#TalkTuesday: LinkedIn & "Setting P"

By setting P, I mean talking to someone online with the purpose of taking things further romantically which might not necessarily translate to sex.
Now that we are clear on my definition of setting P, let’s get straight to the tech talk of the day.
With over 380 million members in  200 countries, Linkedin is the most popular professional network on the Internet devoted to social networking for professional advancement. However, my attention was drawn to the latest happenings on LinkedIn with regards to women getting hit by men and vice versa.
To further back up my findings, A Charlotte Proudman made headlines early last month after she tweeted an unwelcoming message she received on LinkedIn.

According to her,

I would rather be complimented on my achievements than my face. One I worked hard for, the other I was born with.

This raised so many issues online, many believed there is nothing wrong with a man complimenting anyone on any social network platforms, LinkedIn included. While others felt you shouldn’t mix business with pleasure especially on LinkedIn.
So what if you meet this lady or guy on LinkedIn  that you really like and you can’t get her Twitter or Facebook page, Will it be a bad thing to send a message, a setting p message to her on LinkedIn?
What is your take on this?

    That woman should park abeg.. There is really no big deal .. If I see a man I like.. I compliment .. If he doesn’t like it.. He should sue me and make me famous.. Oshisko

    Itz a business network, business related discussions should be discussed and that is the right thing to do. imagine having applied for jobs and you are waiting impatiently for replies and what you get is a p setting message… not kool

    Hmm, I feel her pain, but my people will say: if we were to scratch where the skin itches as much as it does, we’ll hit bone. #calm_down_lady.
