Did you know that you can customize your LinkedIn profile URL when you edit your public profile? I did before updating my social networks page for myself and my business and you can too. Please keep in mind that the vanity URL for LinkedIn Profiles are available on a first come, first served basis so if your name isn’t unique, reserve it quickly.
