LinkedIn has announced Open Candidates, which allows members the opportunity of privately signalling to recruiters that you're open to new offers.

I'm not sure how "private" that will be when the word gets out!

If recruiters can pay extra to see that info the bigger companies will surely find ways to see those signals as well.
