LinkedIn isn't Kidding: Name and Name Only!

By: Viveka Tuesday August 25, 2009 comments Tags: LinkedIn, LinkedIn Expert, Social Media Speaker, LinkedIn Name Field

Was a time I was listed on LinkedIn's People Search first page (and usually in the first few positions) as "LinkedIn Expert", "LinkedIn Trainer," "LinkedIn Speaker, " "Social Media Speaker," and "Social Media Trainer"  etc, etc.  You get the picture.  That was when I had my name simply as Viveka von Rosen

    • So just use your first name in the first name field

    • Your last name in the last name field

    • And ladies - you now have a maiden name field.



And please, take LinkedIn's End User Agreement seriously!
