Today's LinkedIn Nugget

Back to Basics Tuesday: it’s time for a #LinkedIn checkup

One of the most complex parts of being healthy, safe, and in charge of your persona on LinkedIn is regulating your image on LinkedIn, all within your control, on the Settings and Privacy tab.

Click the tiny round photo at the top right of any LinkedIn page, the dropdown offers a connection to “Settings and Privacy.”

OK that was easy. Now, without a roadmap to what you are about to enter, most people make a few choices, a few clicks, and get overwhelmed and shut the Settings and Privacy down.

Months ago, LinkedIn offered their best roadmap yet to this important section. I encourage you to use their latest guide to make many important decisions throughout and finish it knowing you have taken personal control of your profile and how you appear to others globally.

Fun? Nope.

Neither is an annual physical, yet you do it.

Just do it. I never want you to thank me for saving you from any embarrassment or monkey business on LinkedIn.
