I'm on a mission. I love LinkedIn - it's by far the most effective social media tool I use for my business. But I have one big issue and I want to get it resolved. Why isn't there a place to put your picture on your LinkedIn profile?
The other day, someone contacted me through LinkedIn referencing our meeting over a year ago at a networking event. I can't remember her. The name sounds familiar and I know I had a conversation with her, but if I had her picture it sure would help me spark my memory.
Adding a picture to your professional profile would also help when you're sending new invites. People remember faces easier than names or titles. If I had an invite with a face I recognized, it would increase my feeling of connection with that person.
So, in an effort to make this request known, I'm starting a petition to gain support for LinkedIn adding the option to upload pictures to their service.
To sign the petition, simply leave a comment below.
