A few years back LinkedIn was enjoying a monopoly position in Networking and Job-hunting online space. 

Though, now as the digital world of Social Media is going under rapid transformations to meet the ever-growing demands of human expression, LinkedIn’s position in the digital networking space has completely flipped. 

Every other digital Platform whether Whatsapp or Slack, is nurturing thousands of close-knitted communities, where their users can engage on a deeper level, share profound professional experiences, and build more valuable relations.

But, to make your name on any given platform, you need time to be able to focus on understanding the peculiarity of the platform that you are on, and feel comfortable with what is required of you to engage on these platforms.

Not all of us are comfortable in front of the camera or in writing LONG personal excerpts from our lives. 

So, if you have found yourself a better platform to grow and engage other than LinkedIn, and seek help to permanently delete your LinkedIn account. You arrived at the right place!
