LinkedIn on Wednesday launched a new “How You’re Connected” tool on profile pages that aims to help members introduce each other. This feature will begin rolling out to English members around the world beginning Wednesday, and the social media company says the types of insights it provides will be expanded “in the months to come.” The addition means when you visit someone’s profile, you will now not only see who in your network knows them, but also how they know each other. LinkedIn hopes that by helping users find “the best path or strongest commonalities shared” between them and the person they’re interested in, it will increase the chance of forming new important contacts. If you’re looking to strike a professional relationship, LinkedIn says this information should help you decide the best contact to request an introduction from.

With the recent changes on LinkedIn it has become more difficult to see the impact of your status messages on your connections, audience and the associated engagement. Back in November LinkedIn removed the option to see historic activities on profiles but you can still see this on some mobile applications, interestingly.
Status has always been a great way to remind people what you are up to, the types of client you work with, the markets you operate in and the values you share. You can read more in this old blog post (link to how to do a status message on LinkedIn blog) but it is less easy to see what has happened with your status messages and if they worked for you or your network.

When conducting online research, B2B prospects will often judge a company’s credibility based on its website and social presence, particularly on LinkedIn.
