LinkedIn Opens Its Publishing Platform To All Members | TechCrunch | Professional nertworking | Scoop.it

To date, LinkedIn has allowed a small, editorially selected group of “Influencers” like Richard Branson, Bill Gates and Barack Obama to publish their thoughts and advice to its network as long-form blog posts.

New LinkedIn Contacts: Aims to Be Your Personal Assistant

New LinkedIn Contacts: Aims to Be Your Personal Assistant | Professional nertworking | Scoop.it

LinkedIn has announced it is launching a new Linkedin Contacts that aims to create a “personal assistant” for users.

You might be thinking you already have a Contacts section in your LinkedIn account – and you’d be right.  However, this goes well beyond what LinkedIn offers today under the “Contacts” tab.  The new LinkedIn Contacts will reside within LinkedIn and also as a standalone app for iPhone.

What’s new about it?  With the new LinkedIn Contacts you will be able to see information not only about your LinkedIn connections, but also everybody in your address book, calendars and emails. You can have all your professional contacts in one place, instead of scattered around among LinkedIn, email, and other places.

On the official LinkedIn blog, Engineer and Product Specialist Sachin Rekhi writes:

“LinkedIn Contacts brings together all your address books, emails, and calendars, and keeps them up to date in one place. From these sources, we’ll automatically pull in the details of your past conversations and meetings, and bring these details directly onto your contact’s profile.”

Social Network Size Linked to Brain Size

Social Network Size Linked to Brain Size | Professional nertworking | Scoop.it

How and why the volume of the orbital prefrontal cortex is related to the size of social networks.

As humans, we aren't born with formidable armaments or defenses, nor are we the strongest, fastest, or biggest species, yet despite this we are amazingly successful. For a long time it was thought that this success was because our enlarged brains allows each of us to be smarter than our competitors: better at abstract thinking, better with tools and better at adapting our behavior to those of our prey and predators. But are these really the most significant skills our brains provide us with? (...) - by Michael Harré, Scientific American, August 7, 2012

Networking Best Practices

Networking Best Practices | Professional nertworking | Scoop.it

It is obvious that with the arrival of social networking “venues” we have all – well most of us – become fixed on reaching out to people who would have previously been inaccessible to us. Facebook wiped out MySpace and almost compelled us to create our presence over there, and LinkedIn suggested that we really should have a profile if we were to be taken seriously within the business space – and of course, they are right.

Besides establishing authority by writing about industry findings, producing case studies, and how-to articles that reflect the message of your company – you produce the effect of branding your knowledge. If enough people find your content useful and offer their endorsement, you can even earn an, ‘expert’ badge.

Articles themselves receive traffic on the platform and serve as good material for other social media networks (Twitter, LinkedIn, Quora). - from jeffbullas.com, by Erin Nelson
