Interesting things I saw this week
Following on from the news that LinkedIn are now in forcing the 30,000 connections limit it has now been announced that all connection above the limit will be converted to followers
This interesting thing is that for the first time LinkedIn have admitted that large networks cause them problems.
Microsoft takeover. I was at a TEDx Event over the weekend and one of the speakers was Steve Clayton from Microsoft. It was interesting to hear him say that Microsoft's CEO Satya Nadella is much more collaborative than his predecessors.
Perhaps this could be a positive sign for LinkedIn?
LinkedIn published posts and Pulse. It seems that the new format for published posts has now been rolled out to everyone with many people contacting me to ask about the new format.
The Pulse page no longer shows under the Interests menu so you have to go to your home page feed and change is the order to recent
Alternatively you could do what I did which is to create a bookmark for the Pulse page.
If you want to find the Pulse channels you have to scroll down this page until you find some recommendations to personalise your news. Click on "Discover more to follow" and you will find the channels.
It's been a very difficult week for those of us based in the UK following the ‘Brexit’ vote. I have never seen this country so divided and this has inevitably spilled onto LinkedIn.
Whilst you may have strong views on the subject I would recommend avoid discussing such an emotive topic as this on LinkedIn. At least for now and, perhaps in time it will become and easier subjects to discuss.
