Linkedin Error OR its an Upgrade to Control SPAM 23-Oct-2013
Today I was going normal LinkedIn in work and had noticed a change in the LinkedIn operations, mean the website has changed the way it used to work for example previously we used to share links and the title and description used to get fetched directly, but now if we add a url then the url meta is not fetched and also we are not able to share any url.
This could be a temporary issue as they might be upgrading system or might the doing some change in the backend part, OR majorly this could be their defense mechanism again SPAM
Currently not sure as what is the real reason for this change, let wait for few hrs or days and see if this is an issue or a temporary system upgrade
Below are few screenshots
You can see the loading gif, It take too much time to post a link, and
Later it shows that you have done a post with title as the URL.
This is what happens when you click the link, and after few trial and
Error and by using the back and forward button on browser you can
Edit the published post. And below is it how it looks, without a
Hyper link to the destination.
This is how it looks after editing
Again the error page when you click the live post title
Now with few trial and errors you are finally able to see the post
Live and comment on it
Again the same Error
