I haven’t blogged in a bit but thought I’d do a quick post on changing how your profile will appear to other users on LinkedIn.
When you view a user’s LinkedIn profile, it captures this and displays it in a report to the user. If you’d like more anonymity when navigating through the site, do the following:
- Click on your name in the top right corner and select “Settings”
- Click on the Profile tab towards the bottom of the screen
- Click on “Select what others see when you’ve viewed their profile”
- From here you can have your name and company displayed to other users, just the Company, or be completely Anonymous
This was an unknown setting to me until I started digging into LinkedIn more and wanted to share it with everyone.
