It was good while it lasted, and provided needed functionality to LinkedIn, and was widely supported by open networkers on the social networking platform.
During a routine check of functionality I discovered that the “get” method of form completion which was used by the fast connection solution is now being blocked, and thus have made a notification post on the LinkedIn Answers service within “Using LinkedIn”, and have also changed the graphic that was being served to a number of sites to hopefully notify them of the change.
Multiple solutions had been suggested by LinkedIn users that would allow the functionality to remain without posing a security threat, but LinkedIn it seems decided to choose the route of blocking the service.
I don’t want to speculate as to why it was removed, or why I wasn’t notified in any way directly that such action was being taken.
