Jeremiah Owyang recently re-posted a look back at a report he did with Forrester in 2009, predicting, or rather forecasting the social changes from 2009-2014.

Check out out talking about fake LinkedIn profiles. 
 
Fake LinkedIn profiles are prolific. They are created by shady characters to connect with people so they can have access to more profiles on the LinkedIn platform.

Do you know how to spot a fake profile? In this episode of SourceCon Live, +Jim Durbin will demonstrate how to identify a fake profile and walk us through the process he used to uncover a few organizations guilty of creating hundreds of fake profiles. 
This Hangout On Air is hosted by Jeremy Roberts, SPHR. The live video broadcast will begin soon.
