When you share information online, it’s important to keep it as private as possible.
This is a key reason why sharing links on LinkedIn and Facebook is one of the best ways to avoid being tracked by social networks, according to a recent report from social media platform and research firm KPMG.
“When you’re on LinkedIn you can post a link, and it’s just a matter of how you do it and who sees it,” said Kevin McBride, the CEO of KPMB.
“But when you’re sharing something on a social network like WhatsApp or Facebook, the link becomes visible to anyone who’s logged in, and so that person can see it.
So you have to be extremely careful about how you post.”
McBride recommends using a service like Linked in order to share information.
“You can get really good at it,” he said.
“Linked in has a whole range of different ways that you can use to share that information.”
Linked also offers an option to use a custom avatar on your profile, which makes sharing links a lot easier.
If you’re not familiar with this service, it allows you to use custom avatars that will appear in a certain section of your LinkedIn profile.
If a friend has tagged you in their profile as an account owner, Linked will allow you to tag them in the link.
“It’s like using a custom emoji on your LinkedIn page,” McBride said.
When you create a link on Linked, you can also include a link to your LinkedIn homepage, and Linked lets you add more than one link to a link.
McBride recommended that you create one link with your profile image and one with your LinkedIn link.
He said you can then share both links at the same time.
“If you’re using a LinkedIn site, you’ll have the link on the page, but if you’re linking to a website, you’re going to have a link at the top of your profile,” McBree said.
In addition to the standard link to the homepage, you also can create a custom link to an image on your page, like this: www.linkedin.com/image/profile-image/p1-p2/2/1McBride recommends creating a custom image link for the same reason.
He also recommends creating an avatar image for your LinkedIn account and adding the avatar to the image you’re tagging.
If your LinkedIn avatar doesn’t have a custom name, you could try using the name from your profile.
For example, if your LinkedIn name is John, you might want to create a picture of yourself with a LinkedIn logo and a LinkedIn avatar image, McBride suggested.
You can also create an avatar and then share that avatar link with other people on LinkedIn.
McBrees advice was echoed by Daniel Dolan, a business and marketing professor at the University of Toronto who has studied how LinkedIn users use social networks.
“They have a habit of creating these very specific profiles with very specific characteristics,” Dolan said.
That’s a good thing because it allows them to use their LinkedIn profile as a marketing tool.
“In other words, you don’t want to have this big, boring, generic LinkedIn profile that you’re trying to build a profile around,” he added.
“The way you want to use it is to create the profile, get the data from LinkedIn, and then use that data to create an effective brand on LinkedIn.”
Dolan noted that some of the social networks that Linked is based on, like Facebook, are also very private.
“Facebook is really different because there’s a lot of privacy built into it,” Dolasaid.
“That’s a key difference.”
He also noted that LinkedIn’s “Profile Sharing” feature is designed to make it easy for users to share their personal information.
If someone’s not looking, you will be able to see their profile, Dolan added.
Linked’s McBride also suggested that you might consider using a tool like Google+ to share content on your network.
“Google+ is really good for sharing links,” McBrea said.
You just need to make sure you use the appropriate filters, and the people you share links with can see the content that’s in your account.
“One of the things that’s really good about Google+ is that you’ll get a lot more visibility if you have a large number of people sharing links with you, but also if you don,” Mcbrea said, adding that this also reduces the chances that someone will find out what you’re up to.
“So it really does reduce the chances of people knowing what you are up to,” Mc Brea said about Google+.
