Or you could just NOT use such stalker filled services. Though I found that most stalkers don't like being stalked back, go figure.

I was stalked by someone years ago in the pre-Internet era and it was very frightening. It has to be down-right horrifying to someone being stalked these days since everything we do is monitored and tracked on the Internet. It was very easy for me to use the Internet and track down my location all without leaving my sofa. All I needed to know was a few key answers and poof, there I was, my address, employer, marriage status, and so much more. The Internet is a stalkers dream.

What would you share on link in that could make you feel violated if someone saw it? I don't see the point. You can't block yourself from the Internet once you share it. If you want to hide from people, you have no business on LinkedIn

You're not a very deep thinker.

Don't worry the NSA is coming to fix all your problems. Including the ID theft that most European countries without the NSA have been able to control very well !

Yeah, they'll only borrow your ID... That's not Theft, that's National Security!!!

You know? You might be right in all sides. Any way one looks at what you just said, seems a very real possibility. Very good. : )

I don't get it. They want to be public but block certain individuals? What is to stop the "creep" from opening a fake account?

It's not very hard to adjust your privacy settings on LinkedIn.

Part of the reason for joining LinkedIn is to network with strangers who may be able to help your career. Making your profile private severely hampers that ability.

Not when people in your "Network" can still see you and interact with you. It greatly reduces exposure to people you don't know.

Why is "Carried Interest" not taxed as Income?
06:35 PM on 06/19/2013
Linked-in is where I have my list of folks that I have met and worked with professionally so that I can see what they are currently doing. I occasionally drop a line to some of them.
I've never thought of it as a job search site.
It appears to need a feature to block users.

Facebook is for friends, and I don't "friend" professional contacts.

It helps with networking. But I have my account pretty locked down because I had a stalker in the days before the WWW.

it may not have started that way for use by job seekers, but all the state unemployment agencies across the US are shoving people to get onto linkedin in the worst way. some i think are even pretty close to requiring it as a condition of collecting unemployment benefits. worst part is, I see some people on my network who link up to everyone under the sun in their career field, without building in a connection on who they actually are talking to. my connection list may be smaller than most, but i try to only add on people who I actually know (friends/family), or who I actually had contact in my job applications who might have seen my cover letter and/or resume. maybe i'm doing it wrong that way, but when it comes to professional lists like that, i'd like to have at least some familiarity with who sees what professionally.

Privacy is a concern. I agree that LinkedIn needs to provide a choice. The problem is much of the advertising with it is that it provides a networking mechanism that allows you to customer prospect without actually calling anyone. In a world where due diligence is waived daily in search of the almighty sale I am not surprised that while the premise is right the chances that it will be implemented in this case to be slim or none.

The best way to not be bothered by unwanted emails, etc. is to not sign up for any social media, whether it's LinkedIn, Facebook, or whatever.
07:04 PM on 06/19/2013
how would one get wanted emails?

I get wanted emails from friends, from some retailers and other organizations as well as some subscribed newsletters daily. I do not belong to any social media sites so I don't understand your question.

Could it be that LinkedIn doesn't allow blocking on purpose because it makes most of its money from recruiters? If people could block the recruiters (many of whom are annoying spammers), that would work against LinkedIn's financial interests.

It is annoying, every now and then I get a message from someone who thinks "I can help them out" by sharing my resources to launch their career.

LinkedIn was ruined a long time ago by desperate headhunters and employment agencies. Not only do they come in uninvited, but they march through into your connections' profiles uninvited.
