As advertising for the LinkedIn Premium for-pay Service called "LinkedInPro" they advertise a feature:
"Who's Viewed Your Profile: Get the full list
Get the complete list of who's viewed your profile with Profile Stats Pro. You'll also see how your viewers found you, and learn more about the people interested in you."
This is a feature of their all of their Business, Business Plus, and Executive for-pay services, which range from $24.99-$99.95 per month.
That means LinkedIn is both actively tracking everything you click on specifically as a means to be sold as personally identifiable information to other users of the site, while at the same time promising not to do so.
At this point all you can do is deactivate your LinkedIn account (UnLinked?) since their customer service does not respond to inquiries. What a crock."
