Using your own images for quotes

Honestly people on LinkedIn using their own images and putting quotes on it, is cringe as fuck.



That is all


EDIT:

Maybe if you were an actual influencer then yea I guess you get a pass. At least have a large following lol.

What's even more annoying is when they post a quote that's blatantly obvious or not actually saying anything. Like "You can't make cold calls if you are sleeping." I never saw this one but I wouldn't be shocked if it appeared on the feed sooner rather than later.

Not a joke. I went on LI just now to see how fast one of these quotes would pop up on my timeline. 5 posts in and I get the lord of all cringe, Gary V:

"Test & Learn
Test & Learn

You cant make this stuff up.

Not sure if anyone gets a pass for this haha Maybe Oprah?

If you manage your own social media account, you don't get to include your photo alongside quotes. If it's obvious you have a social media manager, then maybe.

What concerns me more is the hundreds of dumb asses who agree with these ridiculous “influencers”. Is the problem the asshats posting, or the dozens of idiots who reply encouraging them.

On one hand, I have a good buddy who just started in real estate and did a photo shoot, creating content he can post as a realtor. But yes on the side of “hey let’s photoshop the shit out of this selfie with quotes about positivity” it’s cringy as fuck

I'll agree with the cringe here.  Linked In doesn't seem to be the place for that type of stuff.

It's easier to trick people into thinking you're good at sales rather than actually being good at sales.
