As a social media platform for professionals and business people, LinkedIn has strict rules and regulations that users need to follow. Professional conduct and behavior are not only expected but also required. A good rule of thumb to follow is that if a certain behavior would be frowned upon in an actual working environment, then it would not be appropriate on LinkedIn either.
Those who are using LinkedIn for the purposes of lead generation will want to avoid any form of violation as it could cause their account to get restricted. A LinkedIn account restriction will significantly hinder anyone’s social selling efforts. It is best to stay on your best behavior when on LinkedIn.
‘LinkedIn jail’ is just a term for having a restriction on one’s account placed by LinkedIn. It is a serious matter as it can have a negative impact on a user’s lead generation and career progress. The good news is that a restriction can be lifted—but the best strategy is still to avoid ending up there in the first place.
