I use your website more than 3 hours a day, have more than 9500 connections and manage a group of 5300 edit: 5500. I’d like to have my say.
1- Display no more than 500 connections. I never got the point of that, the sooner it will go away the better I’ll feel
2- “Someone in that industry from Europe saw your profile”. This is very upsetting and useless. You say it breaches your terms to tell me more. Xing, which appears to be a direct competitor, tells me also what my profile visitor had for dinner.
3- Group Discussions. As it is it is a nightmare to manage, plan old forums would be much easier to manage when you have thousands of people in a group.
