DISCLAIMER: I HAVE NOT FINISHED THE BOOK AT THE TIME OF THIS POST.
So why am I writing a post about the book if I have not yet finished reading it?
In chapter four, there is a section where it is shared that while the big banks, etc., are working to keep their actions confidential, “DIY detectives” were able to find all the information they wanted by connecting with bank employees on LinkedIn and reviewing their profiles, resumes, etc.
Knowing the ongoing discussions around companies wanting access to employees or potential hires’ social accounts, I found myself asking the following:
- Will one possible ripple effect of this book be that companies attempt to crack down on employees’ LI profiles?
- If so, can they do so? Legally?
Personally, I don’t know. It’s just a question that popped into my head while reading the book.
What do you think?
