide jobs and according to the customer service rep it's a feature I can't manually get rid of. Dumbest update to date.
Option to improve feed needs to be improved
by M Kutman on 2018/01/16 01:51
The app is solid and very easy to use. My complaints are the content in the Feed and that the option “improve my feed” really offers no real options except adding new people to follow. It should be flexible and let you choose what you want to see more of OR less of. For example, in my feed I don't need to see every single time a connection “likes” something. I also remember I always used to see when my current connections connected to new people. I used to see those a lot every day. That was helpful info if a contact connected to someone new in my industry. It worked well in conjunction with the other “people I may know” info. I almost never see those types of updates anymore in my feed. Can you explain why the feed offers me zero flexibility to see the things that are most important to me?
Feel abandoned
by jmnjga on 2019/12/11 14:48
My LI app will no longer run, I'm forced to upgrade the app, but my iPhone doesn't support the new minimum de for the latest app. Sad LI made that decision to not support earlier sw versions :( and being in transition spending $1k on new phone isn't the smartest idea right now. Laptop only going forward :( Still abandoned- their support said delete app and reload, there was hope as when I was reloading it said that it would load the sw that was compatible with my phone and that some features may not work. Ha, who knew the feature that wouldn't work was the app itself... they have a screen that comes up stating "update for the latest sw" but you can't get out of that loop, my phone doesn't support latest iPhone sw so it can't get the latest LI download. A silly loop they could correct if they wanted, I guess they don't want to, they closed my case because I didn't respond back in the hour, like all I have to do is mess with this app, ugh. Now you know why I feel abandoned...
App crashes and crashes again.
by Effthisnickname on 2018/09/13 01:23
I downloaded the app again because I thought it would be easier to use on my phone. I’ve been using it for about 30 minutes and it has crashed 3 times. It crashed while I was sending a request to connect. I was attaching a message to this request because the person doesn’t know me. Now, It has sent the request and I can’t finish my message. I don’t know if it attached what I typed already or not. Given that LinkedIn is a tool to help people network and make professional connections, this is more than frustrating. Now, to reach out to this person, I would have to pay for a premium account and use “in mail.” I’ll not be using the app anymore which is a serious inconvenience. I stopped using the Linked In app years ago because it would lead to accidental connection requests while scrolling through searches or suggested connection.
Responding to recruiters new feature is terrible
by unnecessary change on 2019/04/09 23:46
In the past when I was contacted by a recruiter in my message inbox, I could respond directly to the recruiter. Now, the app forces you to respond whether or not you are interested in the job before you have a chance to respond. To me this is a 100% unnecessary feature and is an unprofessional way to contact a recruiter to express interest. The right way to treat a recruiter is to write that person directly and let them know your intentions, perhaps including some background for your decision. This can help keep communication channels open in the future and is a networking opportunity. This new feature is a result of someone “overthinking” the situation. This goes back to the old saying, “If its not broke, don't fix it”
Terrible Update for New Jobseekers!!
by Dulce CaraBella on 2018/11/24 16:01
Why is the current company name for occupation now forced in the headline with the job title!?!? What about those of us that are currently seeking other jobs while still working at the current position??? This is a terrible thing, we should have the option to not have the company name on our headlines if we don’t want it! So disappointed. I was getting so many job opportunity inbox messages from recruiters with my customized headline before this terrible update, I was wondering why I hadn’t seen any inbox messages recently and now I know why, since you removed my customized headline and added the company I currently work for I don’t standout to recruiters anymore and I’m not getting any leads, my headline looks just like everybody else’s headline therefore recruiters don’t even notice me anymore because my headline doesn’t standout like it use to. Change it back please!
iPhone X

Number one, if your application in the Apple IDs door would support a dialog box when selecting apps support I would be writing this in that dialog box and not under reviews. My review is based on the fact that Face ID is not used by LinkedIn. LinkedIn‘s responses leave your app signed in. I do not wish to do that, the information in the app is too private for me to take LinkedIn suggestion. The technology for Face ID has been incorporated to I would say 70 percent of the applications at this point, so it tells me that updating your app to use this functionality cannot be that difficult. I’ll be waiting for the Face ID recognition in your app soon. I would use your out more by not having to manually put in my password, holding the phone to your face makes my motivation to use your application what greater than having to use my large fingers To type in my password. Thank you, John
Professional Networking Tool
by Candy_Girl80'sbaby on 2018/10/24 02:58
LinkedIn is my preferred way to interact with business professionals. I do, however, wish that the site would allow a longer time to deactivate an account or allow one to restore their account within a year. I deactivated my account for a “spiritual hiatus” and attempted to set my account back up and was unable to retrieve it. I built a great network before and now it seems like I am not getting as many recommendations for people that I knew from college and other businesses. 😏 I’m sure my post sounds like a combination of great things and not so great things, but I do really appreciate the fact that the tool is much more professional than most social media outlets.
