P.S.: Do not be driven by numbers like follower count, amount of likes and views. Though they are nice metrics, they are by no means, at least in my opinion, a measure of success. Do what YOU love, and success will automagically follow! ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ’–

Also does anyone noticed that DEV doesn't show follower count, to me this is the most "purest" form of social media (is DEV social media ๐Ÿค”)

I am pretty sure the feed algorithms also give less significance to follower count

Also congrats on the growth here ๐ŸŽ‰, DEV helped me Kickstart my blogging journey as well ๐Ÿ–ค

To me LinkedIn is arguably the LAMEST social media platform to ever exist.

So far I agree (even though I sent a connection request ๐Ÿ˜‚).
I mainly use it for self promotion and to share my blogs/projects from time to time

That is quite pleasant indeed ๐Ÿ˜Š

Personally, I like the algorithm used here. Hope it stays this way. On other blogging platforms it feels as though only the already popular ones get attention and the freshers go unnoticed.

Also congrats on the growth here ๐ŸŽ‰

Thank you for the kind words! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ™‡๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

I just happen to feel like LinkedIn really does not bring any engagement. What's your experience so far? Has it worked for promoting your content? ๐Ÿค”
