LinkedIn introduces new features

MUMBAI: In order to help professionals further their career through LinkedIn, the networking site has introduced new features.

It has introduced Notifications along with a redesigned version of Company Pages and Career Pages. Along with this roll-out, LinkedIn is also testing a new feature, Endorsements, in India.

LinkedIn Endorsements is an "easy" way to endorse skills and expertise of professional connections. This is a "light-weight" way to recommend someone that you work with to help them build their professional profile of record. This feature makes it easy to endorse specific skills of multiple connections at one go.

"Furthermore if someone you are connected to has endorsed you, you will receive an email digest and also see an update on your LinkedIn update stream. Currently this is a test roll-out of the Endorsements feature to gauge the value that members are able to derive through easy endorsement of skills and expertise of their professional connections," the statement read.

LinkedIn‘s new ‘notifications‘ feature notifies you in real-time when someone likes what you‘ve shared on LinkedIn, views your profile, accepts your invitation, and much more. You‘ll see a notification flag at the top of your homepage and a new Inbox envelope icon.
A red circle appears when you have some new activity on your profile. This new feature is all a part of LinkedIn‘s ongoing effort to make it easier to keep engaging discussions going with your network. This feature will soon be updated across all of LinkedIn‘s mobile platforms, the company said.

To give members a "seamless" and "simplified" experience wherever they are, LinkedIn has re-designed its Company and Career pages. For members, this means easier access to the information that they want about the companies they care about. For companies, this means a more powerful way to build relationships with their target audience on LinkedIn.
