Over the last week or two LinkedIn has rolled out some new features.
One is the ability to “follow” “thought leaders.” How these thought leaders are determined is anyone’s guess. I’m seeing Richard Branson, Ari Emanuel, President Obama and Mitt Romney on my LI home page when I log in.
(Can someone tell Mitt Romney that you can have a profile pic on LinkedIn now?)
Also, you can now “endorse” LinkedIn connections for certain skills. If you haven’t seen this yet, it should appear at the top of your connections’ pages. Here’s a link to my page, but anyone’s should have this up top: http://www.linkedin.com/in/therichbrooks
Will this change your LinkedIn marketing? If so, how?
Do you like the new recommendations, or is too Klout like?
Do you like the idea of being able to follow thought leaders, or do you wish you could choose your own?
