LinkedIn Profile Quick Tip #3: Turn Off Activity Broadcasts


It’s common to fuss over your LinkedIn profile. Just as people spend way too much time tweaking their resumes, many job seekers obsess over their LinkedIn profiles – and this can hurt your job search. Here’s why…
Tip of the day: Turn off your activity broadcasts.
Inside the settings of your LinkedIn account is a “Turn on/off activity broadcasts” option. You should make sure it’s turned off when you are making changes. Otherwise, every time you make a change, everyone (yes, EVERYONE) in your LinkedIn network is getting an update that you made a change and what it is.
Do that enough times and it’s a dead giveaway that you are A) obsessing over your profile, and B) have a lot of time on your hands. It’s better to keep the obsession to yourself.