Freezes, Can’t apply for jobs, links don’t work! NEEDS THE TO BE FIXED!
by Xtyna Yee on 2019/01/09 19:15
I’ve heard so many people speak highly of LinkedIn, so I tried it out. Unfortunately this app does NOT work, as it needs serious updates. When you try to apply for any of the job listing your are given the option to give permission to attach your LinkedIn profile in replace or your resume, it does NOT work. Once you click you get a white screen or when it does go through to the next screen where it will ask for your name and contact info it freezes. Therefore you can not apply for any of their job listings. So I look up the company on google to find their website and then apply that way with my own resume. The only thing LinkedIn is good for right now is to locate a job listing. Then apply on their site. I gave 1 star because at least they still proved job listing I can apply to on the companies web site directly.
Scammers
by scamNoMore on 2020/06/22 18:48
I was new to LinkedIn searching for new leads to jobs as I desperately need to find a new job after 27 years that gave my all. The hospital was bought out by Lahey Health and BI. Long story short I ended up being followed by what I know would turn out to be scams eventually asking for money I’m sure. I deleted one guy cause he made me feel uncomfortable. Then out of the blue 2 more people trying to chat with me. My final straw was when a third person tried to friend me or have conversation. But his profile picture was the person who first chatted with me. Different background picture but it was his face. Freaked me out so I don’t follow LinkedIn like I used to. I just recently had my identity stolen and I’m not going to entertain Catfish type people
Good app
by Nickname is already taken 3 on 2018/09/28 03:44
I really like LinkedIn because it’s social media kept professional. A suggestion I’d make that would help recruiters find and connect with talent is to add a salary requirement to the “jobs settings”. I get contacted by so many recruiters and each time they contact me about a position I talk to them for about 30 minutes just to find out they want to offer me a job that pays me 25-50% less than my current salary. It’s a complete waste of my time and the recruiter’s time as well. Another thing I’d recommend is providing recruiters a service that lets them know what is the median salary for the position they are trying to hire for so they understand how much professionals earn in their industry and position.
Horrible interface
by SquidlyMan on 2017/10/31 15:30
This is a perfect example of what NOT to do in mobile app design. 1. Useless messenger button that does nothing but try and get you to download the app by popping not one, but two screens (if you don’t have it). I won’t load Facebook Messenger because it won’t let me select no tracking without constantly being harassed. 2. Extremely small “x” for closing annoying ad windows so that if you have any normal or larger than normal finger (god forbid you try and use your thumb) then you end up opening the item instead. 3. Allowing you to block some advertisers for only 30-Days at a time??? Seriously. If it wasn’t bad enough that you show me adds from advertisers I’ve already blocked, now you’re unblocking them after 30 Days?? 4. Extremely small “x” for closing annoying recommended groups windows so that if you have any normal or larger than normal finger (god forbid you try and use your thumb) then you end up opening the item instead. Can I just get you to stop recommending stuff to me? I’m not sure what algorithm you use but the recommendations are horrible. 5. Translations are rarely ever correct. Give up here and just license Google’s translator. I’m not saying Google Translate is good, but it would at least be correct more than your translations are. There are more, I’m sure. But we will stop here.
Hate speech from other LinkedIn members and employees
by Cherra Hardy on 2020/10/02 06:42
Not a safe place to have a professional opinion in most professions. Especially if you are a women. LinkedIn does not respect women whom have professional scientific reasoning and professional opinions that vary from the political slant posted by either a member or otherwise linkedin; however LinkedIn will continue to push the political slant into your feed continually inviting you to acknowledge the political topic which is slanted and not academically or professionally sound. If you don’t like it and if you contribute your intelligent, professional and academically sound comment LinkedIn members state hate things to a person such as Members stating hate statement to me and others I have witnessed ). Very disappointed in the lack of professionalism from LinkedIn employees whom allow the members and themselves to be so hateful to women and others on LinkedIn whom state professional scientific academically sound verbiage on a topic.
