Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I noticed that in Matt Sherman's SO profile, he has a link to "Careers 2.0 profile" underneath the "Network profile" link. Unfortunely, I can't find any setting, either on SO or on SOC, that would enable showing that link for my profile. Has anyone else stumbled across such a thing?

Perhaps a symptom of this: Is there a difference between a “Stack Overflow profile on Careers 2.0” and a “Careers 2.0 profile”? Do you have a Careers 2.0 profile? – Cody Gray Aug 7 '11 at 5:36
@Cody: Yes, it's at :-) – Chris Jester-Young Aug 7 '11 at 5:37
Existing feature request for just such a capability: Option to link SO user page to careers profile. – Rick Sladkey Aug 7 '11 at 7:03
@Rick: This post isn't quite the same as what you linked: the feature is already there (and so I'm not making a feature request); it's just a question of how to enable it. :-) – Chris Jester-Young Aug 7 '11 at 16:50
@Chris: Right, I didn't say it was a duplicate. If that [feature-request] is [feature-complete] it should be tagged that way and how to enable it should be documented. – Rick Sladkey Aug 7 '11 at 17:08

This is a feature that we were experimenting with some time back. We decided not to go forward with it for the time being -- it was an oversight that it was left on my profile.

It's very unfortunate that it was discontinued, as I would have found it very useful. :-) Nonetheless, it's good to hear an official answer on this, so thanks. :-) – Chris Jester-Young Aug 8 '11 at 15:34
