Keep your connections private. Don’t let competitors see who you’re connected to. Change the setting on your privacy page so no one can see your prospects and customers.
Stop promoting your competitors. Know that box titled “People Also Viewed” next to someone’s profile? That’s showing when people look at your profile, and it’s probably showcasing your competitors. Turn it off.
Before you rehaul your LinkedIn profile, turn off automated announcements. This will spare your contacts from having to get 23 announcements about all the profile edits you’re about to make.
