I want to create a Linkedin profile but I don't like to share my personal and anagraphic data publicly: as far as I know Linkedin shares generic personal info (i.e. profile picture, full name and city) to anyone in the network, even when she/he is not among user's contacts.
I would like to avoid writing my full name, I would like to write an abbreviation of my name followed by my surname and I want to avoid putting my picture; on the other hands, those info will be inserted on the curricula vitae I will send to find a job. Therefore my question is:
Might it be a bad practice omitting the complete name and the picture on a Linkedin profile?
