I thought you might be interested in this LinkedIn post I just did.
About the post:
The hashtag “#Creativity” is one of the top ten most followed hashtags on LinkedIn (with 25 million followers).
The problem is that, a big chunk of the posts (>75%!) are not original content about creativity. They are irrelevant, salesy and/or just lazy people posting stolen content from others.
Now, imagine if there was a way to FILTER the posts published under “#creativity” to ONLY show posts that are:
a) relevant (posts that are actually about creativity)
b) not salesy (posts that are focusing on giving value, not selling the author)
c) original (posts with original content instead of just being stolen content from others.)
Welcome to “#HashtagCreativity” – ONLY POSTS TAGGED WITH “#CREATIVITY” THAT ARE ACTUALLY ABOUT CREATIVITY.
A curated list of LinkedIn posts published under the popular hashtag “#creativity” last week. Posts that were totally irrelevant, just about selling and/or clearly not original content (ie stolen content) have been excluded.
(If you support this idea of celebrating actual posts about creativity – instead of posts from people just trying to hijack the #creativity hashtag, then support this initiative <#hashtagcreativity> by liking it, commenting, or sharing it, and I will continue to dig through all the trash posts to find you the gold).
Would love to know your thoughts – post your comment here.
