I like it, but... yesterday I rebuilt my profile in FR, Google Chrome did not let me post the updates (JS is the reason) but MS Edge worked like a charm. Also they should add a few lines of code to their drop boxes as they do not recognize the language typed above before using the DD-box something like if language is FR drop box options will be served in fr.
Do you want to add a disclaimer? You're actually working for LinkedIn? (only joking)
From what I can see they've made exploration of "LinkedIn Groups" more difficult because I now have to click away from a person's profile to check his groups. Almost feels like they're trying to bump pageviews to please investors?
And what do you make of the new Advanced Search? Is that an improvement? I now have to upgrade to Sales Navigator to use Advanced Search, but wait, I can't just upgrade my Premium Account by paying extra pro-rata. I'll have to lose half a month subscription, cancel my Premium Account and buy a new Sales Navigator subscription.
Apart from these two major problems, there are plenty of small bits that make using LinkedIn so much harder. Really disappointing!
- if you scroll down Home, find something in the feed to share with your network, share it, you end up at the top of the feed again. i.e. it does not take you back to where you were in the feed when you found it = you have to scroll all the way down again.
- Home feed is not in chronological order. You read down your feed, think you have read the latest updates and then find there are new ones mixed in with old.
I didn't like the new format I am still getting used to it.
I am interested in marketing to people on LinkedIn selected quite tightly using filters, either putting an add into their timelines, paid per click, or possibly sending a sponsored inmail, although that might be too spammy.
Has anyone experience of putting up targeted sponsored content?
