Is the Pope on LinkedIn?

Have you ever tried to Link somebody out? Yes, Steve O’Keeffe would like to remove you from his professional network. Well, it ain’t that easy. In fact, as near as I can tell, it’s impossible. And, how about logging off LinkedIn - getting rid of your profile? Ya, you can forget about it. I’m afraid LinkedIn is like a tattoo - InkedIn if you will (it’s for the rest of your life). And, sadly, social media is necromancy - even if you croak, you’ll live on on LinkedIn.
Turning the dial on the radio, I heard that Benedict XVI recently stated that Catholicism is forever. Once you’re baptized, that’s it. You can’t log out. Even if you become a Muslim or a Jew or, heaven forbid, a Protestant, you’re still a Catholic when you get to the pearly gates. 
Guess in social media and religion, it’s all about making it sticky and defending market share. And, yes, I must confess, I did search for the Pope on LinkedIn. There’s the man with the red shoes. Figure I’ll send him a LinkedIn request. If ya can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em. Hell, maybe I should go ahead and friend the Almighty - and cut out the middle man?

Opt in today to keep stirring IT up.
