LinkedIn?…CBA! Engaging a younger generation.
Welcome to episode 148, this week I interview a young chap called Jack Parsons who is the CEO of an exciting start-up called yourfeed
Jack and the team are about to launch a brand new website and social network called yourfeed, here is how they describe themselves;
Yourfeed is a disruptive online platform that helps ambitious professionals find employment, network with like-minded individuals & gather advice through experienced mentors. The platform connects hiring companies with ambitious professionals favouring skills & ambitions over experience when recruiting.
I found this a fascinating conversation about the challenges that LinkedIn face with the younger generation.
- How can LinkedIn become more interesting to this demographic?
- How can LinkedIn structure their premium accounts to avoid alienating the younger generation?
- Is the solution within LinkedIn or is it too hard to cater for such a wide demographic?
- Do you think this is seen as an important issue to LinkedIn?

New User Interface Update
LinkedIn announced (after I recorded last weeks show) that they are up to 50% roll-out of Neptune (internal name for the new UI) but if you are in the half that doesn’t have it, I may have a genius solutions for you!
Try clicking on this link
So long as you keep open the tab that this opens, you have the new UI…as well as the old one!
Unfortunately, this doesn’t seem to work for everyone, some are getting a 404 error page and others see an earlier version of Neptune that is completely useless.
I’m not sure why this happens but I wonder if it is because those people haven’t imported contacts previously.
This week’s question is about the new user interface.
Question: Where have groups gone?
Answer: Groups are now accessed via the ‘More’ matrix menu (see below)
That’s it for this week, don’t forget to leave a voicemail or email me with any questions or suggestions, till next time.
Have a great week everyone.

It can be difficult to get noticed in iTunes and one thing that can really make a difference is reviews. If you enjoy the show please take a minute to write an honest review in iTunes, it would be most appreciated.
If you are not sure how to write an iTunes review I have made a short video demonstrating how this is done.
