We are all guilty of a bit of LinkedIn dwelling, whether it’s checking out the people you perhaps wish to dethrone, or simply just having a nose at a rival – both of which of course come after you have clicked the tab that says who has been looking at you. 

But who, across the buzzing marketing and advertising sector has copped the most looks?

Today, LinkedIn has revealed what it calls the ‘2016 Power Profiles for Australia’, which is essentially  a list of the most viewed professionals on LinkedIn in 2016 across top categories including CEOs, tech startups, marketing and advertising, human resources and sports.
