LinkedIn gives users the ability to share photos, documents and presentations in their status updates

LinkedIn gives users the ability to share photos, documents and presentations in their status updates | Collective Intelligence & Distance Learning | Scoop.it

Less than a month after it introduced multimedia content to users’ profile pages, LinkedIn has rolled out similar functionality today for status updates posted from the homepage.

 

Users can now upload images, documents, presentations and other file types to any post that they want to share with their LinkedIn network. The idea is to give users a much broader and richer feature set for communicating with the people they know, thereby increasing user engagement and public perception of the service.

 

Whether it’s a thought-provoking presentation about the future of big data or it’s a picture of an inspirational quote, or perhaps it’s an infographic showing the top trends impacting your industry, the possibilities are endless for what you can share on LinkedIn to add a richer and more visual component to your professional discussions,” Itamar Orgad, senior product manager at LinkedIn said.

LinkedIn Allows You To Follow Key Influencers On The Network; Will Eventually Make Feature Universal | Collective Intelligence & Distance Learning | Scoop.it

Professional social network LinkedIn begun allowing its members to follow companies over two years ago, giving professionals a way to easily access company updates, such as job openings, new developments and more. But the network has not allowed users to follow individuals. Today, that’s changing. LinkedIn is allowing you to follow certain key influencers from a variety of sectors, who can broadcast their news, blog posts and more across the network.

 

Now you can pick who you want to follow from 150 of what LinkedIn calls “the most influential thought leaders.” These include Richard Branson, Tony Robbins, Sallie Krawcheck, Craig Newmark, Barack Obama, Mitt Romney and more. You can read what they are saying, like and comment directly on their posts, and share with your network. Posts from influencers will also include videos, photos, and slideshare presentations. On the backend, influencers can see which content is trending, where followers are based and more metrics.  Over the next few months, LinkedIn says it will be expanding the list of influencers you can follow. Members who are interested in becoming an influencer on LinkedIn can submit their request to the company as well. 

 

Recommendations are also part of the new product—LinkedIn is going to recommend similar people to follow based on who you follow and the content you are reading but will eventually do more as LinkedIn gathers more data on user behavior.
