Tips and Tricks: Recommend LinkedIn News and Hyperlink Status
April 9, 2008
The last few months has seen a torrent of feature update announcements. Given the constant fine-tuning and tweaking of many of these features, we felt it may be a good idea to have a quick little feature snapshot each week, which could also work as a tips-and-tricks post. This week, I'd like to talk about a couple of subtle enhancements to features we launched recently.
1. Recommend LinkedIn News
Members can now recommend news articles to their company. This feature sends a network update to the company so everyone can read and discuss the article.
Of course, you can do the same from your LinkedIn News homepage as well, which contains a much longer list of News articles recommended to you.
2. LinkedIn Status now with hyperlinks (check Network Updates)
Just a couple of weeks ago we announced the ability for you to import your network updates into your personal feed reader with a personal RSS feed. We thought we'll enable you to share URLs within your network updates universe by allowing you to add hyperlinks to status. Now, if you include a link in your status, it will be clickable from Network Updates.
Feel free to leave a question whenever you've a minute and I'll do my best to get back to you. If not, we'll unleash Mario, our community guy, on your comments!
