The LinkedIn blog has alerted me to the fact that “profile completeness” has undergone a transformation – and sure enough, my profile is now only 90% complete!


What is one to do?…

Employment Satisfaction Distraction

Posted by on 01 Feb 2012 | Tagged as: Polls

With a second title of “These online polls are tricky…”

I thought it might be interesting to start the year off with an assessment of how people felt about their current employment situation.

And what better way to do that than take a poll, right?

Apparently most people are currently looking for a new opportunity – but asking for two responses on a poll is perhaps too tricky for internet users. Come along and have a look at the results with me…

This is an exciting day – a third party has released a game application for LinkedIn.

I know steadfast users have been waiting to farm through LinkedIn just like they do in Facebook, or solve some crossword type puzzle, or even play a gangster style game, so this is a much anticipated release…

Connecting To The Competition

Posted by on 26 Jan 2012 | Tagged as: Connections

Let’s talk about some LinkedIn advice that I’ve seen others offer – connecting to people you compete against.

You’d think keeping them at a distance would be the smart thing to do…

Stop Bothering Me LinkedIn!

Posted by on 13 Jan 2012 | Tagged as: About the Service

Not mine – but words I hear often enough.

This phrase, or something like, is currently the number one comment or email topic I receive. It has been enough to push me into several articles about the subject – and apparently one more.

Let’s take a moment to ring out 2011 and look back at some of the most read articles for the year.

It’s been an interesting one with the release of The Revised LinkedIn Personal Trainer and the public stock offering from LinkedIn. (The later of which didn’t make much of an impact here…)

It’s hard to compare an article written in January against an article written in November – the one’s just been around a whole lot longer to attract attention. So I’ve used a bit of a weighting to try to factor that in.

And so – here they are – the top ten articles from 2011…

Polling Your LinkedIn Group

Posted by on 23 Dec 2011 | Tagged as: Applications, Groups

I’ve been regularly asked “Can I poll just my group on LinkedIn?” and have had to respond “no” – before today;-)

LinkedIn has linked the polling application to groups and now you can.

It’s not as nice as sliced break, but it’s better than it was…
