Attorneys, gardeners, teachers or consultants. All sorts of professions are represented on LinkedIn. Just not the oldest profession. Not anymore.
In the professional networking site's brand-new user agreement, it makes very clear that prostitutes are now forbidden from shopping their wares on their site.
"Even if it is legal where you are located, create profiles or provide content that promotes escort services or prostitution."
Also of note: People were looking for prostitutes on LinkedIn? Well how 'bout that.
A searchfor "prostitution" right now on the site brings up a message asking "Did you mean prosecution?" Well no, but I suppose that is a related field.
LinkedIn's new rules arrive more than two years after virtual red light district Craigslist shut down its "adult services" section and could be a move to avoid the same kind of sketchy associations Craigslist has been battling for years.
So, does that mean social media savvy ladies of the night are now out of options? Apparently not. According to a survey of New York sex workers released in 2011, they find 25% of their business through Facebook.
