LinkedIn Is Currently Solving One of Its Tarrying Login Problems
Social media platform LinkedIn is at the moment adding more procedures on the platform to help users easily verify the legitimacy of a profile as it continues to crack down on fake accounts and bots on the platform.
LinkedIn which is a Microsoft-owned social media and networking platform is now all set to roll out two additional verification steps this very week that will help users to confirm that they are who they claim.
Selected users on the platform soon will be able to verify their accounts on the platform using their phone number or work email account which other users will then be able to check in a new ‘About this profile’ section. There also will be information on the time the account was created and when last the information was updated.
LinkedIn Profile Boost
Oscar Rodriguez which is the VP of Product Management at LinkedIn on the blog of the company noted the “plan is to start with a limited number of companies”, with more being confirmed to be added in the future. With that bit of information, it now seems that LinkedIn will need to verify each company and also the domain that it uses for its email address before including them in the program.
The ‘About this profile’ section on the platform is also set to roll out more widely, with quicker access from other pages such as connection invitations and direct messages.
LinkedIn is trying to Help Users Avoid Spam Messages
This is all in an effort of LinkedIn to help users avoid spam messages, but the platform, however, promises that even more is going on behind the scenes, such as a new deep-learning-based model that is now set to determine whether profile pictures are AI-generated “without performing facial recognition or biometric analyses.”
The social media and networking platform also is cracking down on users who proactively seek to move conversations to other platforms such as WeChat and WhatsApp. Which is typically seen in cryptocurrency scams, LinkedIn will now display or show a warning message wherever it notices this type of activity.
