Last week, I logged into Linked in to update my profile and accept new link invitations. I got a pop up asking me if I wanted to scan email to find people I'm already communicating with in email that are ALREADY on linked in. So, sure, yes.
Julie Lindsay had just told me that she had done it and found quite a few new people. I wanted a little scan of my personal gmail account.
Well, Linked in not only scanned my personal email – it also scanned my school email (which I didn't realize) it also put people on the list who AREN'T ON LINKED IN at all including:
- My disqus comment emails (which are generated for each disqus post)
- Some group email lists where I've made an email in my google apps for domain account that point to multiple people.
- How To Use LinkedIn Mail Without Being Spammy (thecustomercollective.com)
- Someone is sending spam from my email: what do I do? (onsoftware.en.softonic.com)
