    This is fantastic seeing Linkedin leverage for the increased number of users trough 2011, 2012 will certainly provide better and more integrated communication not taking anything away from all the other channels I believe so go with developing Linkedi! Great and Goodluck…

  2. Hi Lilach,

    I was unaware of LinkedIn Signals. Awesome way to sift through stuff to get to the meat of what you want. Thanks for sharing the helpful post.

    I will become active on LI now that mentions are up and running. This missing element helps you give props, make friends and grow your network more quickly. The mention feature is one reason I use Facebook even though they do not allow me to post links manually anymore, thos toughies lol…I stick with it, because of um….hootsuite, thank goodness, and the fact that I network with greater ease on the social site.

    Heading over to LI now to use the mention feature…Fun stuff.

    Thanks Lilach,

    Ryan

      Hi Ryan,
      thanks a leaving a comment and I’m very glad you found the post useful:) LinkedIn Signal is a pretty great feature and makes my life a lot easier! And I agree with you, the mentions feature is extremely useful and makes all of our lives much easier – with mentions you can start and build a relationship in no time! I can’t wait for some other features to come out and make LinkedIn even easier to use, as I have to admit it’s not always the most user-friendly social network, but it’s definitely getting there!

  3. Terrific list Lilach and I’m glad you included “mentions” because I saw something about it but wasn’t sure how exactly how it worked. I confess I have mixed feelings about recommendations and endorsements. It’s become obvious that some people do it assuming the recipient will reciprocate in kind – I simply refuse to do that unless I’ve actually worked with the individual. While I always send a thank you note, I have no problem asking the stranger who has endorsed me “and so how do we know each other?”

      Hi Marquita, thanks a lot for your comment:) glad you found something useful – I love the new mentions feature and can’t believe there’s so little buzz about it!
      I agree with you when it comes to endorsements/recommendations, some people are abusing the system and recommending people left and right to get recommendations in return. It’s something that I completely disagree with and it makes life harder for those of us who actually do it because we mean it!

  4. Something to note is that “mentions” aren’t out to all members yet so if you don’t have them yet, keep in mind that LinkedIn is in process of rolling out this feature. But on another note… if your Twitter account is linked with your LinkedIn account, the mentions in your status updates will transfer over to Twitter seamlessly. The mentions, while appearing as a full name on your LinkedIn status update, will change itself to the mentioned person’s Twitter username.

  5. Just to say thanks for a great list on Linked In tools. I’m at the start of my time on LI and a time-saving list such as this is a huge help.

    Thanks and all the best
    Andrew

  6. Hi – I just wanted to say thanks for such a great list. I’m relatively new to LI and while I have read around, this list revealled a lot of aspects I hadn’t heard of before. Anything that saves time is invaluable, so this is much appreciated,

    Thanks again,
    Andrew

    Hi Lilach,

    Thank you, great list there! I’m a big fan of LinkedIn and believe it is under-utilised a lot of the time. I find LinkedIn signal great for sorting through the huge number of posts on the homepage and taking out the material I want to read. I believe that LinkedIn provides huge opportunities if you use it well and it will only grow!

    Lilach,

    Great posting and very well written. Full of really relevant information about LinkedIn. LinkedIn is a key tool for anyone who is interested in growing their business. If you are using LinkedIn as a serious part of your business development activity, it is worth considering upgrading to a Premium Account. This allows you to send InMails directly to people that you aren’t connected to or don’t share a mutual connection with. I have used InMails extensively and it has brought me new business.

    The ability to add notes to contacts and also add tags to contacts are other great features. The tag feature allows you to segment your contacts on LinkedIn and use LinkedIn to send targeted messages.

    I really like LinkedIn Signal and haven’t used this feature before.

    Thanks again for a great posting.

    Pete

  20. Great list! I would also add the new Contacts features as a secret tool worth checking out. Using contact reminders is a great tool for staying engaged with your network.
