  1. In the desktop version of LinkedIn, go to your Privacy & Settings area. and click on Visibility in the left menu. In Profile Viewing Options, make sure you have selected, "Your Name and Headline" (full profile) to enable us to see your photo.

  2. In this same Privacy & Settings area, click on "Profile visibility off of LinkedIn" and make sure it is set to "YES." Since live streaming on LinkedIn occurs through a third party, sites off of LinkedIn need to be able to "see" your photo in order for it to be displayed publicly.
