VIADEO IS SHOOTING A BULLET IN ITS FOOT ....
Probably on the advice of "wise" of the new communications team accustomed to ex-Google limits the giant, the French site VIADEO has yet to introduce a new usage restrictions and reduces the potential HOUSING CONTACTS!! !
According to the principle of 'unlimited contacts' for Premium ticket holders, rule 29 requests per hour possible contacts, commissioning expansion to reduce your address book in February 2012, becoming since noon TODAY' Today a new limit of 100 requests per day maximum possible contacts!
This means that we had a libertine paradise time, the best years were well behind us and he rules advocate the principle of "I do not want a head above", it will cost more expensive (effective doubling of the Viadéo subscription to € 118.80 for 24 months spent without warning this month to 12 months + registered without restrictions subscription which Viadéo derives 50% of its sales) and it will be increasingly difficult for a newcomer to the site French professional today to expand its network, where you can buy contacts on Linekdin and when the giant German XING leader in Europe takes the opposite path and allows a formal contacts without any limit as this is easier to simply cancel the pending requests to send more.
After they suffice to complete this shift transfer holders like myself, ranked among the top three worldwide with 40,000 direct contacts Viadéo (but 260,000 on other sites) that have their model had invited all his 10 years on relational site after helping Viaduc and was Ambassador to Germany and Viadeo England and you'll have it. After the "well known" success of Copainsd'Avant .... before, Dailymotion soon US at Yahoo and many others, I say BRAVO!
Conclusion: better not put your eggs in one basket and Viadéo is to my opinion doing a large strategic error as was the case when the restriction was valid per minute, removed the next day!
