Our old friend the pumpkin. Is it just me, or does anyone else here think he's getting a bum rap? I mean, sure things have gone a little overboard in the last several years.

LinkedIn started as a wonderful tool to professionally develop with avenues such as social selling, recruiting and B2B advertising, but now it is in a dark place. Kind of like that place the Cleveland Cavaliers went after LeBron James left. This is our fault a lot more than LinkedIn's.
