Linda Alexander's curator insight, June 12, 7:32 AM

This is an important article for any job seeker (and the link that follows may be of interest as well).  LinkedIn is one of the primary vehicles for recruiters....

AlGonzalezinfo's curator insight, June 12, 6:18 PM

I agree with @donhornsby on this.  I know there are skeptics when it comes to LI endorsements but I think they are meaningful.

LinkedIn's Endorsements Have Become Meaningless

LinkedIn's Endorsements Have Become Meaningless | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

LinkedIn rolled out Endorsements in late September. The idea was that rather than go through the trouble of actually writing a Recommendation, you could merely check off a box. Think of it as a Facebook "Like" for business skills.

By one measure, the product has been a huge success. LinkedIn says that there have been 550 million Endorsements so far and 10 million are given every day. That level of activity has doubtlessly boosted LinkedIn's engagement metrics.

That has come at a cost, though. While I initially viewed Endorsements with interest, now I consider them a nuisance.

LinkedIn’s one-click endorsements are crazy popular

LinkedIn’s one-click endorsements are crazy popular | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

Sometimes a little thing change the face of the world, on LinkedIn it's the one-click endorsement. I think it's really a great idea from LinkedIn to introduce this possibility. [note Martin Gysler]

 

It took LinkedIn nine years to reach 187 million members. It took the professional social network about one month to pass 200 million endorsements.


Endorsements are LinkedIn’s lightweight version of recommendations. The one-click, vote-of-approval option was released in late September; it offers members a quick and easy way to tell the world that a friend or co-worker is skilled in any area imaginable, say journalism, social media, or even kettlebells. Received endorsements are listed on member profiles in the skills and expertise section.
