Last fall we blogged about LinkedIn’s entrance into research.

While one might think this means LinkedIn understands research, a recent survey I received from them makes me think otherwise.

I took their survey, which was done on survey monkey (with all of their partners, they couldn’t find a better service?); skip patterns didn’t work (or they were asking me irrelevant questions for fun), and overall it gave me little confidence in their research knowledge.  (I wish I would have taken screen shots to show here.)

Can I really trust them to provide sample and execute a survey if they can’t do it for themselves?

Has anyone else had experiences with this service yet – good or bad?