A suggestion to the development team
by i.zayd on 2020/01/29 01:04
Dear Team, The app has been developed nicely and is very user friendly. Everything’s great. There’s one feature that would really help out, I am usually/mostly at work and have less time to watch videos, if there was a feature where I could save it to view later that would be amazing, I could just save the video/video link and go home and watch it instead of scrolling down and search for that post. Just like facebook app has the option to save the videos/video link to a certain ‘watch later’ folder. I really expect the team to work on it. Other than that, it’s good. Kudos to the developers!
Good app but bad recent changes
by mugnum_parts on 2019/03/08 22:38
LinkedIn is a great professional app and I love how I can work on my career and look for opportunities using it! Haven’t had any weird glitches with it yet that downgraded my experience. I do have to deduct some points though for recent changes. The messages button was moved to the upper right and in its place on the bottom middle of the screen is the add a post button. This seems like a worse UI experience because I know I check and respond to messages far more than I post up a message and it’s kinda awkward to move the messages button up there. I also find that I can’t swipe to the right to go back to the last page I was on. Instead, I usually have to tap the back arrow in the upper left, which again, could be improved.
Great but...
by Eagle33199 on 2018/11/28 16:11
The app is generally the only way I interact with LinkedIn, and it works well for what I need it. However, while I appreciate the alerts most of the time, ever since this last update I've gotten alerts several times a day. When opening the app, the alert ends up asking me if I know someone... And it's been the same individual every single time. And every time, I dismiss it because I don't know them. It's gotten to the point where I seriously want to turn off alerts for the app, which would significantly decrease it's usefulness. Up until this last update, it was just fine. Now it's begging for attention that I really don't want to give it.
Watch out for Premium Trial!!
by GREEK 2U on 2018/05/11 23:24
The mobile version lacks so many of the desktop version features such as privacy features and profile customization. However, what really bothers me is that LinkedIn uses this difference to their financial advantage so you cannot cancel a Premium subscription from your device even if they allow you to subscribe from your phone easily. You also get no notification when the Premium trial is ending so you get charged abruptly. If you miss the subscription cancellation date, LinkedIn will offer no refunds even if late by an hour!! Really? Update: The LinkedIn team reached out to me as shown below to offer support. Alas, it was all just lip service. When I reached out, they simply confirmed the limitations I had originally complained about without any real assistance offered.
App needs work
by missingmodule on 2020/03/12 17:07
I always use this app, however it’s not without its issues. I’ve contacted customer support about the number of jobs I’ve applied to being way off. This makes it difficult for tracking. After several of the same responses I always get from them whenever an issue is raised, “did you try deleting and reinstalling?” “What version and medium of the app are you using?” I’ve listed screenshots, very detailed notes that answers all that but it’s always the same generic questions they read off of like a script. Finally, I got a message that said, “we’re aware of the issue but are not pursuing a resolution right now.” So when it comes to tracking the specific jobs I’ve applied to, it’s a complete wash.
Must Have LinkedIn
by markbyrn on 2020/08/20 13:24
I think of LinkedIn as business knowledge career centric Facebook. Unlike Facebook, it tends to be more professional with less negative behavior. The feeds while not as well organized as Facebook, tend to provide more useful or pertinent information. A premium subscription is useful if you're actively looking for a job or you want to make use of LinkedIn Learning to improve your skill sets. The mobile version of LinkedIn is much less cluttered than the desktop version although I noticed I see promoted posts (adverts) even though I have premium; not sure if that's a bug or premium doesn't prevent adverts.
Doesn’t show Jobs you’ve Applied for!
by Chattysassy10 on 2020/07/22 15:21
Don’t plan on an easy time keeping track of the jobs you’ve applied for. I had applied for at least a dozen jobs. A couple days later I went to look for more jobs and check on the jobs I had already applied to. But under the “Jobs Applied” tab, there were ZERO jobs listed. Oh and I’m pretty sure I looked like an idiot when I accidentally applied for the same job twice since LinkedIn doesn’t tell you if you applied for the job yet or not. I emailed customer service and they took a week to get back to me. Here is the response: “Please note that only when you apply for Easy apply jobs. If you are applying Jobs on the external website, it will not show up in the applied Jobs section. Aishwarya Member Success Consultant” DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND USE INDEED! That app/site keeps track of EVERY job you’ve applied to and if you happen upon the same job listing later on it TELLS YOU that you’ve already applied to that one. Indeed is so helpful and much better organized. And you don’t have to see the “newsfeed” from other people posting about their own job. I’m sorry, but why would I care if a guy from high school who never talked to me is posting about his career that has nothing to do with mine?!
