Another LinkedIn week goes by and not much changes….the share price keeps dropping and I see numerous articles about the drop in standards and unprofessionalism of LinkedIn!……Tough times for Mr Weiner and his gang!
As I have somewhat neglected your questions in recent episodes I thought I would focus on the AFQ section this week…..first a few interesting articles I read this week;
I’m promoting this section up the agenda this week!
On the subject of inappropriate content on LinkedIn, I got this question this week;
It has come to my attention that some porn stars/sex workers are appearing in my profile!! How can I stop this?

Not great! The problem is you would see this yourself, the only way you would find out is if someone told you!
The solution is to switch off this feature in your settings.
Go to the main ‘profile’ section of your settings and you will see the link as shown below.
How do I a) Get more profile views and b) Get more invitations to connect?
Profile Views extension.
