A list of LinkedIn Predictions for 2013 LinkedIn Predictions for 2013 In my book LinkedIn Marketing:  An Hour a Day , I made some predictions about what LinkedIn had in store for us More media A few things, like easily adding rich media to our profiles has come to pass ( see more on that here .)  I think that is one of my favorite predictions that came to pass.

Or Why I Love LinkedIn Again Adding Video to LinkedIn I changed my mind again about LinkedIn's new user interface .  Again.  They pissed me off with the removal of LinkedIn Apps , and LinkedIn Events.  I was also not thrilled with the relagation of  LinkedIn Polls being to a Groups only tool.  That being said, I am in love with the ability to add rich media content to your profile, easily, through a simple link. So I am happy with LinkedIn again. Many folks were upset with the removal of apps – it was all we talked about in the #LinkedInChat last week!  However, this new link makes adding video and other content WAAAAAY easier.  And other apps like Tripit, JD Supra’s Legal Updates and take a bit more set up – but are still relatively easy to...

( ) Or watch video below LinkedIn Events To answer your question, “Where the hell did events go?”  Well – they are just gone.  LinkedIn decided they were chaff and threw them away.  Personally I liked LinkedIn Events even though I suppose they didn’t work like they were meant to and people rarely looked at or used them.  But the folks who did use Events really...

LinkedIn. It’s Not Just for Recruiters Anymore

Some of LinkedIn's "Newer" Offers When you say “Social Media” people think of Facebook, Twitter and Google+.  LinkedIn does not always spring to the top of mind.  I suspect this is because LinkedIn, despite its numerous changes, is still considered to be a Rolodex on steroids for jobseekers and recruiters, rather than an active, vibrant social network and marketing tool. If you haven’t visited LinkedIn lately, you might want to drop back in. 1.  LinkedIn has improved its “Contacts” section.  Unlike Facebook (that has a unintuitive “friends” section and complicated “List” and messaging system,) and Twitter (that is even less intuitive “List” app,) LinkedIn has a very intuitive system that allows you not only to “Tag” (sort) your...