Linkedin App is a must have for anyone in business at any level
by Keithrube1 on 2017/10/14 19:05
When Linkedin first introduced an app I’ll admit I was sceptical. I was leery because I’ve experienced many many websites attempting to make life easier with a new app and they fall on their face. This particular app is probably one of the easiest to maneuver and it allows me to stay connected easily with notifications and simple maneuvering around the site. I choose to be a Premier member and the benefits are well worth the money. I love linked in. I’ve become friends worldwide not only for the industry I’m in but also personal friends with multitudes or different interests. Get the app.
Performance issues - always loading, rarely loads
by jt_alias on 2020/01/13 23:55
I love LinkedIn as an app however lately - over the last few months - the app has become so slow it’s almost unusable. Simple searches that used to return response in seconds now take minutes and often throw an error and don’t come back at all. Pretty much any action off the main landing page has not worked for me, returning the “oops it’s not you it’s us” error and it happens across mobile app and website. Often times I get the never ending spinner, with an ultimate failure error message. While I love LinkedIn - it’s not working - and hasn’t for weeks and I haven’t seen any acknowledgment of the issue which I have to imagine is widespread. Send help! Also please note that I installed the latest app on iPhone XR but no change :(
Frustrated! Tired of app crashing constantly.
by Bunty1286 on 2018/09/27 02:56
This app constantly crashes on uploading posts with photos and video. The effort that it takes to write a post goes to waste as it crashes more than 90% of the time. I am using iPhone X, so hardware should not be an excuse for this issue. I would like to hear what the developers have to say about the problem. This problem has been an issue for at least last 2 years. I have installed the app multiple time but no luck. I don’t use the app anymore but sometime while traveling I have no other option. I am not sure why such a basic functionality is not resolved on this platform. Is it too hard for LinkedIn to figure this out?? Developers, can you provide me with an answer? UPDATE 1: Developer asked to submit a ticket on LinkedIn website with app version and iOS version.
BEWARE - Terrible customer service and awful refund policy.
by Lora2424 on 2017/12/02 07:34
I was tricked into paying $135(!!!) for a “premium” subscription that has absolutely no value to me. I assumed that the free trial would end because I never received a single email or notification about the upcoming subscription renewal after signing up for a free trial last month. I tried to find a place to cancel the subscription in the app and on the website with no luck. Now LinkedIn refuses to refund the payment. I am appalled. For a company that feigns interest in professional success, they have absolutely no sense of what providing good customer service entails. Auto renewing an expensive subscription without notice and without asking for permission is sneaky and conniving. Then refusing to refund the payment is insane. I am severely disappointed in LinkedIn and will be sure to warn my employees, colleagues, and friends.
Love the app minus the constant crashing!
by cktriano1 on 2019/05/10 15:23
LinkedIn is wonderful and I’ve loved the website for almost two decades and I’ve loved the app for years. Well, that is until recently. Over the past few months, it does nothing but crash, crash, crash! Every time I do anything more than browse through newsfeeds or search for profiles/jobs, it crashes. Try to write an article on the app...crash! Try to apply to a job...almost always crashes! Try to download or save something from the app....I can guarantee it will crash! Please get this fixed so everyone from baby boomers to millennials and today’s college kiddos can utilize LinkedIn where they need it most....on their mobile device. Many thanks!
What Happened?????
by Irie's Pie! on 2018/06/19 17:54
I lived LinkedIn until a few weeks ago when I started getting notifications and solicitation from them via my work email asking if I wanted to join our network. After joining, it didn’t make sense to me to have two professional LinkedIn accounts. Of course my personal account was more prominent with a complete profile and a vast network. Once I merged the accounts, that all disappeared!!! I was left with the account attached to my work email and no profile. I’ve been looking on the website to see if I can get this corrected, but as in most cases there isn’t a was to get “LinkedIn” to a real person!!! Not sure if I even want to re-build another profile and network!
Feedback complain
by rlrescue on 2018/05/24 19:34
Although a majority of the individuals I have connected with through this app respect the Proper use of the app to connect with others that wish to be connected with. There are a select few that feel this tool is best used for making cold sales calls. My issue is this there is no way in this app to report they are using your email address and emailing you separate of the LinkedIn app in an effort to get you to buy or purchase one of their products. The way they behave on LinkedIn may not violate the terms and conditions but there is no way to identify The problem of a separate email from your connection to the folks at Linkedin so they can’t go about dealing with them appropriately.
