LinkedIn’s ‘How You’re Connected’ Makes Introductions Easier | SYS-CON MEDIA

LinkedIn’s ‘How You’re Connected’ Makes Introductions Easier | SYS-CON MEDIA | All About LinkedIn | Scoop.it

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.

How to Avoid LinkedIn’s Site Wide Automatic Moderation - Business 2 Community

How to Avoid LinkedIn’s Site Wide Automatic Moderation - Business 2 Community | All About LinkedIn | Scoop.it

As of January 2013, LinkedIn implemented a policy that has since taken on the acronym SWAM (Site Wide Automatic Moderation). The name SWAM was not officially given by LinkedIn – it was coined by the platform’s users, and has since stuck. The basic tenants of SWAM are that if a member of a LinkedIn Discussion Group is either blocked or deleted in one group, he or she will automatically be marked for moderation in all other groups they belong to.

Often times, moderators of these other groups are not even aware that members of their group have been SWAM’d. SWAM has caused significant uproar in the LinkedIn community, angering both members and moderators of LinkedIn Discussion Groups.

Measuring the Impact of a LinkedIn Status Message - Business 2 Community

Measuring the Impact of a LinkedIn Status Message - Business 2 Community | All About LinkedIn | Scoop.it

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.

New LinkedIn Company Page Features You Should Be Using - Business 2 Community | All About LinkedIn | Scoop.it
When conducting online research, B2B prospects will often judge a company’s credibility based on its website and social presence, particularly on LinkedIn.

This is the ideal way to ensure that prospects seeking to learn more about a company will encounter the most accurate and helpful information that will help push them down the funnel. In this context, LinkedIn launched a number of new features over the past few months for company pages, enabling brands to optimize their presence, and better engage with other professionals and brands.
