    Hi Cindy.

    Thanks for the update here. Some of the new updated LinkedIn Features is great, though these was some of the features that came with my paid account.

    So I have to look at some of the advantages now of having a paid LinkedIn Account. Hopefully it is more then just the added InMails. Still I am a big fan of LinkedIn.