I love this APP
by christopherokeefe on 2020/10/14 20:01
There are so many professionals at your fingertips like for example, I am a professional singer and I have access to contacting via messenger or adding them people like CEO of universal studio recording studio label and def jam’Atlantic records and there are DJ’s and producers and a lot more then this. I also want to mention the groups you can be added to like universal artist group,where you can post your music for all executives all 33,000 in the group to see your stuff and also work with top professionals if your serious about getting a foot in the door at any company this app is the place to be ....much love LinkedIn
Horrible user continuity and takes advantage of user data
by Lena Kay on 2019/02/21 18:30
I use LinkedIn on my Mac computer all the time and used to be signed in to the app on my previous iPhone. When getting a new phone, every other app was able to use facial detection to let me sign in, while LinkedIn was the ONLY app to reject my facial recognition and force me to take a “not a robot” test to collect AI data on if users can identify pictures. Is it necessary for me to take this free data AI collection test for Microsoft/LinkedIn over and over again every time I get my password wrong. Is there a reason why this is the only app that won’t accept my facial recognition, while every other app does, when moving from Mac to my iPhone to log in??? So annoying and ridiculous. Stop taking advantage of your users by forcing us to take AI tests for you to collect data.
Love LinkedIn but wishing you would fix the avatar issue
by LinsiCase on 2020/04/07 05:01
So I want to update my profile picture, but every time I try, it readjusts the color of the photo, and makes it super dark. No matter what image I select. I’ve tried several times and closing the app and taking it off, and it continues to do it. Definitely a minor issue, but annoying for sure. Other than that, I absolutely love LinkedIn. It’s an easy, fun way to connect to the business world and to network and build relationships across different markets and industries. It’s an absolute genius of a Social Media platform. Kudos to its creators. (Now I only wish the premium was cheaper 😂)
I cannot stand it
by Tootoon31 on 2018/09/10 11:20
Although the app is good in general, it just constantly fails to load contents. The different pages either don’t update or load partially or just don’t load at all! Sometimes I want to type a message to someone or update my profile, only to find out later that the message was lost or the updates were not made. It’s happening on both my iPhone and iPad. I’ve contacted the support team several times, each time they seem to fix the problem but only for a few days. It keeps coming back! I’m even a premium member but that doesn’t seem to make any difference, it’s just so frustrating. I’m starting to use other means like Glassdoor more and more... Conclusion: the app can be great but for me it’s totally unreliable, I just can’t recommend it for anyone who needs to seriously work with it.
Please Fix
by Jarek Bannister on 2017/09/23 16:45
I am trying to connect to a lot of fitness professionals and it takes 10+ minutes for the requests to send after I clicked on it. Then if I switch screens it stops sending them. So I have to resend requests over and over. It also covers up the search bar so I can’t do anything else. Then when clicking the little circles to add someone it always will jump to their page because my fingers are too fat maybe making it less sensitive around the circle or making it a bigger button would be better. It just is a nuisance and I can’t get back because the back button is covered up by the requests being sent pop up. Fix those problems and I’d say 5 star.
Just another Facebook or Instagram now
by Bradwiththebadhaircut on 2020/09/26 06:50
Just opened Facebook, I mean Instagram, oh no I mean LinkedIn. The latest update has remodeled the user interface to make it appear more like Facebook or Instagram. I have always loved the professionalism of LinkedIn and the feature that made it less like a social network. I’m not here for peoples live videos but more for professional opinions, relationships, and experiences. I am a multiple-times-a-day user, frequently browsing my industry network and making new and valuable connections. That won’t be as easy anymore with the latest move by LinkedIn to conform to the likes of Facebook and LinkedIn. Would love to learn more about the intelligence and user surveys that led to this latest change because they were obviously flawed.
Could be better
by spicy chica linda on 2019/10/30 20:05
First and most importantly, there should be a rate/review a company option! This would allow current, past & possible new candidates transparent reviews about every company! A competitor, Glassdoor has this feature! Past associates would be able to shine light on issues they encountered while working there as well. Secondly, what’s with the constant LinkedIn members flooding message inbox to get one to go premium? I would like a notification feature where I can more easily tell when I have new messages that way I can keep track and respond in a more timely fashion! Many messages from employers are lost in the shuffle of my LinkedIn messages overall.
