Certainly, it’s not because I love rockets.
To be honest, I am afraid of heights (a little bit) although I love travelling by airplane.
Putting a symbol in your profile name is daring!
Every now and then I see posts on LinkedIn claiming that the platform will flag and then block all accounts that put symbols and other text in their names.
Guess what! It never happens. At least so far!

By the way, did you get the last one? My name is written in the emoji language!
Well, to the point now.
There are two reasons why you should put a symbol/emoji in your LinkedIn profile name:
1. it makes you stand out from other profiles. But this works only if you post consistently and people regularly see you.
2. you will know when someone sends you a private message on LinkedIn via automation. I love automation in other things but not when it comes to engagement.
