Don't be naked with strangers

If someone reveals everything about himself/herself, then what is the incentive to contact that person? There is no longer any mystery or any excitement. The optimal strategy is to share enough information on one's LinkedIn profile to get the attention of targeted employers, but not to share so much that they can decide, upon reading the profile, whether to contact the person or not.

If that happens, then the opportunity to seduce the employer has been lost.
