LinkedIn Admitting Minors Risk to Professional Service
LinkedIn, which was previously a business orientated social networking service has announced it will admit minors, down to the age of 13. This change is being characterized as being for "Smart, ambitious students are already thinking about their futures". At the same time LinkedIn launched "University Pages" on LinkedIn, for students and alumni to connect. However, having non-adults on LinkedIn will cause considerable problems for the existing professional adult users. I suggest LinkedIn provide a way to separate the student and professional users.
