Display your professional network on other websites
February 13, 2009
Have you ever thought of displaying the public LinkedIn profiles of companies or professionals on your blog or web site? Well, now you can! We recently released a couple of widgets that allow you to easily display information about your professional network and your company profile from within the confines of your blog or website. Given below are a couple of widgets that allow you to do exactly that:
1. Profile Widget:
Profile widget allows you to display a LinkedIn profile for any member with a public profile, either as a pop up or displayed inline within your content. The Profile widget displays the public profile of any member when you click on the IN logo. For e.g. check out the IN logo right next to the author's name on this blog. Your users can then click through to see the full LinkedIn profile page, including how they may be related and communication options.
So, now those public profiles are easily displayed on any website or blog, always in line with the privacy controls of the user who owns the profile. The Profile widget takes the public profile URL as the key for looking up the profile. This will work well for many, but if you need to use a different key value, let us know using this form.
2. Company Insider Widget:
