Linkedin, a social network for companies and people looking for a job, has in its message box a reading confirmation feature similar to Facebook Messenger. When you open a received message, the recipient sends the sender confirmation that the content has been read. The feature is useful, but can cause embarrassing situations when, for example, the person wants to respond later. Although enabled by default, the function can be disabled.
