I've been backing away slowly from LinkedIn.  I think they
are giving recruiters too much power and the recruiters
are more than just a nuisance.  Before that I backed away
slowly from Google and now use https://duckduckgo.com
.  Possibly Google and LinkedIn are partnering..

I might advise the OP to become an entrepreneur and
start a social media site.
