Hello, and welcome back to another episode of the Economical Rice Podcast. Today’s show continues from the previous one. Where I had pledged to put in more effort on Social Media, there was always one obstacle that I could never really get around, LinkedIn.

The thing was, I could never understand those people with the incredibly polished profiles, headers, summaries, and endless lists of articles. It didn’t seem real, how could anyone write themselves up in that way that made them seem like a complete narcissist? How does the website get by as a thinly-veiled excuse for an ego-trip?

And so, curious as ever, I dug a little deeper into the LinkedIn story, and discovered that the ‘monster’ that had created this entire website, wasn’t really much of a monster at all.
