Why should you stay as an "Anonymous" LinkedIn member?

If LinkedIn was a real-life networking event, how would you react if you saw these “Anonymous” behaviours?
Cyber Netiquette represents the importance of proper manners and behaviour online. In general, cyber netiquette is the set of professional and social etiquettes practiced and advocated in electronic communication over any computer network. Common guidelines include being courteous and precise, and avoiding cyber-bullying. Netiquette is a short form of Network Etiquette or Internet Etiquette.

The more LinkedIn member netiquette rules there are, the more civilized LinkedIn as a professional networking social platform will be for everybody because the human mind strives for order. Rules give us order. Within LinkedIn, it is a good cyber netiquette to act as you do in reality on the internet. Ask yourself whether or not you would do it, say it, or write it to one of your real friends or associates. If you have to ask yourself this question whatever you are thinking of is not something you would do in reality.

It is a proper LinkedIn member cyber netiquette to be yourself online because you are not always a LinkedIn “anonymous” and others users are real people too. Do not try to be LinkedIn “Anonymous” online that you would not do in reality because you cannot be taken seriously if you do. Your online image is important. Don’t ruin it by being someone “anonymous” you’re not. You are who you are in life. Everyone has the power to change their ways. Your ways are your own. If you don’t like who you are, then change your ways and become who you want to be.

“Anonymous” LinkedIn Member – Who are you and why do you choose to be “Anonymous” on LinkedIn to some of us?

1) They could be a person on LinkedIn that simply does not know that is how they have their settings set up in the first place.

2) They could be a professional friend you used to work with that has a terrible LinkedIn profile and is just trying to see what it is like to have a better profile.

3) They could be a person afraid to have a public profile because of fear of their employer seeing it and taking measures to make their life miserable. I am sure nobody has ever heard of this happening before.

4) It could be a competitor of your managerial position just checking to see what you are up to- if that is the case take it as a compliment.

5) It could be that employer checking out your profile to see if he or she fills the types of positions that they have openings in and if they could be of assistance to them.

6) It could be someone looking for help with media & publicity interviewing or whatever your expertise & forte may be.

Most could care less who this elusive LinkedIn masked crusader could be within our very own professional network but we are more interested in why they choose to keep their status as “Anonymous”. Who else this “Anonymous” LinkedIn Member could be?

Why should you stay as an "Anonymous" LinkedIn member?

Thanks John  for the positive insight coming from your angle. To add on, my advice is to focus on the positives. I say this because it totally nails your professional online identity. It allows you to be present 24/7 even whilst you are on the beach. Your “bad” if you don’t take advantage.

The crucial point here is that even if you decide to go totally-Anonymous or ‘cloaked’ as a Basic member, your identity in actuality is only partially hidden. “Someone on LinkedIn” is blue and can be clicked. When you click on this, you get to see 10 Profiles, one of these folks is the so-called Anonymous browser. So the Kimono has been lifted. Paid LinkedIn members not only get the benefit of seeing who has browsed them in the ‘Profile Stats’ section regardless of their meta-visibility choice, they are ALSO guaranteed complete anonymity – “LinkedIn Member” is greyed out and cannot be clicked.

So, my word to the wise – if you truly need to be Anonymous on LinkedIn, you had better get a paid account.

What is a good alternative to Dropbox?

Is DropBox Safe and Secure? How Secure is DropBox? Well, security issues with Dropbox is a major concern. Nearly two-thirds of those that move sensitive data to the cloud regard their service providers as being primarily responsible for protecting that data, even though a similar number have little or no knowledge about what measures their providers have put in place to protect data.

Have anyone explore Podzy? Podzy is the world’s first totally secure, client side alternative to Dropbox. It provides enterprises with a private platform for implementing a secure on-premise alternative to Dropbox. Podzy, which offers a file sharing and storage service akin to Dropbox but which is secure, private and hosted on the customer’s premises – has been chosen as the winner in the Tools section of the Victorian iAwards. Podzy will now go forward to compete for the national title against other state winners in the national iAwards.
