Just in Time for Halloween: A Scary New LinkedIn Feature


My husband, an IT guru since the days when a personal computer was one that you ordered parts for and assembled yourself, alerted me to a very scary new feature on LinkedIn.

With the prevalence of identity theft and fraud these days, you cannot be too careful with your personal information. That is the reason why I advise my clients to limit the personal contact info they include on their executive resumes and to be careful what they post online or send out in emails.

Enter LinkedIn with a feature that may sound great on the surface: Intro. It allows you to have fancy business-centric HTML content injected right in your emails. The security risk potential for something like this is very high, and I would strongly advise my executive clients NOT to jump on the bandwagon for this one.
