The problem with social networking sites for people in the sex industry is the civilians. Bella of 2nd Circle Escorts is a good looking woman. Stunning, actually. And the number of Direct Messages she gets each day from total strangers complimenting her on her profile photos and asking her to write back would be sad if it was not so predictable. But she is very professional, so she simply says thank you and ignores the rest.
It was for a long time difficult to get a profile set up on LinkedIn. For a while you even had to produce a photo ID of some kind to minimise the number of fake profiles in the network. The problem was all the recruitment consultants setting up several dummy profiles with which they made contact with candidates discreetly. If LinkedIn did not like your profile, or could not verify your background, they would delete it. And absolutely no smut or filth allowed!
Anyone realizes that a number of social network services– Skout, for instance, are completely employed for getting sex. Various other, including Twitter and Tumblr are saturated with sufficient filth to make pornhub fall over, however there are additional activites occurring. Anal sex, cats as well as comic books side-by-side. Still a third set, including Instagram attempt to help keep porn away from the monitors by means of banishing certain pictures and yet are still filled with porn– often by means of Instant Messaging as well as groups.
Certainly there are the business socials media, prime is LinkedIn. Up to a few years ago I was actually seriously engaged in the employment industry and that site is ) a main mechanism when it comes to recruitment consultants along with job hunters associated with job hunting. As an aside; indeed I chose to be a recruitment head hunter. When I could not accept the seedy attributes of the business as well as the strange looks people had when I told them what I did any more, I made a choice to create a big shift and to get working on an activity considerably cleaner and with a better reputation. So I started running escort agencies.
Blog posts and images that Facebook would ban in a heartbeat now appear on LinkedIn. Adult performers and entertainers being very open about what they do. But looking at it, everyone involved in the adult industries are actually still being very “business-like” in their posts and profiles. Marie, for example, posts about the business challenges of running escort agencies in Madrid and Barcelona. They do not actively advertise for punters!
Imagine my surprise when I was chatting with the management of 2nd Circle Escorts Benidorm and heard that they have established huge networks of clients, international escort girls and various business contacts and suppliers through LinkedIn. It made me check it out again. And wow has it changed.
I do not know how the change with LinkedIn happened. Did LinkedIn just drop their standards? Did they realise that the adult industry is an industry like any other? Or was their growth stalled and they needed to show an increase in profile numbers for their investors? Who knows, but it will be interesting to see what happens now that the network has professional sex workers on board and is no longer simply the haunt of sleazy headhunters.
