So yesterday, I read about Linda Ikeji Social on LIB and Linda Ikeji I was super excited to check it out after counting down to November 1st. I didn’t have time to sign up until 4:30pm or thereabouts. Once I did that, I got this email.

I checked my mailbox immediately but unfortunately, there was no confirmation email. It was strange and Linda Ikeji I thought my IP address was marked as a punishment for writing this post. I logged on to Twitter and found out a lot of people were facing same problem- Confirmation email arriving thirty, forty minutes later.

In my own case it didn’t. I tried to while away time by playing with Snapchat Halloween filters, thinking of why the manufacturers of Beloxxi crackers biscuit reduced it from three pieces of biscuit to two, thinking if the manufacturers of coaster biscuit are trying to justify the N10 increase in their stale biscuit by redesigning the pack.

In other words it was like waiting for the change Buhari promised us- still no email until I left for home.
This morning, Godwin! I saw the email and was able to log in.

I was asked to upload a profile photo immediately.

Seeing Linda Ikeji’s face smiling at me was super creepy. I know this is her sweat and the name of the app is Linda Ikeji Social but whatever happened to standard ghost avatars?
I skipped immediately before Laura’s face pops up.

First impressions…. I saw a red Facebook.

I wanted to feel more at home so I clicked on the settings tab to customise the theme to blue, the default colour of Facebook but I got this error in the setting page.
I returned to the homepage immediately.

As a lover of free gifts, I quickly clicked on the giveaways tab. I want to chop that Banana Island money too.

Clearly, I am too late for this except you guys want to follow me there. 🙂 I can create a blog account there.

Next, I clicked on the shop. These were clearly dummy data as the vendor Linda Ikeji names bore Jumia and Fashion.

Even though I like pink bags, I didn’t see any of Linda Ikeji Birkin Bag at a giveaway price so I moved to the next tab. ‘Submit’

Linda Ikeji has promised to give a whooping sum of N,1000 to users who would submit exclusive gist to her. Though the price is tempting, this submit tab is a place I have no business with since I have my own ajepako blog to submit to. Or my Instagram page, or my Twitter page, or my Facebook page. 🙂

I clicked on the terms and conditions and this section was the most interesting thing I found, knowing what people accuse Linda Ikeji of doing to other people content, Knowing the Cntrl P + Cntrl V that LIB is known for. 🙂
Next was the advertise tab which is remodeled similar to that of Nairaland.

I don’t know when next I would be logging in when I still have the good old LIB to read and of course, my Facebook account and olx.
There’s BN, SDK, NL, IG, Twitter, Snapchat etc and etc.

It’s hard to keep up with all these social networks tbh and Linda Ikeji I might even forget about LIS tomorrow. I might not. Can I find husband there?

All things being equal, the biggest challenge might be keeping users on the site. Giveaways would only attract the likes of Juliet Iwuno, Freeborn and co.
