Pros & Cons: “People Also Viewed” feature on LinkedIn

According to LinkedIn, the “People Also Viewed” feature on LinkedIn shows a list of other profiles like yours, for example, other people with similar job titles and industries. 

This feature CAN help you find other professionals in your industry and/or area (etc.) to grow your network – good, right?

What this may do for job seekers, is NOT what you probably want:  it could help recruiters find OTHER applicants with similar skills/experience to you.


You can choose if you want this feature

to be active on your profile, or not:



1) Select the Me icon at top of your LinkedIn homepage
2) Select Settings & Privacy
3) Select Account preferences
4) Select Change next to Viewers of this profile also viewed
5) Select No or Yes
