The past two years have seen a number of stories on LinkedIn that suggest LinkedIn has had trouble recruiting and retaining employees after the company took the step to remove ads from the platform.
In February, LinkedIn announced it would not be allowing any ads from its platform to appear on its homepage.
It was a major blow to the platform’s advertising business.
The company said the decision was based on an investigation by the U.S. Federal Trade Commission, which determined LinkedIn had not violated federal advertising laws.
In March, the company said it was also launching an advertising program in partnership with Facebook.
In May, the FTC released a report detailing the company’s advertising program.
In it, it concluded that LinkedIn ads had no relationship with the site’s advertising platforms, which it described as “non-commercial and non-intrusive.”
The report also found that Facebook had used LinkedIn ads to advertise to advertisers for the past year, and that the company had violated FTC regulations when it had not approved ads.
LinkedIn did not respond to Recode’s request for comment.
But now, the ad industry is coming out in support of LinkedIn.
The LinkedIn Ads Coalition, an industry group, has launched an advertising campaign to encourage LinkedIn to change its ad policies.
The coalition is asking the company to remove its ads from LinkedIn and Facebook and to make changes to its website to better accommodate the advertising industry.
The group is also asking the site to update its policies and processes so that it can allow the ad platform to work with advertisers.
The coalition also said that LinkedIn has a responsibility to help the advertising community.
If the site does not act on its own to change the ad policies, it risks damaging the industry and leaving millions of people who have made a career on the platform with ads for no money.
“The LinkedIn Ads community is asking LinkedIn to take a step back and reconsider its decision to not allow ads from all of its platform partners,” said Ben Schachter, the coalition’s chief executive.
“In the past, LinkedIn has been a strong supporter of the advertising ecosystem, but now its doing it in a way that is very problematic.”
