    I rarely use it though find it amusing when people go semi anon “this person works in the food industry” as then have a guessing game about who they might be. I’m more likely to use it if I’m updating my own profile and looking for ideas as to the best things to say in it.

    Why not let a competitor know you’ve looked at them? What do you have to hide? Are you stealing their branding or something? If you know they’re a competitor – they probably know you’re a competitor. Also, the market is probably much bigger than both of you. There’s probably room for both of you? You both share an interest in growing the market – so have a basis for collaborating?

    I guess I was being a bit tongue in cheek with my title. If I’m doing research I don’t always want the person I’m looking at to know I have been. In my case that’s rarely competitive research but it can help. It can also help if you need to look at profiles on a regular basis, it stops me looking like a stalker.

    In a perfect world, I’d like to be able to view people’s profiles anonymously and see everyone who viewed my profile, but that’s not going to happen. I think LinkedIn’s rules are pretty clearcut and it’s easy to stay within them. I knew a Lawyer who wouldn’t let anyone see his network as he thought it was “trade secret”.

    I have to say somebody regularly looks at my profile every 4-5 days as “an anonymous user” so I know someone has viewed my profile but not who they are… It’s really creepy and really starting to bother me!
