Q.) Why does LinkedIn tend to be more civil than other social media platforms?
Most people perceive that they may need to use LinkedIn to get a new job, raise money, attract clients or recruit top talent. Therefore, the vast majority of individuals find ways to discuss disagreements without getting ugly.
So if accountability leads to civility on LinkedIn, why can’t other platforms learn from this example?
For example, Web3.0 will make it possible for every individual—and all their posts— to be verified. Plus, each post will persist, so that we can always see everything each other said and when they said it.
Wouldn’t it be better if this sort of accountability created a more positive social discourse, rather than the government or random outlets deciding who gets to speak and when?
