Your work history is distinct, more than most passwords. Your resume identifies you (who else had your last 2 to 4 jobs?) even without your name/photo. @LinkedIn as a social network relies on the collective trust of its users to honor the contexts of career and work.
#GDPR makes @LinkedIn accountable for how the company sticks to promised uses of your data, but GDPR doesn't cover how other members of the network use or abuse your information. Social norms (and peer payback like @LeenaVanD offers) can raise the stakes. But abuse happens.
Most data protection laws deal with the relationship between you and companies. The next round of laws will start to cover data in motion (chat, calls, data in transit). But they also should start to consider person-to-person use/abuse of your data. #gdpr #privacy @IdentityWoman
We're moving toward a human right where data by and abut you, including what you share on @LinkedIn, is as much a part of you as your mind and body. And deserving of the respect and proper treatment you'd expect. Consent, due process, protection, nurturing.

If your CV is a part of you, like your mind or body, & you entrust that part of yourself to the care of the @LinkedIn network, what is an out-of-context use by another member? Inviting someone on a date (transgressing consented uses of your self) is the least of potential abuses.
Where your CV is part of you like your body,
taking it (meaning without consent)…
for resale is human trafficking.
for dating is pimping/pandering.
for advertising violates freedom from the speech of others
and the right to control with whom you associate.
Like Facebook, Microsoft is a battleground for personal control of personal data and control over your digital identity and self. LinkedIn is just one $MSFT division (alongside workplace, Skype, and gaming networks) but LI's social norms are mature and clear.
Personally, I'd have no problem using LinkedIn data to populate services for other uses, including dating (hey, my CV shows I'm a quant introvert with strong social skills if you're into that). But: must have opt-in, informed consent, & norms that match those new uses.
So, to recap:
- Peer-to-peer abuse of data is barely covered by law. Now.
- Norms for enforcement get you only so far
- Mind+Body+Data+Code need human rights law protections
- We don't have the words for what we expect from new rights. Working on it.
