LinkedIn changes the notification settings for emails for all users by reducing the number of sent emails by 40%
LinkedIn just he said how he made some changes to the email notification system, which will reduce the number of emails that users receive with the default settings by 40%.
The announcement followed after users' complaints about years about the huge number of emails they receive from the social network on a weekly basis.
LinkedIn did consider the issue, but corrected it in such a way that it did not appear to have fixed anything and without advertising it to its users For a few years, users were able to adjust (and still do) frequency of emails received from the social network, using a special panel in their account.
The problem was that by default, users who just made a new account, or manually did not change their account settings, the option not to get notifications with emails being borrowed from dozens of emails per week.
"For every 10 emails we sent, we removed 4 from them."
Now the company even thinks of collecting and categorizing alerts and sending them once a week.
For beginners, invitations to connect to other users will be sent once a week from now on, and this will be the default setting, and if the user is logged into different groups, they will receive updates for all groups once, in an email instead of separate emails he has received so far.
This is great news for users who find this social network very useful for the job market, for their working relationships, for their professional pursuits. For its part, the company with this move hopes to stop being called by the Silicon Valley elite with the characterization "spammy social network," such as they called so far.
