I called my dentist recently to schedule an appointment. Didn't have to do any web searches since I already had the number. Once there, I did not make any payments with my credit card, didn't even have to show my insurance card since they already had that information. Not sure if I called from my iPhone or landline but I don't have LinkedIn app installed on my iPhone so it's irrelevant.
Today, I logged into LinkedIn and my dentist is first on the list of suggestions to connect to. Now, if that is not creepy, I don't know what is.
How in the world would they suggest my dentist since there were no emails exchanged with my dentist, no web searches of my dentist, no credit card transactions at the dentist office or anything else traceable?
Do they get data from the NSA or something? It's so creepy I'm considering closing my LinkedIn account.
