I receive emails from Linked In contacts about their job changes and congratulate them on their anniversary. Pretty annoying stuff. I often use default dates and information like 1/1/1900. Disinformation across the web universe can help to obscure others from gathering information you would rather control.
On Linked In I realized that they were sending out emails on my bogus anniversary dates and when I made a slight change of title a , ‘Congratulate Don on his new job’, email would go to my contacts. I read about how to stop those emails and a day later I navigated in and found I was unable to find it on my own. I had to do a Google Search to get a link close enough to dig my way in. To help you out I’ll share it here.
