An article published today by TechCrunch suggests you could get a fake LinkedIn account to gain the online reputation of a network marketing entrepreneur.
The article, written by Tech Crunch’s Adam Gandy, was posted today on LinkedIn’s website.
TechCrunch’s article suggests that the fake account could be used to gain a reputation of being a network product marketing consultant, or, alternatively, a network engineering specialist, among other things.
The fake account is not an official account, but a fake profile created by a network member, and the person who created it has a profile on LinkedIn, TechCrunch notes.
The LinkedIn page for the fake network marketing consultant looks like this: I’m a network engineer with a few months of experience.
I’ve been with LinkedIn since 2013 and have been working with a handful of network marketing clients.
I’m in my late 20s and am interested in network marketing.
Ive been working in the field for over 10 years, so Ive had the opportunity to be around a lot of great people.
I have a passion for network marketing and have learned a lot from a lot people.
The post describes how to create a fake network engineering profile on the network marketing platform LinkedIn.
The profile says the following: I love to collaborate and learn from my peers.
I am an expert in networking, design, and web development.
I also have a degree in engineering, so have a solid grounding in how network systems work.
I believe that network marketing is the fastest growing business area in the world.
I love connecting people, and my network of connections has allowed me to be part of some of the largest and most influential brands in the industry.
In fact, I believe my experience working with the largest companies and leading network marketing teams in the past few years has given me a huge amount of insight into the success of network projects and products.
It also seems to imply that the network engineering consultant is likely someone who is interested in networking.
The Network Engineering Consultant LinkedIn profile looks like the one shown in the TechCrunch article.
Tech Crunch also notes that the Network Marketing Specialist is not a LinkedIn user, nor is it a registered account.
However, it does not appear to be a real profile, and it appears to be an automated profile created in the background.
It’s also possible that the account is fake.
“The network marketing expert appears to have used a bot or a botnet, which would make sense considering the way they’ve been able to obtain and maintain so many accounts,” Gandy wrote.
TechCrunch also noted that LinkedIn is notifying people about the fake LinkedIn profile.
However the profile is being shared on LinkedIn and other social media platforms.
“As a network expert, you may want to use caution when signing up on LinkedIn,” TechCrunch said.
It is unknown if the network expert has used LinkedIn to sign up for the network, or if this is a new account.
It does not seem to be clear if the account has been used for other purposes.
Techcrunch also pointed out that there is a chance that the false account could have been created by the same network expert.
However this may not be the case.
Gandy’s post suggests that LinkedIn will update the profile with a disclaimer and link back to the article if it is removed.
The network marketing specialist could also be a fraudster.
It would be impossible for the LinkedIn profile to have been crafted by someone who was trying to deceive LinkedIn.
However it is possible that a network professional could have created the profile to gain notoriety and possibly gain a network reputation.
