Make your profile searchable!
Is your LinkedIn profile easy to find? Is it compatible with emerging social media platforms? Optimize your personal LinkedIn profile to work with new social media platforms by completing the following easy steps:
1. Log in and click “Edit Profile”
2. Scroll down to the bottom of the blue highlighted box (top of your profile and click “edit” next to “Public Profile.” IF you have a string of numbers and characters next to your name, you need to change this to something more searchable, and more compatible with the new social media platforms. This is how you do it…
3. Change your “Public Profile URL” to something like this: http://www.linkedin.com/in/maryfletcherjones
Note: you can only change the last part of the URL, it has to be one word only, and it should be as close to your professional name as possible, for search.
This is a little change that will make a big difference!
