So in case you weren’t aware that LinkedIn had tapped into the sex industry, you didn’t miss much, because they’ve already shut it down. LinkedIn has pulled the plug on Bang With Professionals, a sex application hoping to use the social network’s API to virtually and easily hook up coworkers.
The LinkedIn sex app was inspired by the massive launch of the Bang With Friends leveraging Facebook‘s friend network that we wrote about last month. In a few days, the app’s young and socially connected user base topped more than 30,000.
LinkedIn is playing it off now that it all was a joke, putting on their website, “we all had a good laugh.” Facebook’s Bang Your Friends application is still going strong however. The makers of the Facebook sex app revealed to Mashable that its registered about five new users per minute.
Would you use an App to find a Hook-Up?
