Hello and welcome to episode 105. It's great to finally be seeing signs that winter is behind us, I love the spring it's probably my favourite time of the year!
There have been quite a lot of interesting articles about LinkedIn this week so the news segment is somewhat longer than normal.
The articles I cover are;
I also mentioned about the changes to LinkedIn contacts and how the "How are you met" feature has been moved into the notes section.
LinkedIn are about to release a completely new look design to their settings page, it's clearly taking its design from the mobile app.
LinkedIn’s to do list
This week linkedIn's most popular feature ‘who viewed my profile’ broke down and at the time of recording it hadn't been fixed. I'm sure this feature will be fixed very soon but it got me thinking about all those areas and features of LinkedIn that have been left broken.
It strikes me that LinkedIn are very keen to keep introducing lots of new shiny features but perhaps they ought to draw a line in the sand and fix or completely remove there broken features before adding anything new.
Here is my list of things that LinkedIn need to fix;
This week's cool thing is a Gmail plug-in that is owned by LinkedIn called Rapportive.
This will show you information about the person who has emailed you from their LinkedIn profile and provides a link to view their profile.
