Julie Walraven has a great post today explaining why you need a LinkedIn profile picture.
She writes, “People instinctively trust someone more if they can see their face.” She’s right.
Remember, when you make a recommendation or endorsement, your profile photo shows on that person’s LinkedIn profile. Don’t be a drab, anonymous silhouette.
While your friends and colleagues surely appreciate your support, you can see it has more impact when it’s connected to a face than when it’s not.
So please, get a profile photo up. If you don’t care about it for yourself, do it for your valued friends and colleagues.
