Lots of Gloss but no Substance
For all the latest bells & whistles, LinkedIn still remains the only social network that permits anonymous viewing of a profile. Anyone with an internet connection and a bogus account can stalk your profile for whatever nefarious reason suits his/her purpose. CEO Weiner has been petitioned by various privacy groups who are hosted on the site itself, and several high profile stalking cases have been front & center in an effort to persuade LinkedIn to allow members to lock down their profiles to disallow anonymous lurking. Even Facebook has such a feature, but strangely, LinkedIn pays the appropriate lip service to privacy concerns, but in the final analysis, does not give members the ability to stop anonymous views of member profiles.
