Thanks for your feedback, Luce. Generally, this information provides insight into the types of jobs posted by the clients who reviewed your profile. You can use this information to help optimize your profile and make sure the right clients are considering you. On top of that, you’ll be able to see the jobs these clients have posted so you can easily review them.

 


Valeria, I know you mean well but I really think this feature is complicating the technical problems the platform has to face with little benefit for most freelancers. Or at least for me!

To my surprise, I'm finding delivery by notification not that intrusive. Like or or not, I see the logic behind using notificaitons and email rather than (before?) the stats page for "who viewed": It fits into Upwork's "Act now!" (workflow/speedup) mentality.

That said, it could be useful to know that a couple of clients looked at my profile and also posted jobs in my wheelhouse. It would be more useful, of course, to be able to scan all the lookers. I suppose knowledge of two (out of three) is better than zero. I don't see the value of showing the third view, which has no live job link.

While the constant bell alert notification is not intrusive in any way, and it's great to see that people are looking at my profile, the recent clients don't seem to change. Also, why can't we click on and view the other clients/companies underneath the top three? I think it would make this feature even more engaging if, as a freelancer, we could see all who are viewing our profile, but also the client and potential postings that we could send proposals to. Does that make sense?

 

Thanks,

I agree with you, just having the same three clients for days and days isn't that interesting. One of them seems to have contacted me, but his offer is not interesting at all.

I don't understand the point of having the Who viewed your profile section since there are only three entries that never update.

Maybe the real point of this feature is to create a reason for discussion on the forum?

I think this is more useful to new clients and new freelancers. It's kind of how people worry about how many likes they get on social media. 

 

A step in the right direction?

Depends what you call "the right direction"! The direction of stupid crowds not having better things to worry about than getting likes on social media? The end of civilized civilization? This is all SCARY!

I agree. This could actually be useful - IF it worked to anyone's benefit.

Agreed. Irksomely stupid.
