I know I got all excited last week about endorsements, but here’s another great new feature that was being worked on over the summer.
You can now follow some of the top thought leaders in industry and the world!
Personally, I’m following Jeff Weiner, Richard Branson, Dan Shapero, Barack Obama, Arianna Huffington, Deepak Chopra MD, Marcus Samuelsson, Reid Hoffman and many others. There are over 50 individuals from professors to CEOs to other influencers from around the world that you can follow based on your personal interests and desires. Each person is now developing original content for LinkedIn as a way to continue to make the site your go-to place for business information that will help you do your job better and more efficiently. Some of their recent postings have included ‘Dream. Fit. Passion’ by Jeff Wiener (CEO of LinkedIn), ‘Five top tips to starting a successful business’ by Richard Branson, ‘Why Healthcare Loves the iPad’ by Mary Pat Whaley, and ‘The “euro crisis” and US construction’ by Ken Simonson to name a few.
I hope that you will find these articles helpful and interesting!!
