    So basically I made a Linkedin account recently, and not really knowing how it worked was just looking at peoples profiles, including the profile of my future boss (starting a new internship in the next few weeks, this same person interviewed me).

    They then viewed my profile also. I didnt know people could see when you view their profile, will my (future) boss think it was strange for me to have looked at their profile?!

    I think they'd see it as you being proactive.

    I don't think it would be considered strange, Linkedin is a more professional way of advertising yourself online, so the fact you were looking at the profile of your future boss, I would see that more as wanting to know more about the person you are working for, his career history and qualifications.
