New: Get Notified on LinkedIn

September 5, 2012

We’ve been working hard to bring you new ways to access the most relevant professional information and insights to help you be even better at your job, everyday.

Launching today is our new notifications feature, which will keep you notified in real-time when someone likes what you’ve shared on LinkedIn, views your profile, accepts your invitation, and much more.

Here’s what you’ll see: a notification flag at the top of your homepage and a new Inbox envelope icon. A red circle appears when you have something new, such as comments or likes on your shares, an accepted connection request, new inMails and more. This new feature is all part of our ongoing effort to make it easier to keep engaging discussions going with your network.

Also coming soon, LinkedIn notifications on your mobile device, including Android, iPhone and iPad applications. Now, you’ll never miss a comment or update to an engaging discussion about a news article or trending topic on LinkedIn, right from your fingertips.

This new feature is just starting to roll out today, so it may take a few weeks for all members to see the flag appear at the top of your LinkedIn homepage. In the meantime, start sharing a professional update, like a relevant news article, or comment on what your connections are discussing. We’ll take care of the rest and make sure you’re notified when people take actions on your updates.

And stay tuned for more from the team as we're working hard to bring new features that continue to make it easier to discover and discuss what matters to you.
