LinkedIn (LNKD) Plans to Cut Down on Spam Email
LinkedIn (NYSE: LNKD) posted the following to its official blog on Monday:
Many of you have told us that you receive too many emails from LinkedIn. We’re also not immune to the late night talk show host jokes. We get it. And we’ve recently begun to make changes so that the emails you receive are more infrequent and more relevant.
Here are two of the most recent examples:
- If you are getting too many invitations to connect, we have begun to send you a single weekly digest in place of individual emails.
- If you subscribe to several LinkedIn Groups, we are aggregating the updates from those groups into a single email.
The results so far have been very encouraging. For every 10 emails we used to send, we’ve removed 4 of them. Already, member’s complaints have been cut in half. And this is just the beginning.
We also want to remind you that we provide the ability to control which emails you want to receive at your desired frequency. All of our emails have an unsubscribe link at the bottom, and you can visit your Settings page to manage your email experience to your liking.
When it comes to your inbox, the message has been received: Less is more. We welcome your feedback as we continue to make improvements.
