I’ve been ripping through Games of Thrones, trying to catch up to season eight. At this point, Arya Stark has manged to get back to Winterfell by concealing her identity at times. She learned how to do this by being trained by Jaqen H’ghar and the Waif.
When she’s asked who she is, she declares, “No One.”
For those of you who haven’t watched Game of Thrones or have no inclination to do so, let me get to the reason why I’m writing this post.
I received a belligerent Facebook message from a person who wrote, “Hi Bob…..do you even remember me or know who I am?”
To be honest, I don’t remember her. So what I did was look at her Facebook page to see if there were any photos of her. An image of a woman holding a baseball bat with a Bruins’ logo in the background is her photo.
There were pictures of many people young and old, but nothing clearly indicating her countenance.
Then I looked her up on LinkedIn, and guess what. Right, no photo on her profile.
Don’t remember her.
This account of mine might seem insignificant. And really I’m not rattled by it. However, it goes to show you that if you’re on social media and have no photo of yourself, you’re No One.
Here’s one thing to consider if you’re No One, you will not be trusted, liked, or remembered by LinkedIn members, including recruiters and other hiring authorities.
