After covering Facebook , Twitter and Foursquare, here are my privacy setting suggestions for LinkedIn. As the most professional of social networks, it’d be a smart idea to take time to review how you’re presenting yourself.
Everyone checks out other people’s profiles on LinkedIn. Each user sees a list of who has looked at their profile. Does “7 people in the last 5 days have viewed your profile” ring a bell? Remember, you have a choice on how and if you’d like to display your name in those results. Here are the available options:
- Your name and headline
- Your anonymous profile characteristics, such as industry and title
- Nothing. You will be completely invisible to users you have viewed.
Depending on your type of position and industry this setting may have a different importance level for you. For example, if you’re a recruiter or in HR this feature is a necessary setting to consider.
