Yeah, But Not That One
No sooner had I accepted an invitation from Ed DonFrancesco, manager of Edina Realty’s Parkway office, to join his LinkedIn network, than I saw this question at the top of my LinkedIn home page:
“Looking for an Ed.D?”
That’s odd, I thought — didn’t I just click “accept?”
The mystery was solved when I clicked on the question — which linked to an ad for a college promoting its Doctorate of Education program.
Either that’s a helluva coincidence, or, LinkedIn’s search software is interpreting key words a little too literally (and yes, colleges and universities are doing a TON of online advertising these days).
