Obama Gets LinkedIn

I logged into LinkedIn this morning to find a new feature, the "Featured Question" with a new question from none other than Barack Obama. Something banal about how a president could help small businesses (someone of his staff must have decided LinkedIn appeals to small businesspeople and entrepreneurs)

Clicking further, I found that you can join his "group" and display the nifty button above on your own LinkedIn page.

My reaction was slight annoyance. Stop commercializing LinkedIn and all that. I don't want to know who my LinkedIn friends are voting for. I just want to know where they worked.

Remember Barry, if you're running for president, you are a brand. And Your Brand Is Not My Friend™.
