FYi linkedin can see who views their profiles.

Not if you have a paid account... then you can flip a bit on your profile so the other profile owner just sees "LinkedIn User".

Only if you have it enabled.

You can view other people's profiles privately (either semi-anonmously or fully anonymously), but in exchange you can't see who views your profile.

If you want to see who views your profile, others will see your profile displayed when checking them out.

It is enabled by default though, I think, so a good reminder for anyone who has one to check those settings.

Unless you're talking about Linked In as a company, in which case, of course they see everything because they own everything.

I'm usually pretty careful, but if not, consider this my small sacrifice for the greater good against the child trafficking scheme to shed some light & glean some truth.

Some others taking a look might help blend in and look inconspicuous, although, it probably would look weird to them if suddenly those profiles get a bunch of hits.

But why would those profiles come up on the very first page of Gulag, though? Off just a first name?? You would think their profiles would be buried under a bunch of generic stuff (you would hope, if you care about privacy at all)... Weird. I wouldn't want a ton of randoms finding me off random Gulag searches. Wonder why theirs show up so easily.

PSA: To be very clear, I'm NOT saying to harass these people in any way. Just look for information to try putting the puzzle pieces together.

These kinds of things popping up on regular internet vs darknet makes me think it's a honeypot. But who knows.
