How to make changes on LinkedIn without alerting your contacts

maximizing LinkedIn, making the most of LinkedIn, using LinkedIn to find a job,
Have you tried to stealthily tweak something on your LinkedIn profile … like a job title … only to have the update unexpectedly sent to all of your connections? I hate when that happens! 

To keep that from occurring is a bit tricky

To turn off notifications, visit Me and then "View Profile". Scroll to your Experience section and in the first work entry, click the blue pencil.

Scroll to the bottom of the pop-up window and then make sure that the On/Off toggle switch is turned to "Off". 

You can also limit who can see your activity broadcasts by clicking the Select who can see your activity feed link in Settings. Choose to allow “Only you” when making changes you don’t want people to see. Change this setting to be more public afterwards so that it appears that you are active on LinkedIn.

If despite your best efforts, an update goes out and people see and comment about it, try these tips:

  • Delete the update by finding the article in the Articles and Activities section of your profile
  • Click on the article and then when it opens, click on the three dots in the top right corner of the post. 
  • Click "Delete the post"

What questions or comments do you have about status updates and what can go wrong when you edit your profile? Share them on WiserU.com or on the LinkedIn discussion board that might have brought you to the blog.
