LinkedIn Connections Beta Mode: Answered Prayer

By: Viveka Friday April 17, 2009 comments Tags: LinkedIn, Networking, LinkedInExpert

Ask prolific users of  LinkedIn the one thing they wished it could do, and they are likely to tell you:  "I'd love a quick way to view and organize my connections so that I can more easily select who I send messages, profiles, and events to." Well guess what - though not available to everyone YET (I had to use my friend Rose's Profile as I don't have access to Connections Beta due - I think -  to the number of connections I have) LinkedIn has come up with a solution:

Connections Beta Mode

Used to be you could only sort by industry or city, but now you can classify and tag your connections however you want.

You can classify your folks with tags LinkedIn has set up, or with tags you create.  (This is going to take and then save me literally hundreds of hours!)

LinkedIn as your own personal CRM - finally they are thinking!!!!!!

And right now its free!
