LinkedIn stamps out prostitution

There’s one occupation LinkedIn “isn’t so keen about.”

There’s one occupation LinkedIn “isn’t so keen about,” said Eli Epstein in MSN.com. The professional networking site, which advertises its ability to foster collaboration among its members, recently revised its user agreement to shoo away content that “promotes escort services or prostitution—even if it is legal where you are located.” Although the site has always banned any references to unlawful activities, it’s “run into a gray area in places abroad where prostitution is legal,” including much of South America and parts of Europe and Australia. Currently, “prostitution” is also a skill that can be endorsed, although LinkedIn users who self-identify as experts in the subject often work in law enforcement and religious ministries. Other illegal “skills” found on the site include “extortion,” “drug trafficking,” and “drunk driving.”
