Someone Views my Social-Media Profile

Social-Media. It’s a powerful platform that connects you with millions of professionals across the globe. Blah, blah, blah. Sure, that’s amazing and all—but, it’s not even close to my favorite part about this networking tool. What’s the very best thing about Social-Media? You already know the answer.

It’s easy: The fact that—with just one click of a button—you can see exactly who’s been creepin’ on you at any given point in time. And, nothing makes me transform into Nancy Drew faster than when someone anonymous takes a gander at my perfectly quantified bullet points.

Obviously, those people that looked at your profile were intrigued by something about you, meaning you have a captive audience right at your fingertips. The “Who’s Viewed Your Profile” section is quite literally a treasure trove of strangers just waiting to blossom into full-blown connections.

But, there’s only one problem: Most of us never actually do anything with the information that’s there. Instead, we take a quick scroll through those names, think, “Huh, I wonder what she wanted!” and then move on with our days.

Well, no more, my eager-to-network friends! This sneaky feature is quite literally the crown jewel of Social-Media. So, it’s time you start leveraging that wealth of knowledge.

“That sounds great!” you’re thinking to yourself, “But…uhhh…how?” Whether you’re currently hunting for a new gig or are just looking to meet some new people, I’ve got the details on exactly what you should do when someone takes a look at your profile—so that you can start using that information to your advantage.

  1. Barbe… There are many things it could mean. For instance:

    Someone just happened to be on social-media and came across your profile from doing a search, joining a discussion group to which you belong, etc
    or someone just wanted to check you out more to see if you can handle certain things, should be recommended for a promotion, deserve a transfer, etc.

    Somebody else had said to the boss or dropped hints that there may be something inappropriate or inaccurate in your profile, so he or she is checking it out.

    Someone knows or figures that you’re using social media for work purposes because of the role you have in the office or with the company. So he or she is checking it out to see if it’s appropriate for customers and/or prospects, reflecting well upon the company, and making you look good as one of the company’s employees.

    Someone suspects, has been told by others, or even told by you that you plan on leaving. So he or she is checking your profile out just to see if you’re badmouthing them, revealing something confidential, and/or spreading misinformation.

    The point is that we have good and bad reasons why someone or another within the company would be looking at your social media profile.
