Why is there no spot on LinkedIn for my maiden name? I am not sure how my collegiate friends are supposed to find me. I am guessing that it was designed by a man who wouldn’t even think about this.

After this post, I found this issue discussed on another blog. You can find a band-aid for the problem here.

Update April 2009: I’m not sure when they did it, but LinkedIn has added a Maiden Name field to the Profile settings. Thank you.
