It takes a 10-sec glimpse at the LinkedIn page to realize how productive, successful, and virtually unstoppable the people on there are. They did it all—got major investment, took their company profits through the roof, made sure their employees feel like literally the most loved people on this planet, raised six kids, went bankrupt, and started life all over again.

But there’s something suspiciously woke and hyper-inspirational going on on this platform, and the Twitter page “The State of LinkedIn” is dedicated to exposing the not-so-pretty side of these posts.

“LinkedIn is a breeding ground for lies & brown-nosing. Exposing the worst. We are in no way associated with LinkedIn, so class us as a parody,” states their description and 174.4K followers couldn't agree more. So let’s see some of the screenshots right below!

To find out more about The State Of LinkedIn, Bored Panda reached out to its creator @Brooke_Smedley, who, along with the co-creator @HarryBarnes1, has been working on the project roughly for three years now. “The State Of LinkedIn originally came as a spin-off from one of our other pages, @_DHOTYA, where we found the submissions surrounding LinkedIn-based scenarios.”

The authors then came up with the idea of creating its own page, then it took off from there. “The page is roughly about 2-3 years old and has always had a slow and gradual increase, we’ve never really had a massive influx of followers at once,” Brooke_Smedley said and added: “it seems a lot of people share a common interest in the strange posts that you can come across on LinkedIn.”

When asked what they think of the LinkedIn culture, Brooke said that “I don’t use LinkedIn, mainly because within my job I don’t really have a need to. However, I can understand how it can be important for some people within their working environments.”

“I think it’s changed from what it was originally designed to do and has turned more into an attempt of a business Facebook where people are more interested in likes and engagements as opposed to what it was created for,” the creator of The State Of LinkedIn explained.

“People seem to get a handful of likes and comments and realize they’ll attract more engagement by following that approach,” Brooke concluded. The Twitter creator duo also runs a few more super popular Twitter pages like @StateOfSelling, @_StateOfFB, @_StateOfTweets and @_DHOTYA (“Didn’t Happen of the Year Awards”.)

You what? So this prick assumes that his interns should be poor, and punishes them for not being poor? How the f*** does a boss have anything to say about an employee's personal belongings anyway? It's insane how many people confuse wealth with personal worth.

My first thought is that this picture was taken in the shop and posted only to impress. The person doesn't even own this. If the jeweler wanted to know why the pic was taken it would be easy to explain: to show my fiancee, hubby, or other which watch to buy me. But I'd bet so many photos are taken they don't even question anymore.

Ok, I don't get what the big whoop is about an expensive watch. Sure, it looks fancy. Does it do anything else but give you the time? Does it shoot diamonds out of its side? Does it play a pleasant tune? Does it shout the time out loud, or prepare breakfast for you? Does it shine lasers? All it does is tell the time and sparkle a lot. ._.

I wear an $11 watch (£4.60) from Casio that has analog and digital and keeps time with a stopwatch and can wake me up in the morning. It has a black Velcro and leather band that can loosen when I want it to. It's waterproof. It has a ten year warranty on the battery. That Rolex is nothing more than a gold-encrusted piece of human excrement.