Cannot message potentials connects before accepting
by ricegator on 2019/12/18 19:00
The evil money-grabbers at LinkedIn have removed the ability to message for free somebody who has requested to join your network. For privacy and security it is necessary that we be able to message these people to make sure they are who they say they are or if we don’t recognize them, to ask them where we know them from. As a free user I am now forced to accept the connection before sending the message, exposing my personal info to a potential stranger. The goblins as LinkedIn need to value our privacy and security over our money by reenabling the reply (don’t accept yet) option on connection requests. If you agree, please also give a one star review (you can even copy and paste mine) so we can inform LinkedIn that they cannot get away with this.
Stop with the excessive notifications
by Jh5320 on 2018/10/15 12:52
Update: I can’t send the screenshots to you with the glitch through this app. I’ve emailed you through the actual desktop site with this problem, asking for an email address to show you this issue. Nothing has changed and no one has contacted me. App will be deleted. I turned off all notifications because I was getting too many. I was tired of it. Now, I get a notification that I have no notifications set up. That’s. The. Point. Stop with this ridiculous amount of notifications. Fix it, otherwise, I’m deleting the app altogether. Update again: Since I just got another response from LinkedIn about this problem, here’s the update: I can’t send you a screenshot, see point above. The app has been deleted off my phone for months now.
Completely irresponsible with push notifications
by Fraxtil on 2017/10/03 18:51
I've turned off notifications for everything except the few things I care about (invitations to connect, messages, anything else that pertains directly to me). I still receive push notifications for superfluous events like "trending news articles" on a daily basis. The app is designed to have as many notification types as possible, and I've turned off more obscure notifications than I can remember. If you turn one off, the notification settings linked from the dismissed message only shows you what you've turned off, with no option to turn off all the other notifications you'll eventually receive. Completely irresponsible and annoying. I'll be reserving LinkedIn for the desktop from now on.
A great app/website for shameless self-promoters
by Shame on me? on 2020/09/01 14:49
I started my account 6 years ago in hopes it would help me land a new job. I found a new job but no thanks to LinkedIn (another web based job site helped with that). The content consists mostly of posts from people shamelessly promoting themselves or from people trying to spin their videos of children or animals into some kind of life altering message. Now the geniuses (at LinkedIn) are taking it upon themselves to change my chosen location on my profile unless I tell them not to. That’s seriously messed up. How about suggesting I change it? What’s really disturbing is that my phone does not show any location services that can be switched off on the app. Honestly thinking about deleting.
LinkedIn and Microsoft are not interested in your feedback
by Ewu777 on 2020/06/02 23:42
I spent 20 minutes looking for a way to provide app feedback on the app and on the website to no avail. Regardless, this is the actual feedback - I have been missing messages since I turned off badges. When I turned badges on to address this, I was inundated with LinkedIn's notification happy feed. I would like to see these things when I log in, but not interested in them being included in the badge alert count. My only option was to turn off badges and revert to email notifications for new messages. It seems like a missed opportunity, and even more so if they make it impossible for those interested in improving the platform to provide feedback.
Beware of the “free” premium auto renewal..
by H0rs3 luv3r on 2019/05/04 00:10
Before I start.. this is more a review for Apple/iTunes subscription practices than LinkedIn.. so everywhere you see LinkedIn, you can basically fill-in any auto renewal subscription app.. WATCH OUT!! If you’re interested in trying out the free Premium version, you better be paying attention because if you’re not, you're going to slapped with the $65 monthly subscription charge before you even figure out what the difference is between Premium and the free version! I can think of a TON of other things I’d rather spend $65 on! And if you do get charged, GOOD LUCK getting Apple/iTunes to issue you a refund... I think they literally flip a coin. You’re likely stuck with another 30 days. Maybe you can use the extra 30 days figure out the difference..SOUR APPLE!
Quit messing with the app!
by donnaray on 2017/11/20 03:46
And STOP asking me to link my contacts—never going to happen in a million years! I give up... What happened to the swipe feature to ignore/delete people whom I don’t want to send an invite to?? UPDATE: The response from LinkedIn makes absolutely no sense! I’m not asking for some new “improvement”—I want them to return to the logical functionality the app used to have. Do they honestly expect people to keep scrolling through this exhaustive list of names of others they don’t want to connect with, without a deletion method??? UPDATE 2: The latest response from LinkedIn still makes no sense! Again, this is not some kind of “new improvement” I’m requesting. It’s the way the app USED to work and NOW the functionality is GONE. PLEASE BRING IT BACK!!!! UPDATE 3: Thank you for bringing back the feature of being able to “x” the people I don’t want to connect with. But, the new huge box layout is awful because you see less people on the screen at once and can’t read as much about them without clicking on their profile. Just put it back to the way it used to be please!!
