I heard about this on MVPF a couple of weeks ago, but wasn’t able to actually see it for myself. Until recently. I did a search on LinkedIn ________ (I can’t remember what it was), and check out what I found on the third page:
That image is coming from Raymond’s (I think he goes by Chip) LinkedIn profile image.
Cool, eh? AFAIK, this only works in Yahoo, and I’m not sure why my photo is not showing up when you search for “Jason Alba LinkedIn”… although I have a theory: under Account and Settings, my picture is set to show fore everyone. However, under Public Profile, the Picture box was unchecked. I just checked it – we’ll see how long it takes to for Yahoo to pick it up.
If you want your picture to show up in the search results, you should go into Account and Settings, Public Profile, and check the “picture” box. I’m not sure, but I’m guessing …
