Got a notification from LinkedIn saying "You're one of the few experts who have been invited to collaborate on ..." I got curious and opened up the link.

Apparently, now instead of professional writers being paid to pen down their, usually, cohesive & authentic views, LinkedIn is trying out the idea of generating content using an LLM and then asking for free editorial services from users in exchange for "badges" 🤯 🤦‍♂️

This is cheap IMO. Even for LinkedIn.

What's happened to the "content team" at LinkedIn!?

So they go from paying people to provide a service, to convincing people providing them a free service on a ""omg you so smart" basis., got it. That makes sense.

Stop training these companies AI for free

I don't use LinkedIn unless I'm looking for a job.
