There are quite a few WSU’s out there, Wayne State University (where I am from), Washington State University, Wichita State University, Wright State University, etc. So referencing WSU on the web doesn’t always work.
Today I received a LinkedIn invitation from someone I did not know in person. So I checked out her profile and got down to a reference to Wayne State University. I simply scrolled my mouse over the title and this pop-up appeared:
The pop-up is a normal action of LinkedIn but the content is completely wrong. They mixed up Washington State and Wayne State!
I cannot tell which university is correct, my guess is Wayne State since their other positions have been in Michigan. Being a programmer at heart I try to analyze how this could possibly happen in my head but the only reason I continue to come up with is lazy programming.
I wonder how many other LinkedIn blunders are out there.
