LinkedIn Needs a Cringe Button

Like Wall Street Bets or Elon Musk, what if we could take LinkedIn to the Moon or even Mars? LinkedIn is behind the times on many cultural trends and it's time to take it to the next level.

We have the like, celebrate, support, love, insightful, and curious options.

But something is missing...

Do you have connections from high school who post things like "I humbly accept an offer to a XYZ virtual leadership conference" or "Incoming Diversity & Inclusion Conference intern"?


The Cringe Button!

Like every silicon valley startup who has a ping pong table in the break room, the Cringe Button is ushering in a new age of corporate culture.

Perfect for occasions where your burnout college roommate is posting about how he "loves working with amazing clients like XYZ who care SO much about the environment!" (while knowing he's the type of guy to do blow in a Denny's bathroom stall).

2021 is a year for new beginnings. LinkedIn is here to make those beginnings, a reality.

My IRL criinge button is I say "Awkwo Taco" and I sometimes make a taco clamshell with my palms if the situation warrants it.


Look at all these wannabe richies hating on an expensive salad.

Meh if you're serious, I think it's a really bad idea. Imagine how bad it would look on you disliking something like that since all your activity is public. Better just post to LinkedInFlex
