LinkedIn Brings Endorsements to Mobile

LinkedIn Brings Endorsements to Mobile | Social Media News | Scoop.it
With today's update, LinkedIn members can now view their top skill endorsements on their mobile profile, as well as accept and grant endorsements from and for other members.

Randy Hilarski's insight:

Do you use endorsements? I do but have not quite seen the value in it yet.

Mike Allton's curator insight, September 5, 2013 11:06 AM

Are LinkedIn Endorsements Spam?

LinkedIn Endorsements are not going away any time soon. While many have criticized LinkedIn and complained about the crowdsourced social signals, LinkedIn has forged ahead and has now added Skills & Expertise support to their mobile app, allowing us to view, approve and submit skill endorsements from anywhere.

But are they really as bad as people say?

No one has ever tried to endorse me for a skill that was inappropriate or even inaccurate. And whenever LinkedIn has recommended that I endorse one of my connections for a skill, they've always appeared to make sense.

And I can honestly report that I have received positive feedback from potential clients and connections who viewed my profile, saw my Skills & Expertise and endorsements, and commented that they were impressed. While I would never hire or expect to be hired on the basis of these endorsements, they seem to provide some value, and no harm.

And there's always the Secret benefit to LinkedIn Endorsements that I've written about before and mention in the article.

So what about you? Do you accept and give out endorsements? Do you think they add any value at all to your profile? If not, what about them is detracting from your professional LinkedIn image?

Thanks for your comments!

Supercharge Your Brand Message With Your Industry's Social Media Influencers | Social Media News | Scoop.it

In the heart of many major metropolitan areas, you often come across street preachers – people who stand on the corner preaching religious message to passers-by. Sometimes they use a boom box to amplify their message. While many people may hear what they’re saying, who is actually listening?

Did you know that there are more than two billion active social media users worldwide, representing a global penetration rate of 28 percent?

 

That’s a huge number. And with it, comes a range of new and unique problems.

 

Addiction, for one. Social networking already accounts for 28 percent of all media time spent online, and users aged between 15 and 19 spend at least 3 hours per day on average using platforms such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Top Ten Blog Posts from 2014

It's become something of a tradition to review the most popular articles from your year. More than just sneaking in an extra blog post on New Year's Eve, I think it's a great exercise... an audit, if you will. While I may have my own personal favourites, as a blogger, what needs to matter more to me is which articles are your favourites. Which topics and posts resonated with you more than all the others?

And while there were some interesting surprises, it's also gratifying to see that several of my ideas and strategies this past year paid off. I put a lot of effort into making a few posts epic - and your responses were genuinely appreciated.

So this is a Thank You post to each of you. Maybe you've seen all these articles, or maybe you'll catch a couple you missed. Either way, I sincerely appreciate you and am looking forward to a fantastic 2015!

#Blogging  #SocialMedia #ContentMarketing
#BestOf2014 #TopTenList 

P.S. I would be remiss if I didn't mention a few people who really stood out this year - people upon whom I depend and owe a great deal. THANK YOU, each of you, for everything you've done to help and support me.
