Even though I set the visibility of my birthday to "Only you", people were messaged on my birthday that it occurred.

Keep in mind that even though [LinkedIn states that other people are not messaged when you set this to a private setting](https://www.linkedin.com/help/linkedin/answer/a550097?lang=en), they still are.
Obviously another capitalist industrial shenanigan from one of our favourite data krakens, Microsoft.
