LinkedIn Contacts Lets chat a little bit more about why I think LinkedIn Contacts are a BIG DEAL! Personal Assistant LinkedIn is making a big deal about the personal assistant aspect of contacts and you know what, I think theyre right. I have hired Virtual Assistants to do less for me, and the intelligence behind the new contacts app is a time saver. The conglomeration of all your contacts, calendars, and even communications in one place is ingenious. Now if they could just add a scheduler and an updater like HootSuite Id be the happiest girl in the world. I love the ability to take notes on my connections, make a note about where I met the person, but more importantly schedule reminders. (I would love it if the reminder feature linked with my calendar and allowed me... Read More


The Downside of LinkedIn Contacts

By: Crystal Rademacher Monday May 13, 2013 comments Tags: LinkedIn, LinkedIn News, Viveka von Rosen, LinkedIn Contacts, New on LinkedIn

LinkedIn Resources First let me state that I make huge fan of LinkedIn contacts. I highly recommend getting on the waiting list if you don't have it yet. That being said I have found 4 downsides to this new awesome feature. The first is that the only alphabetical listing is by first name only. Where is the old contacts screen listed people by last name which makes more sense to me. I am sure that this will soon be rectified. Since this came from the connected CRM system that alphabetically lists people by first name, I think it's just an oversight. I hope. The second one is a little bit more concerning. Again I think it's just an oversight or a glitch in the system from connected and CardMunch. You used to be able to tag your connections which you still can but you... Read More

How Do I Delete a Connection on LinkedIn?

By: Viveka Thursday January 6, 2011 comments Tags: LinkedIn, LinkedIn Expert, LinkedIn Tips, Contacts, LinkedIn Contacts

Deleting connections on LinkedIn can be a little tricky  - so I shot a really quick video to show you how to do it: Go to “Contacts” Click on “Remove Connections” (this is where it is tricky because it feels like you should click on the person and then remove connection) Choose the letter of the alphabet of your connection’s last name Find them and check them off (you can do up to 200 at a time) Click on Remove Connections Affirm that yes, you really do want to remove them ONCE YOU REMOVE SOMEONE YOU CAN NEVER INVITE THEM TO CONNECT AGAIN , so make sure you really really really want to remove them LinkedIn will not tell them you have removed them, they will just no longer have direct access to you. Unfortunately,... Read More
