People I may know: Barack Obama on LinkedIn

I noticed with some degree of surprise this morning that I might know the future president of the US: Barack Obama.

However, that’s exactly what LinkedIn‘s likeness algorithm told me. Perhaps I am more powerful than I know.


Seriously, in the past months, LinkedIn’s “people you may know” feature has come up with some real hits, and some stunning misses. Sometimes I think they’re gaming the system, especially for a very topical person like Barack Obama.
