LinkedIn Bro, I want to laugh at posts that are funny. Laughing releases a feel-good hormone, and job hunting can be stressful. Also, when I’m on the clock, I appreciate those nerdy posts and comments.

Honestly, what’s wrong with laughter? Did laughter hurt you, LinkedIn? Do you have resolved issues from childhood trauma caused by laughing? Seriously, what’s the deal with not having a laugh — or even a smiling reaction??
