One of the difference makers of LinkedIn as a social media platform is its transparency. One of the major transparency factors is the digital trail you leave as you use LinkedIn.
You’ve probably noticed the emails you receive from LinkedIn (unless you have opted out of them) telling you who has viewed your profile. If you aren’t getting these emails and haven’t opted out, well, no one is viewing your profile.
I recently saw a tweet from my internet friend, Jeremy Goldman, about another level of profile viewing: views from private profiles.
Whenever someone views my LinkedIn profile but I can’t see who it is, a little part of me dies inside

So how does someone create privacy when they are searching/viewing/perving others’ profiles? We have a video for that below.
Remember: We do not endorse or suggest you act this way on LinkedIn. If you truly want success on the platform, be as open, transparent, and honest as you can.
Thanks for reading and watching this piece. If you know others who can benefit from learning more LinkedIn information, use the share tools to the side of these words and help to spread the word. Keep those comments and questions about the #31DaysOfLinkedIn coming!
