You can add your birthday and marital status to the Personal Details section, found in the Additional Info section on your profile. Fields in this section will only be visible if you enter information. This section doesn't appear on your public profile. To add personal details:

  1. Move your cursor over Profile at the top of your homepage and select Edit Profile.
  2. Scroll to the Additional Info section.
  3. Move your cursor over Personal Details to expand the section.
  4. Click Birthday or Marital status.
  5. Change your information.
  6. Click Save.

As you enter information into the Personal Details fields, clicking the available padlock icons enables you to control the visibility of those pieces of information, making them visible to either only your connections, your network (1st, 2nd, 3rd degree connections and those you share Groups with), or everyone on LinkedIn.
