LinkedIn Prohibites Prostitutes Even if They Are Legal

LinkedIn overhauled its privacy policy in a big way. One little paragraph got though the most attention.

Honestly, who reads privacy policies? LinkedIn updated their privacy policy in a big way and also made it more accessible. The only aspect of the changes that raised though huge awareness is a paragraph about prostitutes and escort services.

LinkedIn has always prohibited unlawful activities, but in the new privacy statement they got more specific about prostitutes and escort services. The reason for that is that in some countries prostitution and escort services are legal. Prostitution is for instance legal in Germany since 2002. LinkedIn confirmed to Mashable that they changed the privacy policy to be more clear about that they do not want prostitutes on their network.
