Linkedin Endorsements - skill spam?
I'm getting a lot of these Linkedin endorsements, often from people who barely know me let alone know what my business skills are.

There is a large highly engaged sector of the social media world who follow a 'you scratch my back' approach to this sort of engagement.

This then shows up on your profile and Linkedin is often cited as a recruitment tool.

Are potential employers in danger of being mislead by all of these dodgy endorsements?

If employers discern between applicants on the basis of LinkedIn endorsements then they deserve what they get.
