New Interface Articles

New LinkedIn User InterfaceSince my book LinkedIn Marketing:  An Hour a Day has just released, I needed to write this article right away (and its still applicable for those of you moving from the old UI to the new one) http://linkedintobusiness.com/new-featured-groups-on-linkedin-company-pages/

This was the first article I wrote on the new UI: http://linkedintobusiness.com/the-new-new-new-linkedin-profile-revealed/

I wrote this article on what I thought were the 6 best new features (and it includes a video tour!): http://linkedintobusiness.com/6-cool-new-features-on-linkedin-plus-a-video-tour/

And then I wrote this one a week later as some new features showed up: http://linkedintobusiness.com/tag/newest-linkedin-ui/

This was about being able to add media on the new UI: http://linkedintobusiness.com/you-can-now-easily-add-media-to-your-linkedin-profile/

But I was happy about this: http://linkedintobusiness.com/how-to-search-your-connections-connections-on-linkedin/
