LinkedIn updated its terms to ban prostitutes and escorts

quote:

Professional networking site LinkedIn updated its privacy policy and user agreement, and one particular clause now bans escorts and prostitutes from creating profiles promoting adult services.

According to the terms, users may not, "even if it is legal where you are located, create profiles or provide content that promotes escort services or prostitution."

Prostitution is a "skill" for which you can be endorsed by other users on the site, though the attribute also seems to apply to law firms, legal and advocacy groups, law enforcement and religious outreach groups.

Though some are surprised that sex workers use LinkedIn to build a network of clients from the site's 200 million users, it's no surprise to the many social media-savvy escorts themselves. CNNMoney last month covered sex workers who use the internet to grow their businesses, and many consider themselves entrepreneurs.

I think it's safe to say they're on the wrong side of history.

Exactly. They had all of us in my office join and now all I get is an endless stream of spam.
