  • Bullet 1: Some sites will allow only a defined community of users (members only/registered users) to access posted content, while others allow anyone to view postings Bullet 2: Consider restricting access to your personal page of information that you post (e.g., limit access to your family, friends, your team, a club, etc.). Bullet 3: Don’t post your full name, Social Security number, address, phone number, school name, exact age, etc. Bullet 4: Your screen name should make you anonymous; don’t use obvious information in your screen name such as your age, hometown, pet name, or part of your real name
  • Bullet 2: Even if you delete the information, people could have downloaded the information already or older versions of your information can exist on other peoples’ computers. Bullet 3: Your photo can be altered and distributed in ways that you may not be happy about. Never post sexually provocative pictures. Bullet 4: People lie about who they really are. You never know who you could be dealing with.

    6. 7. Protect your Linked in Account From Spammers: <ul><li>Please use caution when clicking or opening emails, seemingly from sites you trust. </li></ul><ul><li>Spammers try to mimic legitimate emails, but they often make mistakes like typos or include information that’s not relevant to you. Be suspicious of emails that include names you don’t recognize. </li></ul><ul><li>Keep in mind that a site like Linked in would never ask you to open an email attachment or install a software update. </li></ul><ul><li>These spurious emails can infect your computer with virus or spyware. To protect yourself, make sure you have anti-virus and anti-spyware software installed and it is up-to-date. </li></ul><ul><li>Before clicking on a link in an email, place your cursor over the link to verify that they lead to the appropriate site. </li></ul><ul><li>When in doubt, open a new browser window and go directly to Linked in.com to check your inbox and verify the connection request or message. </li></ul>

If each person had 10 connections (and some have many more) then your network would contain 10,000 professionals. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>How do you see who is in your Network? </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Linked in lets you see your network as one large group of searchable professional profiles. </li></ul></ul></ul>
