Har du set at LinkedIn har genindført den mulighed at du kan se dine kontakters seneste aktivitet?

Det er en god mulighed at bruge, hvis du eks. skal mødes med en af dine LinkedIn kontakter, så du hurtigt kan danne dig et overblik over denne persons seneste aktiviter, og være forberedt på mødet.

Det kan være med til at styrke din relation til personen.
