LinkedInformed Podcast. The LinkedIn Show

Welcome to a new episode of LinkedInformed, here are the main topics covered this week.

 

News

 

  • New feature coming - videos are starting to autoplay (without sound) in the homepage feed. This is not something I have seen first hand but John Nemo covered it in a recent post
  • This guy wrote to all 1,109 of his LinkedIn connections last year.
  • Are LinkedIn falsely reporting their page view numbers? Itai Leshem thinks he knows how they are doing it.
  • The new social network called beBee (awful name!) that practices ‘affinity networking’ as detailed in this post from the excellent John White.

 

Episode 100

 

I really want to do something different for our 100th episode, I am still open to suggestions but one I had recently was that someone (maybe a listener) could interview me! Any volunteers or suggestions as to who would be a good candidate.

Let me know at mark@linkedinformed.com

The 5 things you may have missed on the new app.

  • Individual Message Notifications.
  • Advanced Search
  • Desktop Search History Visible
  • Invitation To Connect Replies
  • See How Many Connections You Have

 

Questions

 

  1. How do I find my sent invitations so that I can withdraw some of them?

Go to the area where you view your invitations (see all) and then click on ‘Manage invitations’
