It’s time to backup Linkedin profiles. Did you know that the Linkedin terms and conditions state that they effectively pull the plug on your Linkedin account without any warning at all?

“LinkedIn may terminate the Agreement and your account for any reason or no reason, at any time, with or without notice. This cancellation shall be effective immediately or as may be specified in the notice.”

So in a flash, all your hard work and profile details, recommendations, contacts, etc. could be gone, lost forever.

We all know how frustrating it is to lose such key information so here are a few ways you can create copies of your details… just in case you are unwittingly breaching Linkedin’s terms and conditions at any point, now or in the future.
