5 annoying Linkedin Usability Bugs! Does Linkedin care to fix?

This post was originally posted in Linkedin Publishing platform.

In this post I am going to write about some LinkedIn bugs that are annoying me for a long time or don't stand good from the usability standpoint. So here we go with the list.

Numbering doesn't work

Irritation Quotient: 5/10
Justification: As an upcoming blogger / writer it really pisses me off when I see that the contents that I typed in are not exactly in the same format as I typed. Why? Because presentation is the first thing that people notice. A blog post is only read if it appears beautiful / presentable (at least for upcoming bloggers/writers). OK. So what's the actual issue. Whenever I write few points and number them in the answers (Let's say 1,2,3,...) to group discussions, those numbers get displayed as 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1... Oh my goodness! I am certainly better than this at numbering.

Status Update takes a long time (for the first time when i sign)

Irritation Quotient: 3/10
Justification: Whenever I do a status update, it takes a while before it shows up on the timeline. What's worse, there is no indication that I have updated something even after typing and pressing the Share button. But when I press Share the second time, it gives a message "The same message can't be posted twice"
