LinkedIn Bans Prostitutes From Using The Website

Posted in: ,


LinkedIn, the website for connecting professionally, has banned users from promoting prostitution services on their website. LinkedIn just rolled out several changes to its privacy policy and user agreement, and if like me, you're on LinkedIn, you'll have seen the notice on their website. Most of the changes seem to be simplifications of the usual fine print, though one new item stands out and appears to be new. LinkedIn says users must not;

i. Even if it is legal where you are located, create profiles or provide content that promotes escort services or prostitution.

This kind of ban, according to ReadWrite, is not completely new. "LinkedIn previously forbade advertising "unlawful" services. However, prostitution is legal in some European countries, and escort services fall into a legal gray area in many jurisdictions." Also, the clarification became necessary, as it seems some LinkedIn members were being sneaky and offering escort and paid for sex through their professional profiles.
