Greg Hyer and Martin Brossman discuss how to identify fake LinkedIn profiles. Fake profiles cost you time and violate the ethics, trust, and transparency of any community. In the episode, learn how to check to see if the profile photo is fake with a browser add-on from TinEye.com. Is the school they listed in their education a real school? Do they actually work for the company that is listed in the profile? Greg and Martin share some investigative work they recently did so that you know what to look out for.

Run time: 13:26
