I would like to link from my LinkedIn profile to my Stack Overflow profile, and vice-versa. Is this possible, and if so how?

If all you want to do is link from one to the other (as your question body suggests) you can surely link to your LinkedIn profile within your SO profile. –  Bart May 7 '13 at 11:10

On SO profile, put link of your profile on LinkedIn and on LinkedIn put your SO profile link :) –  Habib May 7 '13 at 11:13
    
Yes, I could put hyperlinks from one to the other, but was wondering if there was a specific field. Some other websites have a field that specifically asks for a link to the user's LinkedIn, Facebook, etc. account. –  Ɖiamond ǤeezeƦ May 7 '13 at 12:16
    
We don't. Stack Overflow is not a social network, nor do we want it to become one (nor a network site for professionals). –  Oded May 7 '13 at 13:19
    
@ƉiamondǤeezeƦ: As far as specific fields, use the Website field in your SO profile to link to your LinkedIn profile and the Websites field in your LinkedIn contact info (Edit Profile > Edit Contact Info > Websites) to link to your SO profile. –  J0e3gan Sep 13 at 6:12

No, this is not possible.

Stack Exchange uses Open ID for authentication. LinkedIn uses their own system.

The two have no way to communicate.

Yes, this is possible. Communication per se is not necessary, just reciprocal hyperlinks in your SO and LinkedIn profiles.

As far as specific profile fields:

  • Use the Website field in your SO profile to link to your LinkedIn profile.
  • Use the Websites field in your LinkedIn contact info (Edit Profile > Edit Contact Info > Websites) to link to your SO profile. (For help with the LinkedIn side, check out the LinkedIn Help Center article Adding a Website to Your Profile.)

You can see below that I have done this with my SO and LinkedIn profiles.
