#29/30: Switch your notifications off when you update your profile.

When you are editing or updating your profile, you don’t need to broadcast this to everyone in your network. It’s annoying. Especially when the message that goes out is that you have a new position – when in fact you don’t.

If you do want to let people everyone know there’s something new, then switch this on before you add something new. So you can keep it switched off until you add the last new piece of information you want to share with everyone.

Just remember to switch it back off again for your regular, incremental updates and small improvements and edits on your profile.

How do I switch notifications on or off?

When editing your profile, you’ll see a little switch at the right of your screen. This toggles on or off.

You can also swap the setting on or off from your Privacy & Settings interface – a shortcut to get straight to this setting is https://www.linkedin.com/psettings/activity-broadcast

Remember, there’s a difference between signal and noise.

Updates for every new addition to your profile is noise and annoyance.

When you do have news you want to share, consider simply publishing an update on LinkedIn.
